I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Seventeen

Merry Christmas, You May Marry My Daughter! By the time Christmas rolled around, Judy’s mom had walked back from her words several months before and blessed us to be married.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Fifteen

Heading Down The Aisle After that night, things flew by at a pace that astounded me. All of Judy’s co-workers were almost as excited as she was, and I think a couple of them were even more excited.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Fourteen

The Setup It was Steve’s turn to cook dinner, and he was busy getting things around. I set the table and then finished the paperwork for the last run we had made. “Well, maybe we could have the girls over here on one of the nights they are off and we are working. I’ve been thinking about how I might... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Thirteen

Out of Something Horrible The next few days were horrific ones on the EMS (Emergency Medical System) side of my life. It started with witnessing a murder-suicide, far too up close and personal. The call had begun as a family dispute with injuries. Every cop, medic, and rescue person will tell you... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Twelve

Just Another Summer Night There came a night that I will remember for various and obvious reasons until I can no longer do so. It was late August night, closing in on Labor Day weekend, and we had a night off together. I had been telling Judy about the Perseid meteor shower that occurred every year...

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Eleven

Family Things A hot July turned into an even hotter August that summer, and just like the weather, our romance simmered. Judy had fixed her work schedule to correspond with mine, giving us the most time together. We went shopping, paid bills, and just plain hung out together. Probably sensing that...

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Ten

The one thing I knew about the desert was that the temperatures would drop. The guy at the check-in desk gave us a small tarp to put on the ground to keep away the creepy-crawly things that live there. It didn’t take long to set up our tent. I was confident I’d hear something from Judy about the... Sign in to see full entry.

I Remember Judy - A Love Story - Part Nine

We Travel Across America During a mid-winter get-together, our group of friends got talking about making a group trip to Vegas by bus. Everyone was going to get a ten-day vacation in mid-July, and we would be off to see the world—or so they thought. Of the original group of sixteen people, one week... Sign in to see full entry.
