The “Nancy and Jim” Story
It began one Spring of "77
-Two teenagers at the prom.
Back in Dearborn Heights MI,
-That's where we both are from...
-After High School ended
Separate pathways we both chose.
-Jim was staying local....
And Nancy hit the road.
Many years of history
-Went on with just a glance,
Of each other at reunions
-Without even a dance.
But a common thread between them,
-Beth Henterly by name...
Discovered we both were single.-
After one phonecall, our lives changed.
So in '05 we began our long distance
-San Diego-Detroit romance.
It soon got quite expensive,
-So Nancy took a chance.
.....took a job at University of Michigan
got tenants for Mount Castle
and drove cross country, Gus and she
to explore happy ever after.
So here we are, Alter Bound
For all of you to see...
That's gift enough, your support and love
We have no material needs.
Our sadness lies in the separation factor.
Nancy's adult life and friends are West...
But Jim has children, job, and roots
In Michigan....where he serves them best.
So lots of airline trips we crave
So Nancy can keep her "traditions".
It's become so costly, for the 1st in 20 years.
She missed the "Rosarito/Ensenada" excursion.
If you insist on a gift...if you MUST,
Our request would simply be,
To help us make our "two lives" ONE-
By adding to the "commute Kitty".
