I came to Chicago just about 1 year ago for a 4 to 6 month contract. Yes, I can count and no, this isn't a plot to an episode of Gilligan's Island.
I could have left before now, but I met Elva and fell in love with her. I've asked her to marry me and we're planning a wedding for next summer.
She is wonderful and there is nowhere I would rather be than sitting next to her, feeling her lean against me and holding her hand.
I have moved about an hour south so I can be closer to her. I have a nice little apartment in view of the railroad tracks. "How often does the train go by?" "So often you won't even notice it.".
The 4 to 6 month contract has become a full time job and I am working on selling my house in Mississippi.
I love Elva so much that I am going to live where there is winter again.
