“Someday” I whispered to myself and wondered what my future held.
I wondered why my parents could be so mean sometimes.
I wondered if I would ever have as many friends as my siblings.
I wondered if I would ever be able to dance in front of people.
I wondered if Prince Charming would ever show up and sweep me off my feet.
I love Rock N’Roll oldies because they hold memories of adolescent dreams.
I was ten in 1956 and Ron was 17. We never met until our paths star crossed in 1999.
I did not know that I would be 52 and Prince Charming would be 59 when he finally showed up.
I was on my first visit to Ron’s property in Kansas and we were in his workshop when he turned on his radio and Waltz Across Texas was playing. He pulled me into his arms and began to dance me across the dirty wooden floor. Thus began my introduction to old Nashville country music of the Texas Playboys, Ernie Tubbs, Marty Robbins, Roy Acuff, George and Tammy, etc.
At last, my wonder years had arrived………to an entirely different tune.
