1987 - 1989  
Click on the thumbnail to see the large picture and comments...

If I thought the last few years had been busy, I had no idea what was ahead!  In August of 1987 Bryce and I moved yet again, to a house with a roommate.  At our housewarming party I met the next "Mr. Right" and he and I hit it off right off the bat.  Bonny moved back in for awhile that year as well. Our social life took on a different tone - the camping trips were now with friends in the AA program and we began to entertain a lot in our house again. Tom and I married 2 1/2 years later, in 1989 - with both my kids, his daughter, my future daughter-in-law and my grandson-in-law in the very first real wedding for me.  It was a big event with all our AA friends.  My Dad even came to give me away this time, big brother Larry and family came from San Diego, and the new husband Tom's parents travelled from Tulsa, Oklahoma.  (What is it that seems to bring me back to the midwest through the years?)

Lots of pictures here so I'll keep the comments to a minimum... click on the thumbnails to see comments on the pictures.

Our favorite places to camp... Big Sur and Yosemite


The Big Event - April 1989



Within a few weeks of our wedding, Bryce also married and then moved to Tulsa, OK with his new bride and her family.  Tom and I followed them to Tulsa when his company closed down as Tom's folks also lived in Tulsa - small world, hmm?  I continued to work for my California company via computer in Tulsa, exporting spare parts - the magic of computers before the Internet!  In the fall of 1989 Bryce, or Aaron as he now began to call himself, enlisted in the Navy.  We were also now close enough to Texas that my Dad and stepmom Alice were able to visit fairly often. Bonny married and I went back to California to do the flowers for her wedding and be Mom of the bride and visit old friends... And then Bonny came to Tulsa for Christmas!
