26 years, believe it or not!
Twenty-six years ago yesterday, this wonderful woman named Betsy said, "I do!" which was a really big improvement over, "I guess so..." which is what she said when I asked her to marry me.

I can't believe it has been that long. We've lived in the Bay Area, the Morro Bay Area, Austin, Round Rock, the Seattle area, and now Chicagoland in those 26 years. We've had an array of critters and one fantastic kid.

And she still loves me. And I still am amazed at that.

So I work at it.

I had 18 assorted roses delivered to the school she teaches at yesterday afternoon. I bought her a big frog from squishables.com because we've had this running joke throughout the last 27 years about frogs and handsome princes,
and I had our friend Yvon Savoie from Savoie Faire Graphic Arts in Sooke, BC on Vancouver Island make me a giclee print of Betsy's favorite picture of her heart-dog Ladybug, R. I. P.
, which of course made Betsy cry. And then we went out to dinner at Wildfire in Oak Brook where we had a fantastic dinner thanks to the intervention of Matthew Oliver the General Manager, who even had a special dessert made for us.

It was a very nice day. Even though I'm trying to recover from this respiratory thing that everyone has. And a good time was had by all.
