Happy V. D.

Happy Valentines Day. My mom and dad were married on Valentines Day. Married by Rev. Valentine in fact. Their marriage lasted 42 years before ending in divorce - just a little heartwarming tidbit for you on this Valentines Day. The Missus and I will have been married 42 years in about a month. That's good enough to tie but not enough yet for the win. Most people probably don't think of marriage as a competitive sport but it really is. If you want to stay at the top of your game, you have to practice and more often than you'd like you have to take one for the team. They say married people live longer. Maybe. Maybe it just feels longer. I'm thinking the Missus and I should be able to go the distance, however. Sure hope so. She's taken more than one for the team over the years. Definitely deserves better but I'm what she's got. 

 Just as true now as when this was written, probably more so, in fact. What the world needs now is love, sweet love. So pull your head out, appreciate those who love you and be good to them and yourself.

Thanks for the mention on V.D. Funny I mentioned this today and had not read it as of that time.
Love you 2 toots.
