lAST WEEK, CARLY WAS READY FOR THE BIG PARTY. JANA SPENT A HALF AN HOUR PUTTING MAKE-UP ON CARLY’S PRETTY FACE aT THE LAST MINUTE, SHE GAVE CARLY HER SABLE JACKET to keep her warm and off she went. What a great friend. Six pm, chimes rang out. Mr.Black tie arrived. He almost knocked her over and gasped in delight . Marty stepped in the entrance hall, planted a kiss on her cheek. “You are lovely.” Carly thought he was lovely too. She explained that her son in law, Micheal gave them a phone number just in case her daughter has an emergency because Julie was very pregnant with twins and Patti Rea is home with a sitter. Mike would call if there is any problem. Meanwhile they danced, he introduced Carly and they ordered dinner. A waiter appeared at Marty’s side and him a note. Carly began to shake. Marty spoke to the illustrious group. “We have a family emergence. Carly’s daughter is in labor and we must leave. ” Carly, in the car, realized Marty had said, We have an emergency. We must run. Excuse us. “Hey you”, Carly said, “you are one terrific man. I didn’t expect you to leave the party just for me.”Martin didn’t say aw chucks m’am or anything foolish. He said, “I’d do anything for you, Carly Joy.”Sally, the young sitter, jumped up. She had a date and had to run. Marty was game, dressed in formal wear, we headed to the nursery for the promised treat. Carly was sure this wasn’t quite what he had in mind at the beginning of the evening. Patti said “Peek a Boo.” She pointed to Marty and said “Cycle Man.” She clapped her hands. “Cycle Man read Goodnight Moon, ‘kay?” wewriwa://wewriwa://one more time.com

Last week , Carly said good by to Martin who smiled and said he’d pick her up in two weeks. Then she rushed to the phone to call Jana who happened to be in the bathtub with her husband. “What kind of a dress shall I wear to the ball? asked Cinderella of the fairy Godmother. Jana called, “I was in tub, luxuriating in bubbles with Greg. He’s not happy so talk fast.” “Martin came to my door complete with flowers, with white orchids no less and asked me to attend the ball with him.” “Hooray! What did the dogs do?” “Dogs?” Jana, he didn’t talk to the dogs. Oh, I get it. Uh Sarge kind of growled low and Jesse girl sat very stiff and quivered. Oh Jana please don’t squeeze the fun out of this.” “I’m not. Uh maybe its an omen or maybe your pets are being over-protective . Just watch out for cycle man. Let’s talk about your dress later.”I’ll do some research on the height of fashion and we’ll go for it without the big bucks.” “Cycle man?” That’s what Patti Rae called him, right? Hey Greg says the water is losing heat. I don’t want to lose his. Good Going, Carly. ” “Carly turned on the radio and heard, :Dancing in the Dark, a song she loved. Carly held up white orchids and danced. She knew Dance lessons were needed since she wanted to be at the top of her game.

Last week, Carly rushed to dress up as her new date rang the bell. The first thing he said was, “May I escort you to the Mayor’s charity Ball?:”Yes,” she said. Can you stay a while?” He nodded as she led Marty to her favorite room where spirits and memories live.Flames crackled as they entered the the large cozy room. “Cozy,” he said. “Hungry?” Carly said. “With a wicked smile, ” he said, “Not for food.” Now Carly knew what direction he was going in and she thought “Not This Time.”Men like to talk about themselves.” “Tell me about yourselve, Marty. How did you come to be an architect and your relationship with the Major. I’d like to know all about you.: His cell phone rang and he said, “Excuse me.” A log tipped over and needed adjustment. When Carly turned around, he was very close to kiss.Heat of the fire at Carly ‘s back, heat of Marty at her front, she was like toasting a marshmallo, melting on the outside, heat of Martin on the inside. It turned out to be an end. Martin said, “Sorry I have to leave. The Mayor called a quick conference. The Ball is in two weeks. I’ll pick you up at six o’clock.” “White orchids, a high society ball, my first love is a spirit, my next true love is a priest gone forever, Martin Ambrose is what?

Last week, Carly had a date with her new friend, Martin Ambrose coming up since he has invited her to the Mayors’s charity Ball. Carly led Marty to her favorite room in the house where spirits and memories live. “Cozy, ” Marty said. Carly sat down at the other end of the couch , stared into the fire for answers, wondering where this visit would take them. “Are you hungry?” Carly asked. With a wicked smile, he said, “Not for food.” Now she knew what direction he had in mind and Carly thought, Guess again, handsome, not so soon. As she added a log for adjustment and felt so close to Marty on this chilly night but when she turned around he was close enough to kiss. Heat of the fire at her back, heat of Marty at her front, Carly felt as if she was a toasting marshmallow, melting on the inside-almost crispy on the sides-ripe for munching, it was a start. But no. It turned out to be an end when Marty said, :Sorry, I have to leave. The Mayor called a quick meeting.” http://wewriwa://.com

Last week, Carly and best friend Jana had ideas regarding Carly’s friend Martin and the way he always ran when the Mayor of Chicago called. Marty handed Carly a bouquet of White Orchids, said he’d pick her up in two weeks and he left; after all, he was taking her to The Ball. Carly called Jana; “What kind of a dress shall I wear to the ball? Martin came to my door complete with flowers and then he left.””Hooray and what did the dogs do?””Dogs? Jana, he didn’t ask the dogs, oh I get it; Sarge kind of growled low and Jesse-girl sat very stiff and quivered; oh Jana,please don’t squeeze the fun out of this.” Maybe it’s an omen or maybe your pets are being over-protective. Just watch out for cycle man and lets talk about your dress later because I’ll do some research on the height of fashion and we’ll go for it without the huge bucks. “Cycle man?”That’s what Patti Rea called him, right?Hey, Greg says the water is losing some heat and I don’t want him to lose his. Good going, Carly.” http://wewriwa://.com

Last week, between Carly and friend Jana, they talked about Carly’s situation with Marty and what to do. “First of all,”Carly said,” I keep thinking the heater is broken but no one else complained and on some level, I think Bob is warning me away and now I believe Bob and I should let go of each other so I can pursue a life. “Jana, the ball’s in your court so what’s your take on my situation.” Those eyes of hers gazed deep inside me. Shaking her head, she said, “I have to ask a few questions at this point. DDid you have unfinished business with Bob when he died; anything at all that wasn’t reconciled between you? I knew hoe close you two always were but somewhere in my memory of the time he had the first heart attack until you lost him, something went wrong.” Chills crept over me as if my feet were in a pail of ice water. I played “remember when” with Jana back to what I called as the bad time when Bob started listening to his heart and forgot about me. We lost touch with each other until the final touch when he was gone. Jana had an idea when she said,” Have you ever thought about moving out of this house, maybe selling it to Julie and Michael because this house will accommodate three small kids. “Oh my god, I could live nearby but not live here-oh Jana, you are a genius, but not a word, client privilege. Jana said, “You’re not my client.” “Do you have a dollar in your handbag?” Jana fished in her wallet, pulled out a dollar bill and handed it to me, and of course I gave it back. “Now you’re my lawyer.” Hey, stay over since the roads are icy and go home in the morning. Deal?” Jana laughed, sipped some wine and said “Deal” http://wewriwa://.com
