~Blooper Thoughts~

Ten years ago we eloped into the winds of chance

cityhall was where we sealed our romance

three months of dating and then years of grief, he stole my heart lie a common thief

I remember the day quite well, it was like I was under a spell, we must have been we were in blue jeans, baseball caps, tennis shoes and Tshirst, the vision of that moment sitll hurts

but he was holding my hand like a brand new man, I assumed it was the age difference and he needed help to stand

he was smiling from ear to ear and so was I, we were so happy I almost cried, then we made it to the front of the line, the city clerk took our application and said sign on the dotted line

wait over there please someone will be with you soon, so we sat patiently in the waiting room, all of a sudden we heard our names called, before we could get to our feet, people were alread rusing our seats

the chapel was just a little sitting room, a few chairs and an arch design just for two, as we approach the poteum there stood the city clerk, bible in hand smiling with a badge on her shirt

the shock of it all must have shown on my face, because she begin to explain she was licenced by the state

well of course I asked her to prove it to me, because the thought of it was stealing my glee, at that point there was nothing much I could do, she had the documents to prove she was licenced for that to

I stood there for a moment to reevaluate the situation, took a good look around and realized there was only one exit at her station

back the way we had came in, across the lobby to the parking lot, at that moment I was emotionally distraught

but my life up to that point had been a rat race and it was time for me to settle down in one place besides, the expression on his handsome face, ultimately and permanently sealed my fate

      Karen, Jane and I were married by a Probate Judge and a woman at that. I have joked over the years telling her it wasn't legal, being married by a woman. But the paperwork is legal and I have re-upped for 38 years now. We were young an in love and it was Friday we only had a weekend getaway in Gatlinburg to seal our marriage. I still remember all the events of the weekend right down to what each of us had for our first breakfast together as man and wife, walking the streets of Gatlinburg and buying her chocolate fudge and the passion we enjoyed in that little motel room. We didn't have much then but our love and it is still strong and vibrant.
