Soups On!

Okay, I am not going to be able to post much the next 2 weeks as we have a big Head Start (Federal) review next week. As soon as that is over, I will be back to my former blog posting maniac. haha

But for now, I will just post a few soup day pics every now and then. You never know when you may see a picture of you on here. We had a great two days hanging out with my Indiana family and also with Mom who came for a quick visit.

PS... I loved the messy eater comment from Leslie below. Too funny.

I see a resemblance, do you?

I may be nuts, but I think they look alike here.

Happy Anniversay to Us!

23 years ago, I met a man at a bar. I thought he was cute, but possibly not very smart. My friend told me that he HAD to be smart if he went to the Naval Academy, but I thought they might have made a mistake --- he kept repeating the same questions to me over and over, like he had no memory. (Found out later, it was the many, many drinks that caused that.)

He said that night he and Jeff each thought the other had gotten our phone numbers .... well there was no way I would have given a guy from a bar my phone number. I worked a week of night shift and then we went to a wonderful little town in Indiana to celebrate my Pappy and Granny's anniversary. That would be a time shown in one of the pictures in previous blog posting. Came back in town and worked more night shifts before I was able to go out again. Funny thing was that I had lots of friends tell me that guy John kept asking them about me. He apparently kept going back to several of the local "dancing spots" looking for me. :)

Finally, I had a night out and was looking for my girlfriend whom I was supposed to be meeting. As I rounded the corner, I saw that hunky looking naval aviator turning around from the bar. I said, "Hi!" and he just stared at me and didn't say anything. I then said, "I'm sorry, I thought I knew you" and turned, embarrased, to walk away. My arm was grabbed and he said, "Lorie, where have you been?"

Well, I didn't know it, but my single days were over from that time forth. I fell and I fell hard. I used to wonder if a certain guy was the right one and wonder if I was really in love. Well, I have told my girls, when it is the real deal, you know it. After 3 months I was so in love with him and fortunately the feeling was mutual. Once he told me he loved me, he opened the faucet and I told him, and told him, and told him. It is a wonder he didn't turn tail and run.

Today, I still tell him over and over and over. I mean, who couldn't love this hunk of macho man?

Happy Anniversary John, in case you don't know....... I love you!!!!
