Roni Gilbert Oceanside Pier 1990
I met Roni at SEARS in 1986 - She was a DISCOVER Operations Manager
I had never met a more wonderful woman - she was a gift; from God
I was 35 years old. I had arrived with $100.00 on an Amtrak. For the first three months in Oceanside, CA my residence was on Pacific Street, near Buccaneer Beach. Very little has changed on the beach, today is September 19, 2014.
The first day I went to work at SEARS, Roni told them to hire me. In a few months, I had never been so happy in my life. In forty days she explained everything a person should know about how to win a woman. The job began about January or February. I had arrived in November. About Sept 19, 1986 the most important day in my life, I had made a great girlfriend. She was the most intelligent woman ever in my life. She had me read a book in the library. It indicated, she had a lover, a husband, and a boyfriend. I was confused. She laughed, and said that is you. Then she had me read Romeo and Juliet. I kept having her say, read page one. I did not understand. Read page one, over and over? She laughed with her naturally lusty self and said, "Deny your Father, Deny his name".
