TWENTY FOURTH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.

“I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you." - Hugh Walpole, British dramatist and novelist 1884 - 1941.

And this is how I still feel, my Husband dearest, after 24 years of marriage.

 
And now for what Husband dearest had to say:-
"The following was in the charts the year after my beloved was born. It is possibly the most cheesy 60's record I have ever heard, and also the only track I know of, called 'Tracy'. Its high score on the cheesiness scale however does not obliterate the sentiment expressed, with which I wholeheartedly agree after 24 years manacled together...and so begins our 25th year together in unholy dreadlock."

Click HERE to go visit him and hear this wonderfully cheesy song.

"Tracy,
When I'm with you,
Something you do,
Bounces me off the ceiling."

Tracy- Twenty four years is wonderful! I'm so happy for you! Sorry I'm a day late, but Findings would be perfect for you to read. Your husband sounds like a shyly romantic man. I hope you lived it up or did whatever makes you two happy.

Sorry I haven't been over much, troubles with my youngest. Therapist and psych-doc this week hopefully will help.
