I have been married two times. My first marriage was with a handsome young man, a surfer, a southern California sun-bleached blonde, with a big smile and lots of good humor and a warm and welcoming family. They happened to be from Alabama, and as my first husband and I got acquainted in our early twenties, we read it as a “sign” that our mothers were cheerleaders in rival high schools in Lower Alabama, and that our fathers were both from the Birmingham area and Air Force attorneys. Fate!

“In 1986 I came upon a cool-looking, beat-up old 1946 D-18 Martin Guitar in a pawn shop in Vallejo, California. I would go into that place now and again because I worked a few years earlier as a welder at Kaiser Steel shipyard in Vallejo. I asked the guy how much for the guitar. He said he didn’t know because it was a friend of his who was storing it there.
