Ralph J.'s Story

Life Since Greene... and days in a daze; A) Pointed nose south and aimed at my romantic Nervana: South Carolina. 1) Blinded by the aura of one Southern Belle; 2) and the allure of unbelievably long hunting seasons and days in the field hunting; 3) and fishing expeditions with no closed seasons; 4) and an immature yen for a relatively narscistic lifestyle B) Made mind up to devote my efforts at marrying the aforementioned young lady. 1) Began a cavalcade of labor intensive, low paying employment; 2) Fed my desires of... well feeding my desires does smack of aforementioned self-indulgence(s). Ah- is youth not blissfull (inextricable from her counterpart; ignorance). 3) The reality of my 1st desire under this caption met with a starker reality in that regards; my heart-throbs' FATHER.<<<Who was the spitting image of Y.A. Tittle, with the humor of Sam Huff/Ray Nitske.<~The former a NY Giants QB of staunch stature and the latter 2 middle linebackers with a tendancy to be injurious given half an excuse/reason. C) ...Expand for more
Led to my stabilization and betrothal. 1) Worked while wife finished her B.S. degree; as per promise to Father-in-law and fear of premature death. 2) Married in 1969. D) As we hurry a tad now (due to the eyes rolling into the back of your collective heads)... Excitedly welcomed our first child, daughter Dana in July of '71... and our other 7 children... 4 sons 4 daughters. The youngest is Sarah Abigail, 19, the last to leave the nest. We live in Florida on the S.W. Gulf Coast and Joyce is still teaching. I am a business owner since Hurricane Charley blew us apart in August of 2004. SImply stated it involves "techie" apparatus that cures "Sick Building Syndrome" buildings and solves indoor (facility) air quality issues... no more airborn and/or surface bacteria, viruses, mycotoxins, VOC's, odors - essentially all "germs." Both of us love the Lord and are awed by His Father's grace toward us; making worshipping and glorifying Him all the more our chief end in life. Would love to hear from all of you as so motivated...
