28 years ago today this lady claims she married me and she’s been following me around ever since. I’ve always maintained that 28 years ago tomorrow I married her and she’s been following me around ever since. While she says she has the marriage license to prove it, I say Al always agreed with me and put the date in the club newsletter as tomorrow.
In that time we’ve weathered the hard times and enjoyed the good. I do remember it was snowing like crazy on that day, and the judge had no so sense of humor. I simply asked him if there was any way to get a permit instead of a license in case it didn’t work.
This lady blackmailed me into two vacations, complained when I went fishing or spent too much time in the garage, and was with me in the emergency room the few times I’ve needed patching up. And she will not allow me to say “it doesn’t cost anything to look” anymore.
But I still love her because she puts up with me. She knows I’m as surprised as everyone else with some of the things that come out of my mouth because I speak before thinking. Today we will begin another chapter in our cruise through life. So happy anniversary dear. But please quit the talk about celebrating our 50th together. If I live that long I won’t need a lecture about racing my wheelchair in the Nursing Home halls.
