To your right we have Pam. She is a real
redhead, a mom, and lives in Texas with her husband, John.
On your left we have John.
He is bright, funny, quite talkative
and he is in love with his wife, Pam.
This story is about two people,
living in different parts of the country,
who met...fell in love...and began a life together.
In the Beginning...
It's always nice to have a little background information concerning the
people when you find your way to their website. Most of you already know something about
Pam and myself or you have had contact with our children Kira and
Still, we hope you'll find our site interesting and that after
visiting you will feel that you know us better.
Pam and I met on the internet. I was attending college in
South Carolina and
she was living in
One afternoon, while in the computer lab at the College of Charleston,
I was surfing the net. In the process I came across several sites
offering names of people looking for penpals and on one of those lists I picked out Pam's
name. I wrote to her first; then she replied back and quickly became good friends.
Early in 1997 I decided that I needed a change of location. I had been
going through the end of a marriage and I thought moving from Charleston would be the best
thing for me. I contacted Pam and talked about my future when I asked her what she thought
of my moving to the Houston area. She suggested that if I did she could help me get settled
and show me around, so in May I shipped everything I owned and headed to Texas to start my life over again.
Upon arriving in Houston Pam immediately started helping me with apartment hunting, job
searching and in showing me around the area. In the meanwhile we seemed to have been
spending quite a bit of time with each other and by late summer we were officially dating.
We found ourselves spending as much time as possible with together and it didn't take long
for me to realize how much I cared for her. In March of 1998, nearly a year after moving from
Charleston, I proposed to her. We were married in San Antonio
on July 6, 1998.

Be Kind to Animals
One of the factors which Pam and I have in common is our love for animals. A concern of
ours deals with the unfortunate and inhumane treatment many creatures have to face by the
hands of our fellow human beings. Pet owners have a responsibility, when bringing an
animal into their homes, to give their pet all it needs to live a healthy and happy life. I
mention this because so many times we have seen dogs and cats wandering freely on the
roads obviously without a human counterpart to supply its needs. This sad situation occurs too
many times to count and in such a light might we ask that the next time you take an animal
into your midst you do what is needed to guarantee a happy life for him and her. You get it
vacinated, neutered or spayed it and give it the attention it needs. If you can't do this you
should not have animals in your home. On this note, look what we found coming back from a recent vacation.
Tika Want a Cracker?
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Even with two kids, three dogs and a parakeet there
still appeared to be something missing from the fold. During a recent visit to a local pet store
Pam (under the nudging of Kira) decided it was time to add another family member.
Her name is Tika and she's an adorable three and a half month old conure. Since arriving
she has spent the majority of her time teaching us all sorts of tricks. Soon after arriving we
quickly learned when she expects dinner and I discovered that she prefers for me to wear a
particularly colorful bathrobe which she enjoys cuddling inside of prior to falling to sleep.

John and Pam Celebrate Two Years
As of today, July 6th 2000, Pam and I have been married two years. Because this is not my
website, but our's, I know that my wife would not want me to use this space to ramble on and
on about how wonderful I believe she is. I do feel that way. She brings such a rush to my
heart on a daily basis. What I am going to do here is to write briefly as to why I believe we
are still clicking so well together. I know that two years is not a long time, but in comparison
to other couples (even obviously happy couples) who have been together as long as or longer
then we I don't know of any two people who love spending time together. I don't know how
Pam does it because I don't believe I'm easy to be with all the time. Still she never shows me
any sign of not wanting to be around me. I, on the other hand, can easily understand why
cannot get enough of my wife. She fills in the gaps...smooths the edges...brings me down to
earth. She helps me feel that I can achieve things or that trying (even in the face of not
achieving) is necessary. I am so happy being with her...this is where I am meant to be and I
am happy and I am in love and I wish I could explain all this better.
