Something new has been added to my life.No, we did not have another child! Vera, retired, and for the first time in over 45 years, I have a new girlfriend.
Work as all of you know, provides income, a support group, direction for you life, it also takes time. It is the contract we silently sign to give time for money, etc. Done out of the necessity clothe, house, and support the needs of a family, it drains away all inertia to improve relationships, open vistas of travel, create masterpieces of art and craft.
Vera and I met as she was about to enter college and I was living the BMOC (Big Man on Campus) role. We saw each other and as they say we were hit by the thunder bolt. We both agreed that having our children early and spaced together was best for us because we had so much that we wanted to do. We did travel with our children and we loved having their activities to be a apart of, but we are the type that like to hold hands and share life as a couple. So, now world, look out! Here come "Cactus and Dimples". There are books to share, places to go trouble to get into.
