I've been married to my husband since Leap Day 1992. We met at Clark AB, Republic of the Philippines, at the terminal when we were both trying to get home on leave. Once we got back to Clark, it took a year before we started dating. We told all our friends that we weren't serious about one another. They told us we were. 4 years later, we found out they were right. Our food tastes couldn't have been more different. I grew up with "bland" foods since my mother never had been exposed to spicy foods. He loved HEAT. Slowly we've grown more alike in our food tastes but the day he ate a brussel sprout in front of me nearly ended our relationship. *laugh* He's retired from the Air Force, I got out after 4 years in, so we're both civilian again. We are the parents of 3 wonderful girls -- all dogs. In my spare time I knit and spin. I also make candles and soap.
