She was working in a bank in Williston, ND. She disappeared for a while then showed back up and I latched onto her the second time. That was '82.

Went by our head coaches apartment to see if it was my night to switch the water over on our football practice fields at midnight. She was playing cards with my bosses wife. It was my night to switch it over. I told her I would be back at midnight and she could help me change the water over. She agreed and we sat there and talked till the sun came up that morning. That was in 1984 we got married in 1987 and still going.

The book of faces.

She's older than me by a few years, but her brother and I were the same age. She saw my Facebook page through a mutual friend of mine and her brothers and she tracked me down and hog tied me. First date was a hog hunt, now we're married with 2 purdy girls. (Hers from previous marriage) and one of our own. Been together 3 years.

We were both either engaged or married to other people. Met at a college football game while I was visiting a buddy. Eventually we became friends, then good friends, then life took us apart, ended up both divorced and now together. All told about 7 years, married since last June. I'm done for and/or she's stuck until I'm on the wrong side of the daisies.

At the Pink Leopard gentlemens club. Her name is Anastasia ( I think). She's a double amputee and wears a wig but works real hard and I love her for that. She doesn't treat me very kindly and disappears for weeks at a time and often steals from my wallet but I love her just the same.

At an apartment complex, she had just moved in with her fiancé that she had been with for 4yrs. And they had just signed a 1 yr. lease!�� worst part was, he had to drive by my apartment and see her car parked out front for almost 8 months! We have been together 12 yrs. and have two kids.
