Today is our 42nd wedding anniversary.  I showed DW some wedding photos and told her she is the best thing that ever happened to me.   Unfortunately I am a bit sick and we are headed for the doctor.  So we will celebrate tomorrow and Sunday.  

I found a an unused "brand new" silk nightgown in her closet that I bought in Germany.  It still had its price tag on it in DEUTSCH MARKS, which they stopped using in 2002 so its at least 15 years old.  she loved it.

Congratulations on 42 years!!  And it is so nice to be able to find a suitable gift by shopping in the privacy of your own closet.  

Excuse my warped sense of humor, but you coming out of the closet with a silk nightie just doesn't sound right.    

I hope you have a great celebration.

My doctor was not in so I saw DW's doctor.  I have Strep throat.  Her nice lady Doctor told me to go home and go to bed.  Turned to DW and said "now you go and take take good care of of him" 

My kind of Doctor!!!!!

SO sweet love seemed that April morn, When first we kissed beside the thorn, So strangely sweet, it was not strange We thought that love could never change.   But I can tell—let truth be told—         5 That love will change in growing old; Though day by day is naught to see, So delicate his motions be.   And in the end ’t will come to pass Quite to forget what once he was,         10 Nor even in fancy to recall The pleasure that was all in all.   His little spring, that sweet we found, So deep in summer floods is drowned, I wonder, bathed in joy complete,         15 How love so young could be so sweet.

 Footsteps in the sand

Stretch back till time began

And forward lies a path

We cannot know

 But here and now we walk

And love and laugh and talk

And give each other life

And love and hope

 The birds are singing near

The touch of dawn is here

The golden sun is climbing

In the sky

 For all must walk this way

Draw pleasure every day

And leave the dark and cold

behind your back

 My love and I have come

From dark and cold to sun

And now we feel the warmth

upon our hands

 We have this day to live

Our love and hope to give

And we will gather treasure

while we can

 While there is breath in man

We make life what we can

And take the sun and sand

and sea and sky


We take them for our own

Our life our love our home

And we will walk together

You and I

Crushed-  March 10 2011
