PEGGY AND HER FIRST HUSBAND

 

 

PEGGY WAS MARRIED TO A NAVY GUY†††† WE WILL CALL HIM LOU ďBECAUSE THAT WAS HIS NAME.

 

WHEN ALVIN PASSED AWAY PEGGYAND LOU WAS IN BARBADOS AND HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIER MARRIAGE. PEGGY CAME HOME TO BE WITH HER MOTHER AND AT THE SAME TIME. FILE PAPERS TO DIVORCE LOU.

 

PAPERS WAS FILED AND A LITTLE TIME LATER PEGGY AND I STARTED TO DATE (WHEN SHE WASNíT PISSED AT ME)

 

ONE AFTERNOON PEGGY AND I HAD BEEN TO THE BEACH AND GOT TO HER APARTMENT JUST ABOUT DARK.

THE PHONE RANG AND IT WAS AN OLD BOYFRIEND AND STILL FRIEND OF PEGGYíS HOME ON LEAVE FROM THE ARMY.†††† HE WANTED TO COME BY.†† PEGGY ASKED ME IF I MINDED AND I TOLD HER TO TELL HIM TO STOP ON BY.

PEGGY WENT TO TAKE A SHOWER ďBY HERSELFĒ AND I PROPED MY FEET UP TO WATCH TV.

I HEARD SOMEONE PULL UP OUTSIDE AND WENT TO LOOK.OH ITíS THE ARMY FRIEND I THOUGH††† THEN I THOUGHWHY IS HE GETTING OUT OF A TAXI††††† MY NEXT THOUGHT WAS WHY IS A ARMY GUY WEARING A NAVY UNIFORM.

BY THIS TIME HE WAS EYE TO EYE WITH ME AND I SAID HI LOU.††† PEGGY CAME OUT OF THE SHOWER WITH A TOWEL AROUND HER†††† I SAT BACK DOWN ON THE COUCH AND WATCHED ONE OF THE DAMNEST FIGHTS I HAD EVER SEEN AND DID NOT EVEN HAVE THE TV ON.

END RESULT††††††† LOU STORMED OUT

 

LOU STAYED AT RUTHS HOUSE†††† PEGGY AT HER APARTMENT†† AND ME AT MY MOTHERíS.

LOU HAD GUNS AND THE WORD WAS HE WAS AFTER ME†† WELL I HAD A GUN ALSO.†† AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS OF MORE OR LESS HIDING†††† I CALLED LOU AND TOLD HIM††† I WOULD BE IN HIS DRIVEWAY IN TEN MINUTES AND HE COULD EITHER COME OUT SHOOTINGOR WE COULD GO GET A BEER†††† HIS CHOSE

WELL TEN MINUTES LATER I HIT HIS OR RUTHS DRIVEWAYMY GUN IN HAND††††††† OUT COMES LOU†††† A GUN IN BOTH HANDS†††††† I SAID OKWHATíS IT GOING TO BE†††† AND AFTER WHAT SEEMED FOR HOURS BY WAS ONLY SECOUNDS A MINUTE AT THE MOST††††† LOU SAID†† DAMN LETíSGO GET A BEER.††† HE TOSSED HIS GUNS ON THE FRONT SEAT OF MY CAR AND I LAID MINE DOWN†††††† WE HEADED OUT DRINKING AND SHOOTING POOL.

PEGGY WAS WORKING AT A DRYCLEANERS AND WORRIED TO DEATH ABOUT BOTH OF US.†††† WE DRUNK ON OUR BUTT DECIDED TO STOP BY AND SEE HER.††† SHE WAS SURPRISED

I STILL DONíT UNDERSTAND WOMEN

THE PROBLEM WITH GUNS WAS SOLVED†† BUT

 

SHE WAS PISSED AT ME AGAIN

 

A COUPLE OF DAYS WENT BY†† PEGGY TOLD ME SHE AND LOU WAS TRYING TO WORK THINGS OUT. THIS WAS BAD FOR ME EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS TRYING TO SAVE A MARRIAGE LOU EVEN BOUGHT HER ANEW CHEY CONVERTIBALE

 

I PICKED LOU UP AGAIN††† HAD A FEW BEERS AND TOLD HIM I HAD A GIRL FOR HIM††††††† I WOULD FIX HIM UP†† GET ME A GIRL AND WE COULD DOUBLE DATE

I THEN CALLED PEGGY AND ASKED HER OUT SO WE COULD TALK.††† LOU DIDNíT KNOW WHO MY DATE WAS AND PEGGY DIDNíT KNOW IT WAS A DATE

I PICKED UP LOUíS DATE††††† HE LIKED HER AND THEY SETTLED INTO THE BACKSEAT†††††††† PEGGY GOT INTO THE CAR AND I SAID I THOUGHT WE WOULD DOUBLE DATE

 

THIS ENDED THE TALKS ABOUT THEM GETTING BACK TOGETHER†††††† WE HAD FUN THAT NIGHT††† ALTHOUGH I AM NOT REALLY SURE IF PEGGY DID OR NOT

PEGGY GAVE THE CHEVY BACK

 

LOU AND I PARTED AS FRIENDS†††† HE EVEN GAVE ME A TAPE RECORDER THAT I WANTED††† AS HE WENT BACK TO BARBADOS
