Love American VS Korean Style(1)


I first saw my wife in the AAFES (Army & Air Force Exchange Service) snack bar, more than 30 years ago. She was with an army buddy so-so friend of mine (I'll call him Love Boat's Capt. Stubing) and his Korean wife (Mrs Stubing). It seems the future Mrs JihadGene (I'll call her KIM) was best-friends with his wife (the Korean version of Mrs Stubing). Well, like my Uncle Bob would do, I just walked right over there, said hi, and I sat right smack down at their table. Why was I so bold? The answer is easy. My future wife (Kim) was beautiful! Within about 1 minute I had offered her everything and anything in the snackbar, including salt & pepper shakers, silverware, tables and chairs. She thought I was either a cute nut or just nuts. I was in love. It was love at first sight and I was like an Ernest T. Bass from the Andy Griffith Show. I sooo felt like, "I gotta get a date with that beautiful girl"! We said goodbye and I drooled my way back to the barracks. I needed a plan and so I formed one. (To Be Continued)

I'm a Libra. What can I say. I'm blessed. I won the Lotto in marriage and for some damn reason she has held on to me.

I will have to get a scanner for some of the old photos...

Ah, love at first sight. It's a wonderful thing.

I had to stop and think about it, but yes, it was bit over 31 years ago that my husband walked into the room. We've been married for 29 years. :-)
