I love my wife dearly, but there’s just this one thing I can’t stand about her. It’s her incessant need for… You don’t think I’m that stupid do you? I’d be killed, murdered, whatever fit into her wild imagination — and that wouldn’t fit into the plan…
How We Met
It was a cold and stormy night. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. I rushed to see who it could be at this ungodly hour. Alas, it was sweet Hector. Sweet, sweet Hector, arrived with my toast…..er…let me start this again…
How We Met…For Real This Time
Once upon a time in a galaxy not so far away there was a book store chain named Crown Books (Crown Books has since withered to a lifeless corpse and the remaining stores have been converted or bought out by Books-A-Million). To make a horribly long story short, I was stalked and forced into marriage so that I could retain my US citizenship (even though I was born in the US–government plot I was told, but I am beginning to suspect foul play).
When Did You Get Married Citizen Rubschlager?
Angie and I were married on a glorious day in May. May 22, 1999 to be precise. We wanted a few wonderful months together before the world ended on December 31, 1999. Unfortunately, the world didn’t end and our marriage is actually Y2k compliant.
Tell Us About This “Marriage” Day
It was a cold and stormy night… er… sorry again. We joined our souls at Prince of Peace Lutheran church in Palatine. Shortly there after we celebrated our union at Chateau Rand in DesPlains. Stax-O-Wax was the presiding music masters. I can not recommend them enough.
Where We Live
When we first were married we lived in a wonderful condo in Vernon Hills, IL. In hindsight we were very lucky to be able to afford that place, and the layout was marvelous. After a couple of years we moved from the condo to a town home in Mundelein, IL. The town home was a whopping four blocks from our condo. Not such a big move, but we were happy with the area. Then in 2006 we up and moved from IL to OR. We didn’t have a good reason to move except that we like it here. Through all of those moves Angie has been patient and supportive.
