Happy 64th Birthday to Karen Lee!




Saturday, October 11, 2014

On October 13—two days from now, on Monday—my first wife, Karen Lee Shinn Warn (those are just the names I know her by) will celebrate her 64th birthday. Wherever she is and however her life turned out in the years since we last spoke after my second divorce in 1983, she will always remain my first and forever love since the first night we met on a hot summer Sunday night high school dance outside Toledo on July 24, 1966.
After my #2 Suzan (she changed the “s’ to a “z” for good luck) returned to Toronto from our home in Los Angeles due to the flame out of our one year marriage which began so promisingly (!!!) at 5am on the Strip in Vegas at the Candlelight Wedding Chapel next to the Riviera, I decided that I wanted to see Karen (by then calling herself LEE, her middle name, which I had suggested in the 70s after listening to her constant complaining that KAREN sounded like a rock) and she was open to the idea on the phone so I drove from LA to SF with my dog Cooper  though my vivid memory of that day remains her obviously feeling like she made a mistake agreeing to have lunch. It was awkward for us both, enough to halt further communication since that day. I still often think about her but since she has never reached out I must assume she has no interest in sharing war stories.
Anyways... Susan (this was before she got lucky) and I had a splendid wedding party on my birthday September 13, 1982 including her parents who surprised us by flying in from Toronto along with my business partners from Boise and an ex girl friend of mine who Susan and I had visited in Vail and flew in for the event. The ceremony was performed by ELVIS his own self so it is truly shocking that my second marriage collapsed so easily after my first one endured over a decade.
Both became training for my third and final marriage which lasted from January 7, 1989 until she moved away to Savannah  on July 31, 2000.

Three years later to the day, my Mom died on July 31, 2003.

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS
                  VS
SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

I AM STILL PISSED AT THE GIANTS FOR SWEEPING THE TIGERS IN THE WORLD SERIES TWO YEARS AGO BUT I AM ALSO STILL PISSED AT THE CARDINALS FOR BEATING THE FAVORED TIGERS IN THE 2006 WORLD SERIES IN JIM LEYLAND'S FIRST YEAR AS MANAGER.
THE ONLY WAY I GET REVENGE IS TO HAVE THE LOSER OF THIS SERIES LOSE TO THE ROYALS IN THE WORLD SERIES.
I REMEMBER VIVIDLY WATCHING THE ROYALS WIN THE 1985 WORLD SERIES  FROM A FANCY HOTEL SUITE IN MIAMI BEACH WHILE CHASING BUSINESS DOWN THERE. SABERHAGEN AND BRETT AND THE REST GOING CRAZY AFTER COMING BACK FROM 3-1 DOWN TWICE THAT POSTSEASON!

SHOULD BE A GREAT SERIES WITH STATE OF THE ART PITCHING HITTING AND DEFENSE. I AM ROOTING FOR 7 GAMES.
I WILL PICK A WINNER BEFORE GAME 7.
