holy cats, 20 years ago TODAY!

I am really good with all the little anniversaries, like first met (11/30/1989), first outing (11/28/91), first kinda date--to see Beauty and the Beast (12/13/91) first time first kiss--she was getting on the Halstead bus to go home (1/30/92) and like, of course, as you see BElow, wedding (12/24/92). But goldarnit to hell, I nearly FORGOT A SUPER BIG ONE TODAY: TOGETHER> 2/1/1992 we were TOGETHER. An item! I had a party 1/31/92, and, well, she (the future wife) stuck around late, after, saying "OH! I could, um, help you clean up!".....and you know HOW THAT can, well...anyway...as of the next morning, February 1, we considered ourselves an item. You can wonder all you want at what happened that weekend (YOU FILTHY PREVERTS....I am not gonna tell you any LURID DETAILS), but the day after the party, as I say, we were an US. We had some distant wedding date planned that spring, but, well, July 4th, we were at Kathy's wedding, and were like "shoot, why wait months or years? Let's get married CHRISTMAS!" and we did...but that was 10-11 months after the big ONE...where we learned that we are an item :) Shoot, I am sooooooooooooo lucky to have this gal!

(12/24/1992)


I remember this rather awesome tune on the radio when we got together and...


I remember talking with (the wife) winter of '92, about this album, whose cover, as you recall, had the swimming baby:
she was like "you can see his little winkle!" which cracked me up....

I am terrible at dates! I'm jealous of this ability of yours.

Congrats to you and Maude! You guys are great.

Doesn't Maude have the best smile? I'll answer that myself. She does.

We celebrate "that" anniversary too. Nineteen of "those" anniversaries, to be exact.

You both are incredibly lucky and incredibly wonderful.
