The First Time I Saw Her and Two Tickets To Paradise with Cliff Doucette

"The first time I saw her, she was returning a toy that her niece had to my niece." Cliff was a musician and had just left his band in Hawaii.  He flew home with no home, no job, and very little money. And being the supportive parents, they took him in again.  So the good sister she was, she found him a job. He helped his sister with her kids after school.  It's funny because while driving for work that day "Two Tickets To Paradise" was being overplayed like they like to do with new songs that everyone loves.  He was thinking of how great Paradise would be but if it was truly paradise someone would be in that hammock in paradise with him. But when he saw Leslie for the first time, he knew exactly who he'd like to have in his hammock with him.  Now Leslie was just "in town" and was going to head back home soon.  In her time left in CA, they made the most of it and fell in love. 15 years into marriage, you know, you have the mortgage and kids running around soaking up money faster than you can make it.  Cliff looked up the gift you are "supposed" to gift for your 15-year anniversary and Crystal just wasn't in the budget.  Now Cliff is a musical guy so he decided to craft a song for Leslie. He made it special with fancy paper and created the sheet music...he even framed it.  Raise of hands ladies...who would like that more than crystal?  I definitely would!!   You'll have to check out the episode for the lessons Cliff shared about supportive parents and the place you choose to work.
