Twenty-two years and counting :)





Senior Management and I got married back in  1990. Today is our 22nd wedding anniversary. I consider myself a lucky man.

We've had our share of 'life' happening to us in the years since we first met, both as a couple and (in my case) personally - I'm looking at you, Great Follicle Recession of '89 - but then, what's the point of having good times if you don't also have the bad stuff to make you appreciate them more?

I've been looking back through the photos we took over the last 25 years. Here's one of my personal favorites:

25BILL~1


Of course, they're older now (all three of them). My son's at college and his sisters are near college age, but when I look at them, I can't help but see the little children in this picture.

Whatever you're doing today, I hope you have fun.

Two songs which seem appropriate for the occasion.

Obviously, "Happy anniversary and many more"
goes without saying, but I'll say it all the same.

I don't know, Irene, but I don't really think where you end up is so important. To me, it's more about who you become on the way :)

Thanks for sharing.
