when we first met

i remember when i first met karen. i don’t remember the date, but i remember meeting her. my sister was visiting my my sophomore year of college. i think she was staying with some girl friends of mine (space intentional) and we ended up getting a group of people together to go out to the “gambols” at colonial williamsburg. if i recall correctly, the gambols was light food and colonial games— not exactly the coolest thing, but i was not exactly the coolest kid to begin with.  i remember karen being with the group and i remember her teaching the group how to play “night baseball” poker.

Why New Orleans?


you may wonder why new orleans for our 20th wedding anniversary. 

it was new years eve 1993. i was working as a teacher in huntsville and karen was working at home in auburn. we went down to new orleans to visit our friends bruiser and andrea, who had moved to new orleans after college. we had a great visit and we were all down by the max brewery near the stroke of midnight. i remember the countdown 5…4…3…2…1…happy new year. i said to karen, “let’s get engaged this year.” and we did.
