Boy am I dumb. I have been on WV for over a year and did not know about this comment thread. I am sorry for not answering you earlier. Yes we are close. I live a block form the Puyallup Fair grounds so if you ever want to go to the fair let me know and you will get free parking.
I am sorry about your loss. That is one thing we all have in common is that when our love dies our heart aches.
I am doing OK. It has been 14 months since my wife died. I found a lady down in Bend, OR that I am dating and getting to know. LOL I have to drive 6 hours to take her out to dinner. Needless to say when I go down there it is usually for a week. I guess that is one of the advantages to being retired.
I hope you are doing well. If you ever come down this way let me know and maybe we can do lunch or at least a soda.
Sorry it didn't work out to meet this time...ended up spending an hour and a half to travel 1 mile to the ferry (gay pride parade was going on), so since I didn't know when we would end at the conference and where I'd be going, I might have made it by dinner time (lol).
This grief thing sucks. I now that you and Elizabeth were totally and completely in love (as were Jane and Bunny and Sally and I). None of us were prepared to lose our beloveds. Add the "invisibility" or denial or whatever of lesbian love and it compounds it.
Anyway, I know that Bunny is your "widow match" and she will most likely keep in touch , but I am closer.
A hug to comfort your broken heart for a tiny second of reprieve... Connie
