A Dork For All Seasons...

Hey all,
Well, Angela's fundraiser was a nice success and many thanks for the good wishes. She came out last Tuesday night to pick up the contributions I had for her silent auction and I ended up coralling her into doing a brief interview on the air. Of course she is not shy when it comes to talking to me but the beginning of the segment was vintage Angie and Mik...

Mik: So we welcome you to the show Ang. How ya doing?
Angela: Ohhhh, I'm okay I guess.
Mik: You weren't expecting me to do this, were you?

Angela: Uh, Nooooo I thought I was just picking up the prizes
Mik: Well, that's what you get for trusting me
Angela: Yeah, you'd think I'd know that by now
Mik: Gee, Ang, what are you trying to tell me?
Angela: I hate you!

At this point, the guests that were on the show all bust out laughing at me. I'm not sure of the final totals but then again, I'm just her brother so I don't count as important family... heh-heh... I'm sure I'll hear about it at a future family get together... hopefully like 20 years from now... you know what I mean?
A big "gee thanks guys" to all of you that are (with great intentions, I know) 'encouraging' the exchange of vows between me and my sweetie. She gets tickled every time she reads those comments. I know that down the road, I will be marrying her because she is the single greatest thing (this side of Heaven of course) to have ever happened to a dork like me. She is simply one warm, tender, caring, and incredible human being. I could not, cannot, nor would not, even remotely attempt to do any better than her. There is no one else that could ever occupy that spot for me. It's hers to toy and torture me with... I always tell her that even if I were stupid enough to give her any grief or back talk, she could just mow me down with her wheelchair and there's nothing I could do about it. But she loves me too... that's the icing on the cake. (sugar free of
Anyway, there are sooooooooooo many issues that are in the mix here. Distance, moving, job concerns, my family's health situations, the whole nine yards. After surveying multiple components and doing due diligence, it would make things very happy for the two of us emotionally, but very, very, very, difficult otherwise. I'm not going to rush cause I want to do things right. When it comes to the institution of marriage, I'm strictly old-school. I am a "one and done" guy. My best girl knows this and is understanding. She has the patience of a saint. I am doing things with my future with her in mind. She knows that also. She knows that she is stuck with me for better or worse (or as I like to say, 'warts and all') and she couldn't be happier. She just wishes that I were right there with her everyday. She misses me when I'm not there. I miss her too. I try to tell her "honey, be careful of what you wish for cause you might just get it..." But despite my best efforts to let her know what life with me would be like, she is still there for and loves me. And a good sign that she is in it for the long haul too... she hasn't mowed me down with her wheelchair yet!!!

Everything you have written over time about her has made it very obvious that she is as beautiful inside as she is outside.
Just be thankful she loves ya' and stop talking about your faults!(She surely knows them all by now)

Glad that the fund raiser went good! I think being on air would make me nervous also LOL. Have a Happy Thanksgiving with your gal pal.

From one dork to another- Mik, at least we've got the commitment down in writing, so I guess we can all learn the patience from your sweety :-) You will know when the time is right, but you made a lot of us happy by telling us!!!! I'm grinning like an idiot right now LOL. Anyway, I am happy you both found such sweet loving people! From past pictures you've posted, I just can't see her mowing you down- she's too sweet! God Bless you both and I hope you all have a Blessed Thanksgiving!!!!
