In pursuit of dreams.....
But there are other daydreams I have. One is that perhaps there is another lady who I could spend the rest of my live loving and living with. I will never forget my Annie but I really do want to try to get the magic we had back into my life. Maybe it is just a daydream, but someone does win those lotto prizes rather than just getting "Sorry, not a winner" and maybe it will eventually be me. I think you have a better chance of winning if you buy a ticket.
Recently I connected with a lady who I attended school with. Our high school had over 600 graduating seniors so the chances of really knowing someone there was not real good but I do remember her. I found her on Classmates.com and we have exchanged email and a few phone calls since then. It turns out that we also went to the same grade school for a year or so but I am pretty sure we were not in the same classroom there as I don't remember her from that time. We did go to the same college where she finished & became a teacher but I transfered from after two years.
Anyway, in the spirit of having a better chance of winning if I buy a ticket, I have a motel reservation in her town for tomorrow night and will drive there tomorrow to meet & spend some time together. Will S.W. be the one I am looking for? I dunno, but if I don't try to reach for the gold ring I know I'll never get it.
Here is a quote from Rain's post of today and I think she is right on:
"Are we ever too old to dream? I think as we age, we may have to adjust the dreams for what is physically possible; but there can, and I believe, should be dreams at any age. To follow a dream sometimes does have risk attached. Some would say forgetting your dreams will make you happier, but for me, I will hold onto mine and take my chance to make them real if the chance comes."
I hope I am not like Don Quixote, tilting at windmills. More later.
Good luck to you, friend. If at the least you make another good friend and that is all, that is still a rich blessing in itself. And if it's more than that..... well like I said, you deserve it. :)
Have fun !
and I loved the last post ,memory lane , thanks for sharing ,hugs for HUGGY
and have fun and enjoy
Have a wonderful week.
Take care, Meow
I hope you have a nice time with your friend and all your dreams come true
Get on out there and see what's what my friend; the Lord smiles on those who help themselves :)
Anyway, Dick, I think it's time. You'll always hold a special place in your heart for Annie, but allow the other soul mates to come into you life...they come for reasons. Perhaps it is to help heal...did you ever think of that?
Annie would be pretty darn upset if she knew that her passing over has caused you to lose out on something so special...the closeness and warmth of another human being. I see her giving you the thumbs up. And please she does not want you to feel guilty...she will see you again...in Heaven...;o)
Thanks for stopping by and commenting while I was gone.
(Though I think these things are a little more than luck...it does take a little charm and some food.)
I'm going to relax tonight but will try to get some photos set and make another post about my trip within the next day or two. Overall, it was a good trip, even though I'll be contributing $122 to Grant County. It seems I forgot to slow down from freeway speeds when I left I-90 & got onto a regular state highway. I guess the local Sheriff Dept. didn't approve of 74mph in a 60 zone. Ouch.
