Rocky Mountain Love

Throw Back Weekend Memories

 

Just thinking about how sweet times were. We spent quality time whenever together. In retrospect, loving relationships are usually not so positive as ours was.

Sure times were tough but together it didn’t seem to mind us. Both extroverts, we didn’t lose sight and one-on-one connection we had. There were so many things to enjoy. Even the mundane was joyful.

What made my last love wonderful is that we both loved God. With none of my past romantic relationships was this so true. Sundays we were happy to explore different Christian worship and Bible study services together.

Given our common interests and times we spent, it is hard to believe we have not seen or spoken for more than a year.  The miles and circumstances have kept us apart.

I thought a reunion was iniment after she got out of prison. I was thinking that she wanted to build back her self-esteem before living together as we had planned. I was willing to wait.

Now we have missed spending a Christmas, birthdays, and Mothers’ Day together. We still have our memories when meeting in the Rocky Mountains. Thus my hope has waned. Yet my love remains.

My last love. I understand how other people who might have spent decades married cannot form another loving relationship. While never married I feel like I was fully committed.

What a “sap”. I still carry around the letters, the last ones written last September 2015, she sent me from prison in Northern Nevada.

Fortunately, she was released early. She never should have been incarcerated but perhaps you have seen how determined insurance company lawyers can be. Her crime was to take her elderly mother’s car, without asking permission, across state lines into California and totaling the sedan. Mom was too upset to halt the legal proceedings. I have seven month of love letters sent from prison to prove it. A good prisoner she was. Quickly becoming a trustee helping to prepare meals for about 55 fellow prisoners.

When you read this, perhaps God, you will urge her to get in touch with me, soon.

D. A. D.’s Status Report on the Screenplay “The Last Resort” and Motivated to Give Up Casino Life for Lent (40 Days)

 and Dateline: 2-20-2015

County of Douglas, Northern Nevada

fyi, I’m still sick as a dog

  • my joints and muscles feel like I got beat up by two old ladies.
  • My stomach is spasming and cramping after this feta cheese + spinach stuffed pig  tenderloin lunch.

I ate a warm noon meal at the Sr. center… just finishing up…

and nope, I am not playing bingo with the rest of the folks.

Two (2) casinos 86’ed me for the day… I guess I will give up casino life for this Lenten Season.

Facts:

Thanks to Mr. James of the C.O.D. Garage and Casino on 3595 Esmeralda Avenue in historic downtown Minden for throwing me out twice (4:00 a.m. and 7:15 a.m.). Mr. J. had someone cash-out my electronic-computer-generated winnings ticket. It was for $19.75. The dude came back with $14.75. I did not notice the missing Lincoln. The messenger was given 3 authentic sort-of-silver quarters as a tip. This casino beat me by $6.00.

The other casino had Mr. Pete eject me from the hotel lobby outside the business center – this center is about the size of two linen closets with two PCs, no office supplies, an aged printer, and no Microsoft software loaded on it.  I keep telling myself that the BDI is a resort, not a four star hotel, motor lodge, and camper park. At this casino, I cashed-out my computer-generated winnings ticket for $14.25. Go figure… I tipped both bartenders 4 silver-clad or copper sandwiched US quarters. Thus, this casino beat me by $8.25.

Well, at least the BDI gave me two shots of some sort of Kahlua-flavored liquer for breakfast.

Still cannot get green handing suitcase from the Holiday Lodge, but called the US Marshals office and the state (Nevada) Attorney’s Oriface.  Ms. Jackie is the owner who split town yesterday.

I missed the train from Reno this morning.

There is always another train at the same time the following day.

Aloha.
