sad

It was about 5:30 in the evening.

10 years ago.   John and I were at the State Fair.    We were at a booth that sold globes you filled with water and put flower arrangements in.   I bought 2.    My memory is still totally clear.   The lady looked at us and said "Princess Diana is dead".   I was shocked.   I had fallen into the Princess Diana dream when they got married, I had (and still do) the collector coin of the two of them,  I stayed up late and watched the wedding and all the festivities on the TV.

We were just kinda shocked.   We wandered a while longer at the Fair then went home.   I don't remember if it was my house or his, but most likely his as he was just a mile from the fair grounds.   We were still fresh to the relationship and I know we werent living together yet.   So we just sat and watched all the craziness on TV.

I can't beleive it's been 10 years.

Rest in Peace Diana.
