When I was 19 I had just graduated High School in Texas (Class Rank; 699 of 729 Graduates), graduated US Marine Bootcamp and went to my technical school in Millington, Tn. to become a Basic Avation Munitions Technician.
During the school I met a 16 yr old girl named Lisa Hood and fell in love. I would search out every phone booth around so I could stop and make a call whenever needed, which was often.
We would talk for so long…well, as long as my $10 roll of quarters would buy. ”Seventy five cents for the next 10 minutes.” I’m not sure I remember that price accurately.
Now, almost everyday on my drive home from work I use my hands free cell to call that same girl. I’m sometimes amazed at how much we talk.
No anniversary or anything, just thinking about how fast life is going by, how much has changed and is changing and how happy I am that I’m still talking to that same green-eyed girl from my teen years.
