Word High July for 16 July 2016 Word Marahuyo

Click here to learn more about this blogging challenge. 

Today’s word is Marahuyo. This word means to be enchanted.  I recall 03 November 1984, I was absolutely enchanted when my beautiful child-bride Suzanne walked down the aisle at Boulevard Baptist Church in Anderson, South Carolina. 

If anything, this was one of the most unusual relationships I have ever heard of.  It started when Suzanne’s friend, Holly, introduced us by asking me to see how cold Suzanne’s hands were.

We did not get together then as you found out in my post Master Control. Later, I broke up with Suzanne because I am stupid.  Then, her cousin called me and put Suzanne on the phone. We serenaded one another with records over the phone and then I asked her to take me back.

After we had dated for a while, my father proposed to Suzanne for me. Even today, I am enchanted by Suzanne’s beauty, grace, and charm.

What about you?  What enchants you?

This August 18th, in honor of my child-bride, Suzanne’s birthday, we will be giving all of our books away free.  Please download and read these books.  We have had to change the way we make money here since I suffered three strokes back in May.   We no longer sell Avon door-to door, but you can still buy it on our website .  You can also help us by purchasing things from our Etsy store.

Special Notice

You can help us by downloading our books free.  Then, read them.  Every quarter, Amazon has a contest to determine which 100 authors in the United States have the most pages read.  If we make it into the top 100, we will share a part in a pool of money Amazon sets aside for the top 100 authors.

Please also give us feedback on our books and leave your honest review at Amazon.  We thank you.

  1. David, what a great story....we love RC cola...since I was born in Indiana, spent summers in Chicago and Michigan (grandparents) and raised in Florida, we call it "pop" not soda or soda pop, just pop. I also grew up on Nehigh grape and orange. Now, with that said, my son was born and raised in Alabama and was raised on Dr. Pepper (ewwwwww, just saying, lol). Thanks for the smiles and the memories of RC Cola. OH, one more thing, before I bore you to death, RC cola can't be found here in western NY...how sad is that?

    You and Suzanne are such enchanting folks. smiles

    1. Where we grew up it was called Coke. No matter what brand or flavor you wanted, it was called coke. So, if you wanted a drink, you would say get me a coke. The other person would say what kind and you would tell them, Sprite, Tab, Pepsi, Dr Pepper or even Coke.

      Out here, it is called soda water or sody water.
