RAMBLING VINES

RAMBLING VINES

While most people have been battling mosquitoes, I’ve been carrying on a secret war with wasps. All of a sudden I had wasps all over the house. . .every time I went in home there they would be—in the living room, bedroom, kitchen, back porch, no place was safe. I’m not allergic to wasps, but I didn’t like the prospects of them crawling around on me at night. One day I finally got enough. I took a fly swatter and a dust cloth and I went over every inch of the house, behind pictures and curtains, underneath chairs. No wasp nests.

I “met” my husband by chance on the internet in a chat room for the 30-40 crowd. We made each other laugh. Soon we graduated to phone calls and two years later we decided to meet in person. If anyone ever tells you that you can’t fall in love over written words or phone calls they’re wrong. Some of the greatest love stories in history began with letter writing. Bobby hails from the Huntington, West Virginia/Ohio area. He moved three months later and fell in love with Corning; his Mayberry. We were married within two months wearing Braves jerseys with Justice Dennis Haines officiating. Our wedding was baseball themed. Guests wore the jerseys of their choice. A baseball bat was our guest book with blue ink for American League signatures and black ink for National League. I carried my bouquet inside a ball glove. My four-year old niece, Becca threw soft baseballs instead of flower petals as she walked down the aisle.

I don’t know which costs the most and causes the most embarrassment - - raising kids or keeping an old car running. I tell you Ole Blue has really been showing out.
