friday feature

(photo from a holiday train ride, 2006)
what a guy
we love him
he's a keeper
i'm lucky i have him!
waaaaay back in 2001
we met
but not the way most people meet
4 months before we met
i left someone
moved into an apartment by myself
loved being alone finally
lots of time to find me
4 months before we met
he left someone
moved to a new state by himself
my state
ohio
same apartment complex
streets apart
our circles would never have crossed...
if it wasn't for the phone company
with modern day technology
our phone lines became crossed
didn't know why a man
would sometimes pick up
before i got to the phone
strange messages on my voice mail
for someone
not me
phone company says find his number
then we can fix it
they didn't know who they were dealing with
i 'heard' him on the phone
making a purchase
his southern drawl
so cute
gave vital info
i wrote it down of course
did nothing with it that day
next morning
leaving for work
see a truck
plates from the south
must be him
i thought
saw him
hoped it was him!
i called that night
to explain our phone anomaly
he was cute...
thought we had a party line or something
not in the big city baby!
just crossed phone lines
we talked
for over an hour
like old friends
we hung up
two weeks later
he called
asked me to dinner
this is where
stranger danger
went out the window
he came to pick me up
we had dinner
and the rest is history!
loved him from day one!

My husband would say it was fate. That is what he says about how we met. He was at the right place at the right time in your life!

I wonder if the phone company really crossed your lines? Or was it someone from up above? Sweet story!!
