CHAPTER 5....OUR STORY

THE NEXT DAY,SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2001, DAWNED BRIGHT AND SUNNY, AS EVERYDAY(just about), DOES IN THE DESERT. AT 7AM YOU SEE AN ORANGE SKY AS THE SUN RISES ABOVE THE MOUNTAINS.THE RAYS OF THE SUN ARE INTENSE AND STRONG IN THE DESERT, EVEN AT 7AM.THOSE OF US THAT LIVE THERE ACTUALLY CRAVE THE STRONG RAYS...THE HEAT TO WARM OUR BODY.AND SO, TODAY, WE WERE GETTING MARRIED!WE GOT UP AND WENT TO A BREAKFAST BUFFET ON THE STRIP.JIMMY'S 2 FRIENDS WERE WITH US,WHOM I'LL CALL L AND S, I TOOK A LIKING TO L AND S..THEY WERE FUN AND HAPPY PEOPLE!  S WANTED TO GET A TATOO, SO WE DROVE THERE AND HE GOT ONE!  THEN, JIMMY AND I LEFT THE 2 AND DROVE DOWNTOWN , ALONG LAS VEGAS BLD. TO GET OUR MARRIAGE LICENSE.  IT WAS A BUSY PLACE SO IT TOOK A COUPLE OF HOURS. EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY SECOND, JIMMY WAS HOLDING MY HAND, OPENING CAR DOORS,OPENING EVERY DOOR. HE TOUCHED ME EVERY SECOND WE WERE TOGETHER, AS IF I WOULD DISSAPEAR INTO THIN AIR.  HE LOVES TO TALK TO PEOPLE, SO HE WOULD TELL EVERYONE THAT WE WERE GETTING MARRIED! I REMEMBER , THE SKY WAS SO BLUE, THE SUN SO BRIGHT...EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT WITH THE WORLD! WE WENT HOME. I RESTED. JIMMY SAID,"FRAN, WE'LL GO RIGHT BEFORE MIDNIGHT TO GET MARRIED. I LIKE TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY IN LIFE."SO AROUND 11PM, WE PROCEEDED DOWNTOWN TO THE JUSTICE OF PEACE OFFICE.  JIMMY HAD A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS FOR ME.  L AND S AND V(THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR), WERE WITH US. IT WAS A WOMAN THAT MARRIED US..IT WAS A CUTE PLACE, THAT THEY HAD SET UP LIKE A CHAPEL. ACTUALLY, IT HAD A VERY SPIRITUAL, ESOTERIC FEELING IN THE ROOM.  YOU COULD FEEL THE PRESENCE OF LOVE THERE. THAT MANY PEOPLE BEFORE US HAD STOOD THERE TO PROFESS THEIR LOVE AND SAY THEIR VOWS.....AND SO, IN A FEW MINUTES WE SAID..."I DO.".............WE WERE SO HAPPY........I WAS WALKING ON AIR.......I THINK I WAS ACTUALLY HAVING AN "OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE!"......I JUST WAS NOT WITHIN MYSELF!...........AND SO WE WENT HOME. WE REALLY WANTED TO JUST BE ALONE!......L AND S REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO TO "THE STRIP!"............AND SO, EVERYBODY HAPPY, THE HOUSE QUIET. THE LIGHTS OUT, WE WENT UPSTAIRS TO BED............AND OH!  ONE OTHER THING!  PRINCE, MISTY AND JIMBO(our dog and 2 cats)  WERE SO VERY HAPPY TO HAVE A WONDERFUL "DADDY!"

I have to tell you, I met my husband online too. People were scared for me. Just knew I was going to meet a maniac :) We have been married for 5 years now. He likes to live dangerously or should I say on the edge
