It was Valentines Day, 1997. I was on midnight patrol in a sleepy town. I decided to leave an ad in the Chicago Tribune Dateline. Back in the day, we used a thing called a newspaper to put ads out.
I put the ad out and it was supposed to be in the Sunday classifieds. So on Thursday or Friday, I called to leave a message and there was a message for me. I answered it and made my first call that weekend. I didn’t know it, but I was talking to my future wife.
It will be 20 years this August. 🙂
