You are quite the romantic Seek; I'll give you that.

But, for me, THAT DAY in all it's glory, has included three crucial components each time I imagined it.

*Family
*Dress
*Church

Being the traditionalist that I am, I don't think I'd want to get married without them.

Okay, score another vote against elopement.

Take care.

I got my bazookas out of the basement. I have to carry these things to defend myself against guppy's gun.

Oh wait, that was "batookas". That must be Southern for something; it's not in my Southern-Northern dialect dictionary. I might have to run back and grab them.

Whew! It was getting musty down there. Did I miss much? Besides my good cyber friends, that is.

Hi Seek,

I think eloping is a very romantic idea.

I never realized how romantic my brother was until after a six year long distance relationship my sister-in-law was finally able to come to this country. The day she arrived my brother had a limo pick her up at the airport and brought her to the sailboat he had rented in the Florida Keys, where they eloped at sunset.

Now THAT is romantic!

I never knew he had it in 'em.

Guppy:

great start....

fixin - gettin ready to. as in I'm fixin to....

folks - people

cric - creek

ruf - roof

mushmelon - cantelope

ain't - am not

gonna - going to

ain't gonna - I'm not going to.

(lol. I do know proper english. just don't use it often)

I think I'm more hick than southern. Well, I know so, Missouri is not in the south. We are just in the middle so we mixed southern and northern. How interesting.

Will put more if I can think of more.

OMW,

Yes, they did meet over that time. They initially met getting their Masters' degree at the same school in Holland. When they graduated, she returned to Romania and he to the US. Over the next several years, he visited Romania when he could but during that time, due to visa requirements, she was unable to visit the US. They eloped when she was finally able to come here. They will be married six years next month.

Hi Lolli,

Now that's a romantic story. Wow, a 6-year long-distance relationship. I can't picture that myself. I don't think I could do it. I need somebody who's here in person for a relationship.

I'm glad they finally got together.

By the way, how did your finals go? Didn't you have some recently? How much school do you have left?

Hi Seek,

Yes, it is a great story and like you, I'm not so sure I could do it myself. One thing I neglected to mention is that once my brother set his sights on someone, they usually had to fake their own deaths to shake him. LOL....all kidding aside, he does tend to be very persistant, which thankfully for him....ultimately paid off. She is a great person.

As far as finals go....I got a 98 on my Abnormal Psych final and just found out tonight...a 93 on my Developmental Psych final. I have been in contact with my Dev. Psych professor and she is going to right me a letter of recommendation to help me get accepted into the Psychology program of the 4 year college I plan to transfer to. I hear the program is very difficult to get into so hopefully her letter will help. I am done with the Spring semester and taking the summer off. I will start again in the Fall. I probably should take the summer classes but honestly needed the break.

Thanks for asking my friend and thanks for the support in support 😉

Love,
Lolli

Hi OMW and thanks

Yeah (((Seek))) I'm back for a while and I totally missed you, dude.

You do make a strong argument about not wasting valuable time with a long engagement when you could be a real married couple. I do see your point.

But, I learned the value of anticipation a long time ago. And in my experience the old adage: "It's worth the wait" is usually true.
