    When the Injun Met the Angel

    John inspired me to write this instead of another bit of history.
    I saw the lady who has become my wonderful wife for the first time in church in Wickenburg. There was a brunette I knew but thought was boring but she was sitting with 2 cute little blondes I didn't know. After church the cutest one w/ red blonde hair introduced herself as "Linda from Phoenix". I think I said something clever like, "DAAAHHH". We talked a little & met again @ a young peoples get-together in Phoenix & later still @ a mutual friends wedding & she seemed nice. I asked a friend whose brother had dated her sister for a phone number because there was over 30 people in Phoenix with the same last name (in 1985 Phx was 1/4 the size it is now). When I called her the conversation went something like this:
    Angel: "Hello"
    Injun: Hi, Linda this is Irvi-
    A: "Who?"
    I: "Uh, Irv-"
    A: "Do I know you?"
    I: "Uh, I... we met @ church in Wickenburg and-"
    A: "What do you look like?"
    I: "Um, well I;m 5'8" dark hair and-"
    A: "I don't remember you"
    I: "uh-"
    A: "How did you get my number?"
    I: "A friend, Vern gave-"
    A: "How do you know him?"
    I: "We go hiking & camping sometimes-"
    A: "How come no one ever takes me camping?"
    I: "Wanna go camping?" (what the heck, she doesn't have any idea who I am I can't screw up any worse now no matter what I do!)
    A: Laughs, "no... why are you calling me?"
    I: 'I... uh... was going to ask you out to dinner on Saturday but-"
    A: "ok"
    I: "Huh?" (Did she just say YES?) "er, I'll pick you up around 11 ok?"
    A: "You mean in the morning?"
    I: "Uh yah... I... Oh! Where I'm from dinner is @ noon, supper is-"
    A: "Ok"
    I: "Where do you live?"
    A: "You have my phone number but not my address?"
    I: "uh yeah I-"
    A: "never mind it's________" Do you hang out w/ Vern Duane & John?"
    I: "Uh, yeah-"
    A: "They're boring! Are you boring? Oh never mind I'll find out Saturday. Bye."
    I: "Whew!"

    When I went to pick her up I rang the doorbell & a middle aged man came to the door & looked @ me balefully. "What?"
    "Is Linda here?"
    "I'll see" - he shut the door in my face.
    A moment later a beautiful lady w/ red-blonde hair opened the door.
    "Dad! You could @ least let him in!"
    "I didn't know who he was, you said you had a date for dinner not lunch!" (to me lunch is something you pack to take w/ you).
    A: "Want to meet my mom?, where is Mom?"
    Dad: "I think she's working in her garden."
    I: "Uh, you hungry?"
    A: "OK, let's go eat, bye Dad"
    I: "Where would you like to go?"
    A: "I don't care, what are you in the mood for?"
    I: "I feel like a steak"
    A: "You don't look like one!"
    I: "A little overcooked maybe..."

    We went to Bill Johnsons Steak House & she ordered a sandwich because she couldn't eat a whole steak (later accused me of marrying her because she was cheap to feed).
    I discovered for the first time in my life I was with a girl I could actually talk to. We discussed everything (not just shoes & clothes like all the other girls I'd met). We spent the whole afternoon and evening talking, driving around in my old Jeep, sat beside the river for a while, ate cheeseburgers when suppertime came around. She could talk intelligently about anything but listened well also.

    On the way home I thought to myself, "I'd like to see her again every day... wait a minute did I just say that? I was never going to get married!"

    2 weeks later we were engaged.
    2 months after the first date we were married... We've been described as "2 opinionated pissheads who just happen to agree on almost everything & seldom argue." It's been 25 wonderful years so far...

    "Is Linda here?"
    "I'll see" - he shut the door in my face.

    Sounds like my dad when I was a teenager.

    Well Nathalie and I first met in early '91, after returning from Desert Storm. In August of '91 I received orders to Germany. I came home and told her, her reply was "what are we going to do??" I replied that she could stay here at Ft. Bragg or marry me and go with me. She said OK! Its been 19yrs since the 19th of this month. I'm surprised she's kept me for all these years!!!!

    How could she not marry someone who is so romantic!!!

    Congratulations -- and let me extend my heartfelt wishes for you to have many more surprised years.
