It just dawned on me that:

25 years ago NOW I met my wife. She ran an open arts studio at University of Illinois-Chicago, and I became a teacher and artist-in-residence there.  But the day I first met her was when she had organized an exhibit and sale of items made in the studios.  I was dropping off my work and she was so pretty I couldn't look her in the eye and I ran out as soon as I could....and then
we were friends for 3 years and
23 years ago we had our first friendly outing, also in November (we would not become an item until the next year) and of course
22 years ago on Christmas we got married.
Those are some big numbers, aren't they?
