31 and Counting


It was 31 years ago today that Livia and I got married. In some ways it doesn't seem nearly that long ago, and in others it seems like we've been together forever. I guess that's what happens when you're lucky enough to find the right person the first time.

In the swag department, Livia got me an iPod so I can have music while I'm walking (I try to walk at least a mile a day, but the hot weather in the summer cuts into that some) and boxed DVD sets of both seasons of THE RAT PATROL, one of my all-time favorite TV shows.

Congratulations from a long-time fan and even longer-time husband. My guess is that a marriage that's lasted 31 years has been a valuable source of plot material (he writes with a grin).

I have to agree with Randy. I loved Rat Patrol and have a couple of these books.

Congrats on finding Livia. Best wishes for many more years.

I love that expression on my face. That's my Lets get this thing cut and get out of here face. I would have been happy to have eloped.

Seriously, there is no one else I would have wanted to spend the last 31 years with. You are a wonderful husband and terrific father. I have been very blessed. Thank you for cutting that blasted cake and getting me out of there.
