Reminiscing


This date in 1984 was a Saturday. I know this not through some Rain Man-like knowledge of math and calendars, but rather I can remember.

Come now, you say, who can remember a Saturday 36 years ago? I also remember the day as sunny and warm. Way too warm for a tux.

”Ah”, you say. Yep, thirty-six ...hold on...carry the one...yes, thirty-six years ago today the wife and I were married in the local Methodist church surrounded by family and friends. We had a reception at the country club. Beer was provided, no bar, just finger food and cake. There was no DJ or band.

We spent our honeymoon in Gatlinburg.

Life with her has been grand. Our life in general has had some ups and downs and tough times. Even the worst of times were bearable with her at my side.

I have not made many good decisions in my life. Marrying this woman was certainly one of them.
