My oh my, how time does fly.........
« on: August 02, 2013, 03:34:37 PM »
Today is my anniversary -- 23 years ago I met Sid at a gay A.A. Round-up at Yale University......  Hard to believe how much time has gone by since then.  I was a mere babe of 26, Sid was approaching 34.  It seems like we've been together forever, while at the same time it feels like we just met.

We've been through so much together, deaths, births, my activation and deployment to Iraq during Desert Storm, my diagnosis, etc.........  We upped and moved away from family and friends in New England to settle here in Richmond, VA.

It is amazing what joy life can bring by simply putting a single person in your life.

Of course, now we get a second anniversary date, as Sept 1st will mark our first wedding anniversary.

Hugs to all,
Mike

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!  It is good to have someone in your life so long, that you can recall all the good times together, and even the bad times.

All the best for many more happy and healthy years together.

Thanks all!

Had a low key night last night.  We went to a free production of "Footloose, the Musical" at a local outdoor theater.  Brought a picnic of Sid's favorite -- fried chicken (yes, he and our own Wumpy could be twins in the nutrition dept).

The show was very good.

Now -- need to plan something for Sept 1!?!

Hugs,
Mike
