Love Note

Love Note

My Dearest Love:

Sitting here during these quiet morning hours remembering summer evening with you. Driving out into the cool country breeze along river roads. Windows wide open to catch every breeze the cool river waters had to offer. Radio playing as loud as it would go, we sing along like two drunks laughing at every word. We would roll along in your old Ford Falcon - the one you loved so much. Staggering at every intersection to decide which way to go - we may not have known where we were at but we were never lost. Sometimes it was just you and me - sometime we would take all the kids. I remember how much you loved to explore and learn new roads. I remember how you always put me behind the wheel where I thought I wanted to be - but now when I look back I think you might have gotten over on me. Your hands and arms were always free to wrap around me - you didn't have to watch the road so you could watch me and kiss me as you pleased, maybe it was I who got over on you <3 as all I had to do was smile and receive all your loving. Another summer is drawing near and I've begun daydreaming once again of river roads with your arms wrapped around me and kisses that never end. I love you more with each passing day.

I'll always Love You
Forever & Ever
Your Steve

My love
Sitting here - listening to the thunder - feeling you next to me, cuddling while we watch the brilliant flashes and feel the thunder reverberate through our bodies. The rain pours down - we’d have our laps full of dogs - they don’t like this weather at all!
Ahhhh - the Falcon - lol - remember providing it with tires? Lol - whatever was wrong with the front end sure made it chew through the tires. Fortunate that we knew where the state cars parked...
I’m restless today/tonight - changed allergy medicines again and I feel like I’m wired. Pharmacist said that I have to switch off every so often - trick my body - that’s what will make the stuff work. If I take nothing, my nose runs constantly - plus sinus drip - <sigh>. This getting old isn’t for the weak!
Amber just texted - to see if I need to come up there. This is a mobile home - and earlier forecasts talked about chance of tornadoes. Her house is a house - not a mobile - so a little safer. Last week-end Jason’s brother’s place got hit. Missed the house, but took out the outbuildings. He was in the pole barn, getting ready to milk when the tornado hit. All he could do was lie flat down. Fortunately he wasn’t hurt but he lost several cows that had come in to be milked. They’re about 1 1/2 hours from us - maybe a little less.
When I see new posts from you, I always check for my love note first - then read your poems - I love them.
All for now - want to try to sleep - supposed to be kinda calm until around 5AM - then more thunderstorms
We can curl up in here - on the floor - so the doggies can stay in too. The bed is too tall for them so they’re stuck :)
I love you far more than you can imagine - than you can know. I’m always gonna love you - just as I always have.
Good night. Sweet dreams. Until next time, I am your
