See, the thing was, she lived 110 miles away. I figured, "What's the point?" But when Greg (her brother) called and said his ailing Datsun was threatening to cancel his long-awaited trip to see his beloved sister, the hands of fate reached out and slapped me upside 'da head. I eventually acquiesed and made the long journey down to Springfield to meet the so-called "sweetest girl on the planet."

Which brings us to where we are today...happy and busier than we ever dreamed with "the little big men".
