Can you believe it’s a year! Already! Wow. Yes, today (July 31, 2006) is the one-year anniversary of when I first spoke to Marline over the telephone. Here’s what I wrote about it the next day: Here’s the thing. I USED to think I hated talking on the phone. But yesterday, I was on the[…]
Today, after work, Marline and I volunteered to be part of a photo project. A friend of mine is taking photo courses, and had assignments that required other people. If he lets me, I’ll post a couple of the shots online, after they’re processed. After coming home, Marline and I did a project of our[…]
It’s not quite a “trial by fire,” but my recent car troubles have all come at the same time. A month ago, it was the fan belt (which, on modern cars, powers much more than the fan). A week ago, it was the car’s battery, which died. Today, it was the alternator. The budget is[…]
Well, since my last entry, Marline has helped me at work five more times, though now she’s getting paid for it (not much, but a little something to help us out). Friday night, she helped for seven hours. The first half, she was downloading and formatting filler; the second half, she was filling pages. Our[…]
Saturday was tough, but we made it through, thanks to Marline’s help on Friday night. In the evening, we went to my parents’ home, to do some laundry, have dinner, etc. On Sunday, we drove to Oklahoma City. I should say, Marline drove to Oklahoma City. That’s right, folks. I sat over in the passenger[…]
The old phrase “Thank God it’s Friday” doesn’t really mean anything to me anymore. For nearly five years, I’ve been working on a Tuesday-through-Saturday schedule. Today (Friday) was dangerously busy. Besides the normal get-up-and-get-to-work-by-8-o’clock routine, I left work before lunch to pick up Marline, since several of the people from work decided to have lunch[…]
If you want to read a really long and rambling complaint of mine, click here. It’s the promised complaint about all the crap that gets installed on new computers besides what you really need.
Thanks for the information, Cassie! (My cousin Cassie has just settled in Germany). To catch everyone up, Marline and I have been organizing our lives, developing routines, and getting used to married life. It’s fun, it’s frustrating, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. One thing is for sure — with Marline around, there is[…]
She Sleeps Wil C. Fry, 7/7/06 She sleeps One fire-hot hand draped on my chest Cool night air whispers in open window Her heart beating The time-stamp of the universe Who is this curious Woman Who has attached herself to me? In moments of triumph In times of despair She has always been there Destiny’s[…]
Wow. I’m typing this on a brand new computer. It’s really nice. THANK YOU MARLINE.
Marline and I went to Seminole’s Fourth of July festival yesterday. In years past, it was just an evening fireworks display. This year, it was a 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. extravaganza. Or at least that’s what they’d planned. But the new city park (Magnolia Lake Park) wasn’t finished yet. The parking lot was disorganized[…]
Wow. It’s been almost a week since I’ve blogged! It’s not because nothing is happening, but because I’ve stayed busy. Marline and I are getting along famously (102 percent of the time), and I just realized that we’re already setting patterns that could follow us for the rest of our marriage. Except that the patterns[…]
