~A Love Story ~

Hello Guys, Today I'm joining in with my Sweet Sis Chari at " Happy To Design" for repost Sunday...Please go by and see my sweet Sis..This is a post I did back in Sept 09
Bubba meets the girl of his dreams,His first cousin Patty Ann.

He takes her out for a special dinner, And shows her a good time at the Redneck Carnival at Diggerland.

The next day they spend together and Bubba shows off his water skiing skills.

Later that night, he romances her under Special mood lighting.

A week or so later, Bubba realizes This relationship is getting serious.He makes reservations for a Valentine's Day dinner. Patty Ann was So impressed with his thoughtfulness,

A month later he proposes to Patty Ann,

And he buys her a really purdy Engagement ring.

On the day of their wedding, he Tells her how much he loves her Just before the ceremony.

Then they're off to their Honeymoon Suite,

Where they open their wedding gifts. Their favorites ?

His was the New BBQ,

Hers was the Chandelier,
Bubba takes his new bride home.

He wants to tidy up the place, So he cuts the grass with his Riding mower.
Then Bubba decides to fix a few Things around the house.He makes the bathroom a little Nicer for his sweetie,

Repairs the mirror on her car,

And installs a new flat screen TV In the living room !

Bubba works hard at his job every day. He does the best that he can with Only a 5th grade education

7 months later, they send Out announcements. Bubba Jr. Has arrived !

Now they are a family. They are so proud of Jr. And marvel At how he gets cuter every day.

8 years later, Jr. Starts kindergarten. Jr. Loves riding on the Redneck School Bus.
After 3 years in kindergarten, Jr. Finally Graduates to first grade. To celebrate, Bubba takes Jr. And his Classmates on a field trip.

Shortly thereafter, Bubba and the family Move to a different state and settle into Their new DREAM HOME on the river,

Where they live happily ever after !

The End....

Oh, Gloria, thanks for the fun. I can wipe my eyes of laughing tears now. That Bubba sure is a keeper! 50 years is a long time to smoke. If it wasn't for Chantix I wouldn't be able to quit. But I already told my kids that when I'm 90, I'm taking it back up again. My grandpa lived to 90 smoking since he was a little boy. He passed away in his sleep with nothing wrong with him. If I ain't gone by then, I'm lighting up! lol. Hugs.

Well sweet friend, how are you doing? Did you guys do anything special this weekend? Ohh...got your sweet email with all the car pics. I forwarded it on to Russell. That was so sweet of Len to want to send Russ photos...male bonding!!! Ahhh...gotta love it! Hehe! We went up to Ft.Collins and spent the whole day...didn't get home till about 11pm. I was one pooped out gal but sure had fun! I found some goodies at my antique flea and I got to go to Hobby Lobby to. Starting to think about what I want to do for autumn. Anyway, I didn't get much done yesterday. Just enjoyed the day with Russell. That's why I'm just now getting around to my Sunday Favorites...I'm such a slacker! Hehe! Well honey, hope that you have a wonderful week!!! I'll talk with you later...
