Happiness & Sadness #7

We went to the bowling alley and I thought Wayne would become bored but he seemed to fit in right away, the girl's really liked him and told me so. Bill and Sandy did not stay very long, I told them I would give him a ride home. We rode back to Ruth's with her and she invited us in , I told her it was too late, she understood. I let Wayne drive my car, he did not own a car, but he had a drivers license, because he drove truck for his company, this way I would know where to pick him up, if we dated again. We ended up talking until three in the morning, just telling one another about ourselves and the time flew by. He ask me if I wanted to go out Saturday, which was today, because we talked into Saturday, I said yes , I thought he would try and kiss me but he just said goodnight, got out and went into the house.

The next day he called and wanted to know if a movie and going for a snack after wards was okay, of course. I can't remember the name of the movie but afterwords we went to A & W drive in for a bite to eat, I loved their frosted root beer and hamburgers. We went for a drive out by the lake and parked, he ask if I minded if he kissed me, of course not, he kissed better than anyone I had ever kissed. We stayed for a little while, I let him drive me home, another kiss, I told him to take my car, my prized possession, he said he would come out around noon and we could think of something to do.

Sandy called and woke me up Sunday morning, she wanted to know how things went. While we were talking she told me Wayne wanted to meet me because he had tickets to the Thanksgiving dance and needed a date. My heart sank, he did seem to like me, we had a good time and he kissed me goodnight, I let him take my car home, at this time I wish I had not. Was it over before it began, I was hurt, and really did not understand why, I had just dated him once, should I tell him it was over, my heart was saying not yet. Noon arrived and so did Wayne, I had decided to tell him what Sandy had said and let him do the talking.

I was in for an even bigger shock, he was at the tail end of a divorce, whoa, did I want to get involved with this, it was new to me. He explained Joleen had taken the kids back to her home state, Oklahoma, for a vacation, she sent him a letter and wanted a divorce. The reason she did not say that is why she was going home, she knew he would have stopped her, Wayne said the marriage had been over for ar least a year. They married while he was in the Navy, both young, especially her, she was only 16 years old. The children at this time were Tonda, 3years, Terry, 14 months, so young to be seperated from their dad. I told him I would have to think this over, I was hurt, I really had feelings for this guy. I took him home and we said goodbye, I cried all the way back home, not knowing what I would decide.

Hi Margaret,

Oh, I can feel your dissapointment, as you found out the rest of the story, so to speak. You had just begun, and would it already have to end? I can't wait to find out more.

I am really enjoying your story!

Have a great evening.

Oh my! I can just feel the disappointment, you must have felt, when he told you he was in the process of getting a divorce. That must have knocked the wind out of you, no wonder you cried all the way home. In the 50s divorce was viewed differently than it is today. We know it all worked out in the end, but I can't wait to see what follows this devastating blow!

Just now getting around. Seems I have been too busy lately to catch up with my friends.

What a surprising part of the story. I can see why you were so upset. I can't believe someone didn't mention to you that he was going through a divorce. But I know it apparently worked out ok in the end, because you two love birds are together.

I don't know if I could help you with putting photos in your story or not. It's not really that hard, if you already have them loaded on your hard drive. I'll send you an e-mail.

Will be waiting for the next installment.

Dear Margaret ~~ So the story continues and the
divorce must have been a shock at that stage of your life. Patty is so very helpful, you will find. Glad you enjoyed the Poem and esp. the Seniors Moment. That was my favourite.
The fires have settled down - a few large ones
still burning in inaccessible areas. Take care my dear friend. Love, Merle.
