Two decades later

I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. ~Rita Rudner



I found that ONE special person on August 1st 1985.  A blind date.

The smiles and laughter have outweighed the shanking’s….

by a mile.

What can I say…I could not resist a man who netted me like that.little fish

That could possibly be considered domestic abuse today. I am just sayin’….things were lighter in the eighties.

He is so loveable, I just want to eat his face. That usually only happens when he gives me martini’s though.

August 2007 123

Yes we are made for each other. Who else would have us?


Cheers to 20 more…and then some.

I was informed that dinner reservations have been made for Saturday.

Who knew Chic-fil-a accepted reservations?

  1. Wait, did I already know that you and Karen (Gberger) had the EXACT same anniversary? I vaguely remember that we were married the same year, but I didn't remember about you guys having the same anniversary. Oh, and we also started dating in 85…weird, huh?Wow, 91 was a big year for love 🙂

  4. Love the retro pics. I don't want to tell you how many kids I had in college in 1985 because it would ruin my day. Instead I'll wish you and Coach the bestest time Saturday night. I hope the Chick*fil*a Cow serenades the two of you!


  5. Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, HaaaaaappyAnniversaryyy! (you have to imagine the Flintstones' episode song here to get the right message.) I love your photos – you and Coach always look as if you are laughing at a private joke. You do look made-for-each-other; what a great blessing for you, your family, and everyone who knows you. Here's to 20 x 20 more! xoxo
