Over the Hump Again,,,,,,,,,

If anybody tries my meatloaf recipe,,please let me know if you like it. 

I told you i got that cook book when i was 17.  Here's the rest of the story. 

Back when i was in high school, for some ungodly reason, kids started getting married.  Yep,,that's what i said.  You could go over the border into OK and no questions asked, any age, any time.  After several had done that,,my bf and i decided to do it   too.  I was 16, he had just turned 17.  It was,,and OMG,, July 19,, I had spent a week in Austin with a friend and her sister, he worked there, and when they left to come here on Friday, we left and went to OK,,,got there about 2 AM, and you won't believe this,,,but,,a man was on a hammock in his yard, with a big sign,,saying Marriage Info!!!  He took us to the hospital for the blood tests, and when the court house opened at 8 that morning, he took us there and we got married.  Drove straight back here, and no one had missed us, and we didn't tell  til the following Jan.  Was something about his mom getting a SS check for him til he was 18.  Well, i went back to school, and to make a long story short, we told everybody in Jan,,,found out i was pregnant in Feb,,and graduated in May.  But,,, i got that cook book at my shower.

We were married for over 26 years, raised our kids, and ended it.  I married one other time,,for 2 1/2 years.  There were about a dozen girls that did that, and most of them lasted like i did..  I might have been the only one that finished school.

How's that for boring.  Guess in my subconscious,,,that date brought it up.  Numbers have always stuck in my mind. 

My son J called last nite, and i had gotten up and gone to the bathroom, or i wouldn't have heard the cell phone.  Trying not to laugh today about it,,but he said his dad had had a melt down,,,thrown out all the cats, and called him several times to tell him about it...when he finally saw that he had called, he found out and went there.  Said he couldn't find any of them.  There's a pet door into his utility room, so i told him they would go back later, they were hiding then.  And his dad would get over it by this morning...Haven't heard any more,,wondering now...lololoololol.  And he did tell me his back felt better than it had in weeks.   (I didn't blame him for throwing all those cats out,,,lol).  All but 2 are Js rescue cats.  He's had them fixed, takes excellent care of them, but,,,there's too many.  About a dozen.  Not all are kept in the house all the time, tho.

Yall tc, and
