1978...she was a starter on the girls high schoot basketball team. me, a simple musician(sp? wgaf!), granted free admission to the games, in return playing the "charge!" piece on my trusty trumpet.

i gazed at her as she set a pick, then fell in love when she fouled out at 28seconds into the 3rd quarter. i knew we were destined for eternal love.

so after the game, i put the move on her best friend. worked like a charm. married 27 years. 3kids that actually are not f@cked up. 3grandkids w/one more due in june.

she's a lucky gal.

At work. I got 'the thunderbolt' just like Michael Corleone. Powerful mojo. Started breaking all my own rules (never sleep with anyone crazier than you) next thing you know...

We made all the hotspots, my money flowed like wine
Then that low-down southern whiskey began to fog my mind
And I dont remember church bells, or the money I put down
On the white picket fence and boardwalk
Of the house at the edge of town
But boys I do remember the strain of her refrain
And the nights we spent together
And the way she called my name
If you'll be my Dixie chicken I will be your Tenessee lamb
And we can walk together down in Dixieland
Down in Dixieland,
Been many years since she ran away
I guess that guitar player sure could play
She always liked to sing along
She was always handy with a song
But then one night at the lobby of the Commodore Hotel
I chanced to meet a bartender who said he knew her well
And as he handed me a drink he began to hum a song
And all the boys there, at the bar, began to sing along
If youll be my Dixie chicken I'll be your Tenessee lamb
And we can walk together down in Dixieland
Down in Dixieland, Down in Dixieland

brideowanian was my sister's roomate at college. She came home with her for a weekend while my at-the-time was being a real biatch.

A few months later, she came back for new years eve....and I got tingly, and not in the normal place.


Coincidently....my dad met my mom, because she was his sister(my aunt)'s roomate at the same college.

1993 we were both students in an advertising portfolio workshop.

It's a miracle we lasted because it's competitive and we were both starting our careers at the same time.

This place in Columbia, MO:

I owned the Road Apple. I started it with a partner in 1978 and closed in 1985. Ed Tibbs owned the building. Ed was in his 70's when we started doing business together and he use to tell stories of his running crap games. He was a wise investor and probably no black man at that time owned as much property as he did in Columbia. He told me that he paid Ike and Tina Turner and their 8 piece band $125.00 a night. After the Paradise Club it became The Lighthouse. When we found the building it was not being used. We leased the building and bought all the old long tables from a closing Shakies Pizza. Once the Frats and Dorms realized they could charge a cover the building was always booked on the weekends. I had a great private office out there and had way to much fun. A good friend Walter Anderson aka The Sugarman use to throw Return to Paradise Parties. The buiding is down the road from Patricia's up on a hill on the left. It is now a church. By the way, The Ranch House was were McDonalds is on Clark Lane. I worked there in college. It was started by a little cigar smoking Greek guy named George Patrakus. At the time it was the only building out there. All of a sudden I am feeling old.

http://board.columbiatribune.com/index.php?showtopic=5784&st=0&p=51589&#entry51589


Basically an concrete block building with short pile carpet that stuck to your feet due to all the beer that was spilled on it. I think all the tables were picnic style. As mentioned above, frats and dorms rented it out, bought a bunch of kegs, hired a DJ, then charged $2 or $3 a head to underage HS and college kids. In '79 it was mostly college kids and by'81 is was mostly HS.

The DJ played "Riding the Storm Out". I wanted to dance to it, so I asked this girl who I knew would say yes, since she'd given me the eye every time I'd walked by her. Life is really weird.

Our marriage was arranged upon my eighth birthday by my paternal grandfather, the Archduke of Ljubljana, and her second cousin, once removed, Juan Carlos III, the exiled second vice mayor of Chihuahua.

We met shortly after the birth of our second child.

My wife and I went to high school together, and dated for several months our senior year. She was gorgeous, funny, smart... and more than just a small amount of the time... she was a raging bitch (she'll admit it). So we broke up before prom, I ended up going with a friend, and she went with a guy she ended up with for 7 years.
Had to sit next to her at graduation, which I was so pissed about, and she antagonized me the whole time in very small ways. But then she moved away, and I didn't talk to her for 7 years.
So 7 years later, I'm dating this girl, who I'd been dating for several years, but made sure to let her know almost daily that I wasn't her boyfriend. She calls me one day and says, "Guess who I saw on our high school alumni website?" and tells me about my ex. We laugh and I pretend that I wasn't interested, and then hang up the phone and sign in to the site. Within a couple of days, my ex emailed me, and we went to have drinks. By the end of that night, it was all over. I got home and was a mess. I called another ex girlfriend, who I had maintained a friendship with, and told her about it and she told me, "Everyone could always tell there was something just a little more about you and her than there was the other girls you dated."

So I went ahead and married her. It helps a lot that she isn't the raging bitch she was in high school, but kept all the other great stuff. I definitely married up.

My wife and I got set up at work by a coworker. Since it was a top-secret military project, I had the advantage ahead of time of knowing that she was financially secure, not going through a divorce, was heterosexual, didn't have a drinking problem, and could pass a drug test.
