Old Fools Journal: That Fateful Day The Adventure Started.

Well another year has rolled around since that fateful day 27 years ago when SWMBO (she who must be obeyed) and I threw our lot in together. I don't believe I can say it any better than I did in this post in 2010.

We celebrate the day we ran off together not the day we actually got married. The getting married part was the least important thing and was only to include the government in our arrangement. Getting married at best is a three way with the government. At worst it is a four way with the government and whatever church you wish to include. After six or so years of getting to know each other, crossing an ocean and going native I decided that there were advantages for her if we were married. She practically had to be dragged before the Justice of the Peace. I am sure she has been momentarily sorry from time to time just as I have but as it is for me it is probably fleeting. She seems to still like me I think because she still kisses me on the lips in public.

You are right Steven. I don't buy Valentine cards. I make them instead. I value hand made more than store bought and I hope others do as well. Everything that is handmade has a little of the person that makes it in its makeup. I have never discarded a handmade card I received and I enjoy looking at them over and over remembering those that made them.

I do buy candy for our anniversary (Valentine) but then I buy candy as a gift for no reason once in a while. Today I am shopping for a specific kind that I just happen to know she likes.
I do not think Hallmark is going to try to recruit me.

Oh so sweet, but I still won't let you kiss me.

Sounds like an extended Honeymoon to me. Was that card R-rated? You are generous to share the love beam with us. We're on our way over for cake and champagne.
