I’m listening to the NPR Ted Show on How We love.
As I listen, I feel the need to document how my wife and I came together.
I first met my wife at Philcon 1988 where she was Chairperson and, I was working operations. She apparently was smoking a cigarette and the smoke blew down the hall into operations. I came out and asked her to move further down the corridor.
I spoke with her again before the end of the convention, but didn’t see her again for 7 more years.
I saw my future wife at Boskone where I was working registration. When I saw her, I said “Hi Joyce”. She walked over and looked at my badge and said “Hi Peter”. We started talking. Three hours later we were still talking. They took away my job as I wasn’t doing it.
Over the winter we chatted online via email and ytalk.
We then got together at Disclave in Falls Church, Virginia. After that, we used the Amtrak Northeast corridor to visit with each other every two weeks. That shortly was superceeded by air travel using Nations Air.
We now have three kids who are in school, a young man age 18 in college, a young lady in high school age 15, and an 8 year old boy in elementary school.
Life is good.
God Bless America, please.
