Love Story: all about Brad

I can sense regular readers of CPR rolling your eyes, but trust me. This has nothing to do with those who sport beards. This is a different Love Story that I am indirectly involved in. It is February and in honor of this grand month it is time to recall love of days gone by.

Last year I got a friendship request on facebook from a woman in Colorado who will henceforth be known as The Kindly Old Lady (TKOL). We had no mutual friends and she didn't have a picture so I just let the invite sit... and sit... and sit. But my curiosity got the better of me and one day I accepted. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that TKOL only had friends named Michele that spelled their names with one L! After a little perusing I discovered that on a cruise TKOL, who has a bit of a sentimental side, found a message in a bottle written by a Brad to a one L Michele. Apparently this letter was deeply moving as Michele broke Brad's heart. I can relate to one L Michele's being a little ruthless where love is concerned and I DO know a Brad. I asked him if I ever broke his heart and if he ever poured his feelings into a bottle he threw into the ocean, he replied in the negative. (He was probably lying, because it is ME we are talking about) So I was forced to tell TKOL that she could scratch me (and Brad S.) off her list. Today I wanted an update on TKOL's search and found the following:

To all the Michele’s that have kindly accepted and assisted me in my search. It’s with deep regret that I have to end my search for the Michele & Brad “message in a bottle” romantic mystery. I feel I have contacted every Michele in every country on all social networks available with no success. It’s has been a tiring task and a long journey for me. I now believe in my heart I have done all I possibly could and feel that it’s “not meant to be”. My husband and I will be cruising the Indian Ocean in the next 2 weeks and I feel this love filled letter needs to return to the beautiful ocean where it came from. I plan to throw the bottle overboard as close as possible to the Mauritian and Seychelles islands. Hopefully it will find a strong current and lead it to a beautiful place along with all the other lost hearts. I want to thank those who had great interest in my search and best wishes for the future. Love to all the Michele’s, Loraine!

Well I must say... that's a dosey. A pox on all one L Micheles out there.

Do you think Simsism is going to retrieve his bottle from the Indian Ocean?

What an odd but kind older (I picture her much older) lady. My heart that hates Valentine's Day was almost melted... almost.

This is great. I've recently been trying to find a certain woman by the name of Zenobia. And I found her in Texas. I will need to post the whole story sometime.
