I Married a Gypsy Man

1. us-kab Kathie, Gus and Natalie Christmas 2012

I married a gypsy man. I didn’t know that 36 years ago when we walked down the grassy path of our outdoor wedding. Perhaps I shouldn’t have used John Denver’s song, “Follow me where I go what I do and who I know…” as the song we walked off together as husband and wife, because I have been following him all over the country since then!
