Has it really been eight years?

Some of my frequent readers may remember that a year ago this time, I posted an entry (seen here) about my seventh anniversary. It turns out, this time of the year is pretty popular, Brian the Red should have celebrated their 33rd (if I can do the math right) anniversary about a week ago and Brooke her eleventh a couple of weeks ago based on comments they left last year. Happy anniversary to both of them.

Today, I want to thank my dear, sweet wife for making me happy for the last eight years (and the year we dated before that). In many ways it seems like just yesterday we met and went to a short lunch at Schlotzsky's (which sadly is no longer there). In other ways, it seems like time started on that day eight years ago.

There's too much to say (and way to sappy) to post it all here, but I can say that I love you more today than ever before. And as much as I've enjoyed the last eight years, I'm looking for the next eight and the next eight and the next. We laughed last night, that if we get to celebrate our 50th, we'll both be in our 90's. Doesn't seem like so bad a deal...

Congrats and remember 90 is the new 60, you'll get there.

Congrats on the milestone, it was 33 yesterday actually, the day my wife had her gall bladder removed (she'll do almost anything to get flowers.)

I'm thinking we will actually celebrate it in another 4 months, calling it our 33-1/3 anniversary. Which is a reference to back in the old days when vinyl records came in two forms, the single which was played at 45rpm and the *long playing* album which played at thirty-three and a third rpm.

Thanks Neil and Chuck. 50 doesn't seem to far away...

Brian, "she'll do almost anything to get flowers" - man you're rough.

33-1/3 anniversary, I like that. I remember both 45's and albums. The neat thing was playing 45's at 33-1/3 or even better 33-1/3's at 45rpm.

"The neat thing was playing 45's at 33-1/3 or even better 33-1/3's at 45rpm."

I was going to say, "See what kids these days are missing.", but realized there is probably a plug-in or something on their media player of choice to accomplish the same thing digitally.
