Old boyfriends and a winner!

She looks nothing like me but what a day I've had!  Today is a day of memories and memorials where do boyfriends come into the equation?  I had a dream last night about guys and boyfriends in my life none of which were in the military.  Then today Mom was watching 'Cops' on TV and a guy reminded me of my idol on the department.  He was my protector, my co-heart, partner (not really) but since I was the only woman on patrol on the night shift he was always the first to arrival after me on a call.  He had a southern accent and if someone tried to pull one over on him he'd say 'My mama did'nt raise no fool, but she did raise me in South by God Carolina!'  I just adored him and I'll tell you in the 23 years we were together working side by side he'd tick alot of people and officers off but we were always confidants.  I retired and I've was told 3 weeks later Larry walked into personnel and retired, within 3 weeks he sold his house and he moved to the midwest.  And before you all ask, yes he was married and his wife was the spittin image of me cause I met her several times.   And this story has what to do with cardmaking?????  Enjoy the card Micki gave me the image and I just colored it with Copics and mounted it on Making Memories Cosmopolitan, SU  so saffron and whisper white and Michael's dollar ribbon.
The lucky winner is: Max:86   Result: 16

I meant to comment earlier, instead I bookmarked it. What a story, it brought a smile to my face. It's fun to reminisce. I love that sentiment which I've been reciting to myself for a couple of weeks now. your card is adorable, just love it.
