Old boyfriend update:
Ok so one more thing - Debbie mentioned about when we were kayaking and I was chatting up the Maine-ah guy on the river and I was telling my daughter about how not to date a guy like that - who was so typical Mainer dude - and how he was like my first boyfriend, David. And I gotta say, I'm still friends with David despite his Maine-ah guy tendencies - I still like him and love him as a person, but I think of him more as a long lost brother or something rather than an old romantic thing - since I've known him most of my life - 30 years now - since I was 14! And he lost his parents early, and his 19 year old son died suddenly and tragically, and he went to my Dad's funeral when I couldn't - so I have a tender spot for him since he's had a hard life. And my husband knows him and has for a long time and understands the whole dynamic. So its all kosher.
Here's the kicker.
Just last week: My sister wanted to come down to Florida and see Tom Petty in September - and - the very day after she told me about that - David facebook messaged me to see if I wanted to use any of his luxury box seats at the Tampa Bay Forum - and he hooked us up with 4 tickets to Tom Petty. No kidding.
Not all old boyfriends are bad. Even if they do have a tendency to be a bit idiotic - like that guy on the river.
