    First Real Holiday Thanksgiving) Together (sort Of)

    When Anne received her acceptance letter to Wisconsin all the experiences I had from being bounced from Foster home to Foster home welled up inside me.  Until I was placed in my final home, I had tried to build friendships/relationships upon placement; only to be ripped away and...

    Second Christmas Together (First as a 'real couple) Part One

    My first Christmas with Anne, consisted of walking down to her house mid afternoon, wishing the family a Merry Christmas and giving Anne her present.  I had already showed her brother, Dave, the neckless. In fact, he went with me and his eyes popped when he found out the price...

    Half A Continent Takes It Toll. Part One.

    In between our first and second year of college, Anne and I got better.  A relationship (long term, short term and even long or short distance) is like a garden.  One has to care for it each day.  At one point, during that hot summer of 1977, there was a break in construction...

    Second Christmas Together Part Two

    Half A Continent Takes Its Toll (part Two)

    As I stated earlier, 1979 to 1980 was just horrible.  I cannot honestly say I 'pined away' waiting for Anne, but it just was not the same.  In 1980, my senior year I hurt my back in baseball.  I was playing catcher and some idiot was swinging a bat in the on deck circle and...

    Half A Continent Takes Its Toll (conclusion)

    December 12, 1980.  I did not realize Anne had come back.  I was outside splitting wood when I hear this familiar voice say, " Hi Mark!"  I stopped, dropped the axe and ran toward the fence.  I had to pause to catch my breath, I did not say a word I just placed my hand on her...
