15 years ago….

….  the most beautiful of all women married me.

I am not an easy man to live with.

15 years later, she is still here in our home. I call that a miracle.

Our ups and downs, lefts and rights, have changed both of us to be different people then when we met.

But today, we still love each other so much.

I guess that is the definition of a great marriage!

    Sincere congratulations. I’m envious.

    Congratulations, Flag!

    And congratulations to Mrs. Flag who, I can only assume, has the patience of a saint.

    .. but I think you made a typo..

    Our ups and downs, lefts and rights, … I think that should read “Our ups and downs, rights and more rights and even more rights” 🙂

    I’m rounding out the corner on two years, myself. I don’t know how she puts up with me.

    Make sure to take her out to a nice dinner tonight, or you’ll be hearing about it for the next 15 years.

    Congrats, brother. I’ve made the trip 4 x’s … just set the record this year with #4 … 8 years for us.

    Do what Matthius said … dinner … wine (not the twist off cap) … flowers (not plastic) … a guitarist (not metal) … all best to you both.

    Forty-five years, in my case.

    I hope you have practiced your “yes, dear”‘s assiduously. I notice there are no posts signed by her.

    Perhaps, her posts would say, “That’s very nice, dear.”

      45 years! WoW!

      I doubt I will live that long – I was a late start.

      She does not post, leaves that to me – but I would probably see one of these three lines if she did.

      The one you surmised:
      “That’s nice, dear”

      The other:
      “Be nice, dear”

      And a lot of these:
      “Time to shut up, dear”
