My dear friend Gretchen, over at http://goodenough4now.blogspot.com/ wanted to know how I met Eddie, or as she put it, how I met my hunka-hunka burning love Eddie, lol Well, in the summer of 1984, I was working at an amusement park here in Chattanooga called Lake Winnepesaukah. I ran the fun house, woo hoo!! One day, this guy kept coming through, over and over. He would not stop talking to me, his name was Darrell. He asked me out, I said no thank you. He came to the park every other day, repeatedly asking me out, I always told him no. When the park closed for the winter, I thought that would be the end of Darrell. Wrong, unknown to me, he had followed me home from work one night. So, one day in November, a car pulls up in my driveway, and Darrell is ringing my doorbell. Help!! I open the door, he says hello Denise, how are you? I try to be as polite as I can be, by this time I have spotted a hunk in the car. I say, who is that in the car, your brother? He says no, that is my best friend Eddie. Darrell did not have a car, so dear Eddie had drove him to see me. I endured a couple of hours of talking outside with Darrell, and Eddie. Well, let me tell you, no joke, it was love at first sight. I fell head over heels for Eddie. Darrell had to go, lol Truly, I am thankful for Darrell, if not for him, I would never have met Eddie. Eddie and I met in November of 1984, he asked me to marry him in December of 1984, we got married on April 6 1985. This April, we will celebrate 23 years of marriage. I thank God everyday for bringing us together. That is how I met my hunka hunka burning love!!
