you ever seen a white wedding dress with red polka-dots?
Or a groom dressed in Levis and tuxedo?
We even made the Front Page!
(cont from Front Page) "This is for real Dad. Say yes" was written on a note given to Yeager while his sons haphazardly dressed their father in a white tuxedo jacket and red bow tie. "I've never done anything quite like this," the Rev. John Southwick told the couple before performing the ceremony. "I've done a lot of weddings in the last 12 or 13 years, but I was concerned this one would be my last." After Southwick voiced his concerns, the groom quipped: "But it's not over yet reverend."
If you've read Forever Friends, you know that Bob and I met at a Toastmasters International meeting. Ours was truly love at first sight. Well, almost at 'first' sight.
Bob says he was attracted to me long before I knew him. That's because we were not in the same Toastmasters group. He was in a singles group with my oldest son, Bill, and my group was maritally mixed. After the weekly meeting, Bob, Bill and some of their friends would go for coffee. Bob and Bill became very good friends. Because I'd had my own business for many years, every time Bob would talk about his desire to start a business, Bill would say to him, "Oh you should meet my Mom!"
Well, that's exactly what happened. Bob and I finally met and a year later we formed a business together; Yeager & Sons Inc. Two years later, we were married. And 20 years later, we are still madly in love.

Being a business owner is not always as glamorous as it's depicted. Owning a business is like having another child - only this one is totally dependent upon you for its growth and well-being. It can't tell you where it hurts when things aren't going well. All you can do is give it lots of love and nuturing, monitor its report cards and pray to God for guidance. Wow! It really IS like a big kid!
After seven years, Bob and I were finally able to take a long, well-deserved vacation. Of course, we took CleoCATra with us. We traveled over 10,000 miles in four months by motorhome. We visited with family and friends whom we'd sorely neglected and toured 32 states along the way. This was one of our day trips to New York City.
