Mrs. T's Anniversary



It wouldn't be out of line to wonder why, in Mayberry, 2 otherwise sensible people would marry on the the Ides of January.  The wedding day itself may have passable weather, but you set yourself up for a lifetime of dreary, cold, and inclement anniversaries.  And so we have.

I take full responsibility for the January decision.  My bride to be wanted to be married in the fall, but several important cogs in our wheel were not available.  I however, wanted to make certain my bride was Y2K compatible (that was important in those days). She offered no prior assurances, saying only that things would work out, "you'll see" she said repeatedly.   She wasn't Y2K compatible and knew it, while I still wait to see how things will work out.  Two or 3 times each week I'm likely to hear "I told you things would work out", to which I reply "ya, but you never said when", and so it goes.  Still, I am the happiest married man ever.

Today's anniversary, like all others is Mrs. T's anniversary. I'm blessed beyond measure simply to circle in her orbit, it's her universe and I'm joyously along for the ride.  I've said before and I repeat today, I did not marry my best friend, she does not complete me, she is not my soul mate. She does however make us "we", and together we are indomitable.  I love her madly. 

Thank you love for our wonderful life together, and yes, I'll sign up for at least another year.

The nasty weather on such a happy occasion is an obvious reason for a ....ROAD TRIP!!!

Saluting the two ahead of me in line today: Jack's road trip sounds like just the ticket, and I thought the same thing Shelley did when I read this! Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs T, your love story is an inspiration.

Many thanks. We've decided that for our 13th we will give each other one day off from having the flu. We've been sick all year and it's getting old.

Enjoy your ides.

Happy Anniversary! I love that picture, it makes me think one of you is up to something.

Toad said...

Up to something? Hardly. We are as pure as the driven slush around here

Kathy, Happy upcoming anniversary

You have described the perfect relationship, a happy anniversary to "we".

Oh, I'm so sorry! Getting sick is routine, you will ride that out, but listening to Sinatra will MAKE you old. Put that chicken soup spoon down for a minute and try this version of Second Time Around, see if it doesn't perk both of you up a little bit:
