Monday Musings, Episode 6,419

For some reason I was dreaming about the Archduke Franz Ferdinand last night. That sentence is not completely true.  I know why I was dreaming about the Archduke. June 28 was the 100th anniversary of his death. In case you are not an aficionado of history, it was his assassination that set off WWI and thus WWII and thus the Cold War.  That bullet fired by Gavrilo Princep killed 50 million people.  I'm not in the mood for research and effort on this cloudy and warm Monday morning. So you will have to learn about the Archduke on your own time.

I married my wife thirty years ago today. I did not realize when the Minister said "forever" it would be this long. Ha, ha I joke. I got far better than I deserved when I found this girl. She is a great wife and a wonderful mother. She grows more beautiful every day.  We currently find ourselves adrift in some rough seas, but I know she will be there by my side.

I am a lucky man.

"So now I'm praying for the end of time, to hurry up and arrive..."

Just kidding. Happy anniversary!

May you both enjoy the next 30 with as much love as you have today. And may the rough seas turn out to be calmer than expected.
