Summary:

title banner 

This is a prequel to It's All about You, a third installment to the series Love Bears All

Two local teens meet, as strangers and discover love ashore, thousands of miles away from home.  Their love was young, tender, and holding no expectations, but simply being.  A hidden truth denied them, anger delayed them, but fate intervenes and finds them nearly thirty years later.  Will they accept the pain of their past and forge a future or have time and change washed away the love they once knew?

Oh when I look back now
The summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life...

--*--

Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life...

--*--

Back in the summer of '69

Lyrics by Bryan Adams, from "Summer of ‘69"

Summary:

title banner  

What started out as a night on the town all by herself turned into an event she never could have planned!

"...My hair cut is short, sassy, and fierce just like me. I have a fresh pedi and mani, all cause I'm going out for a night on the town. Sure am. I bought myself a $115 ticket to see 'Dreamgirls Live' at the fabulous Fox Theatre...I'm worth it. In a dazzling red dress, some kick *ss stiletto sandals, and showing all the *ssholes just what they won't be getting. Dinner before, then cocktails at intermission, I'm going all out tonight because...I have a date with myself."

...and then, what did my wondering eyes see appear...

"I should have counted up the costs but instead I got lost in the seconds in the minutes in the hours...as we lay"

a short addition to the Series Love Bears All

It was an hour to show time.  With the trunk full of chafing pans lined with her love's labor lost inside each one, a fifteen minute drive to her destination seemed now like a hike across the Great Plains-impossible to meet in the time she was now allowed.

"What seems to be the problem ma'am?"  His blue eyes sparkled as he spoke.
