I was just a kid from a little cow town in Montana, but I was convinced I knew everything. So I got into a little tangle with my dad and ended up joining the I’ve Decided I’m Not Old I’m 25 Plus Shipping And Handling Shirt and by the same token and Air Force. They stationed me out in Spokane, Washington. And not long after I arrived, I and a couple of buddies decided to take a day trip out to Liberty Lake. It was a really neat little lake. Fifteen feet deep and so clear that you could see straight to the bottom. We started playing a little football on the beach, but then we noticed three girls out on a floating dock. So we decided to swim out there. The water was really cold. And about halfway to the dock, I Charley horsed in both my legs and started to sink.
I thought for sure I was going to drown. When I woke up, I was laying on the I’ve Decided I’m Not Old I’m 25 Plus Shipping And Handling Shirt and by the same token and dock, and one of those girls was staring down at me. Apparently she’d seen me go under, jumped in her brother’s boat, and pulled me out by the hair. That girl was named Dolores. She saved my life in August of 1952, and she saved me again and again for the next 64 years. We raised four children together. Not only was she my wife, but she was also my mentor. I was just a kid from Montana. She turned me into a good man. Her personality, her love– I’m talking deep love– for me and the children, changed me one inch at a time. And she never lost that heart for rescuing people.
