Default 33 years ago today

33 years ago I married the love of my life.
We have had a great ride, four really good children, 5 dogs and had some really good times together.
I almost lost her to stage 4 melanoma about 1/2 way through but we are stronger for it.
Here were are a little older and slower, welcoming every new day together.

Very nice, Congratulations! Sounds like you got a good one. Of course we figured she must be an extremely patient person.

Me too, except my 33 years included four really good women and 3 dogs.
I should get another dog!
Seriously though, congratulations.

33 years, congratulations to you both. Is the pope waiting til 35 years before he puts her up for sainthood? I think the consensus here is she deserved it a long time ago!
