32 Years 6 days…..

Ah the 70’s     4-15-1978

So you might be thinking this is a mushy anniversary post.. Well, you’d be wrong. My kids, some of them worry about the way Paul and I talk to each other… They worry, I think we might be headed for divorce.. This post is for you guys….

.. After 32 years, one tends to start “speaking up”… Like  Betty….. “TAKE THAT BACK”!!!!  I know that seems I’ve reverted to childhood, but that’s how it goes.. ” SHUT UP OLD MAN!!!.. WHAT DO YOU KNOW?!!!  From Paul “CALM DOWN”!!!  “OH I FOUND THAT FIVE POUNDS YOU LOST—- while looking at my but…  Bickering…

Today, Sandi (Paul’s sister ) called about lunch… I’d been telling Paul it was today – Paul kept dismissing me and saying.. it’s tomorrow!!!  I say to Sandi,  it’s tomorrow right? NO she responds… it’s today.. So while Sandi waits on the line.. I tell Paul “ITS TODAY!!! I TOLD YOU THAT!!! , Paul, getting ready for work Yells back.. IT’S TOMORROW THAT THEY”RE TAKING CARL TO THE AIRPORT!!!! LUNCH IS TOMORROW!.. Well, I respond calmly.. CLEARLY honey, they’re at the airport now so THEY’D KNOW!!!!   Lunch will be rescheduled..

I asked Paul afterward why we sound like an old married couple… He responded that we ARE an old married couple.. I told him (foolishly) that in his arms I still feel like that 25 year old he met 32 years ago.. He stood back laughing  and told me “NO YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE THAT 25 YEAR OLD I MET…

Kids… Dad will be able to stand up straight in a few days.. We really are a happily married couple.. Really.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.
