Not So Wordless Wednesday
We are back to Wednesday again. Wasn’t it Wednesday yesterday? This week I want to share this picture that Suzanne found of the two of us recently. I don’t recall who took this picture, but we can tell that it was taken just outside of my Grandma McClendon’s house in Iva, South Carolina. It is possible that I had put the camera on a tripod and set the timer to take it.
This image was made back in a time when Suzanne and I were dating and we pretty much had the world under control. We had no real problems, although the problems we had back then seemed astronomical. I was in college and had two jobs, both of which were really more like just hanging out someplace and taking people’s money. No real work involved.
Suzanne was a junior in high school. At that time, her concerns were getting good grades and what would she do when high school ended. She also had to deal with those jerks out there who have such low self-esteem that they just have to pick on someone else to try to bring them down.
We were talking about marriage, but had no real idea when that would take place. Life was great. We had each other and no significant financial obligations. I lived in Spartanburg, which was just 70 miles up the road, so, I could be home almost every weekend.
I was involved in Spartanburg County EMS, The American Red Cross (Anderson and Piedmont Chapters). I worked at Sears and Kell-Co grocery in Spartanburg. I also worked in my parent’s Western Auto Store on the weekends I was home. It was a blast.
