The Faces of Angela

May 18, 2015 (by Jimmy) – For those of you who haven’t figured it out yet, I love my wife.  We tease each other; we enjoy each other’s company; we are simply just made for each other.  One of the things I love about my wife is her beautiful smile.  So what I want to do today is provide you with a little history of my wife and me while showing you her beautiful smile.  I call this “The Faces of Angela”.



I met Angela in early 2005 because she got on for three days. The last day she was scheduled to be on. I gave her my phone number and asked her to call me if she would like to talk more and maybe have supper sometime. A week or two later she called, and we’ve been together ever since.

As we were getting to know one another, one thing we decided to do was to have a travel vacation each year. With my work, I was getting airline miles and hotel points to allow us to do this rather inexpensively. So each year we had one main vacation. We had other vacations as work and budget allowed, but these are the vacations up to last year.

At the end of last year, we decided that we needed to be on vacation everyday, so we moved into the RV.  Everyday with this wonderful woman is an adventure in life.  We are currently planning for this year’s trip, but every day I get to spend with Angela is a great day.  If we stayed at home and didn’t go anywhere, I couldn’t be happier.  She is a joy to be with.  Now you have seen our travels Here’s what I see.


She likes to support local enterprises


She likes to go to festivals and community gatherings

She’s adventurous (riding a submarine in Hawaii)

She looks great in a in a sweet ride

She loves Animals

She can take my breath away from across the room.

I am a lucky man… Until later… Later…

    • We have only had one argument in the years we have been married. Which one is the lucky one. I’ve taken polls and win every time but she still thinks it’s her. She can be a silly woman…
