On the afternoon of Monday, 9/10/2001, I was released from a hospital here in Florida after a 6 day stay because I'd been bleeding internally for two
weeks after a fall. I'd just moved down from Virginia in August to be with my ladylove.
On Tuesday morning, 9/11/2001, my love fixed coffee for me while I sat on the couch resting, then she went off to her job as guidance counselor at a
local high school. The house we had bought needed some work, so just before she left the contractors arrived to do cabinet work and miscellaneous wood
and drywall work.
I was parked in front of the tv sipping coffee as they got to work, worrying about where I'd find a job in a very non-cosmopolitan area. I was
watching the Today Show when the reports started coming in about one of the towers on fire. I immediately switched to CNN.
I saw it live, sitting on the couch. I called my love and told her what I had heard, as I was talking to her the second plane hit the second tower.
The rest is history.
Where were you and what were you doing?
