It's almost unbelievable

Just time for a quick post to mention a few things happening in my world. First off, I am getting married in 4 days!! to a fellow I have been dancing with since last September.

On June 6th, Gary was seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident. I have been heavily involved in getting him healed and going to all kinds of appointments. The accident story is told in this link. The article is accurate, except identifying Gary as Jerry.

Gary is the injured motorcyclist, not the naked truck surfer!

And here is a photo of us hiking last week.

The unbelievable part about our upcoming marriage is all the serendipitous events that brought us together. I really wish I had the time to tell you!!

Wow. Congrats. That's unbelievable alright.
I never ceases to amaze me how quickly women hook up again, whereas if a guy loses a spouse it usually takes a while. If at all, lol.

Nice pic, Beth.

Congratulations. I know etiquette says I should congratulate the man not the wife but hey, congrats to both of you.

How great for you!

And I guess if you are going to be in a wreck, at least having a story of a naked truck surfer is a consolation prize!

Oh, Beth! I'm so happy for you and I understand how wonderful it can be to find love again! And...you found a motorcycle man, too. Aren't they wonderful?!

How wonderful to fill that new house of yours with love!!!

Best, best, best, best wishes to both of you.

Beth, I join Katie, and now you, in the celebration of finding love again, the second time around. I have chills thinking about how life can actually start over after we were all sure love would never come again. My very best wishes for this new chapter in your life!
