Ot: 07/03/2012 - 07/03/1964 = 48

Yep, we made it to 48 years (tomorrow). Hopefully, we will get to to 50.

Really hard times, really great times. I have learned a whole lot, as I think my wife has.

Right now it is one of those really hard times for my wife, and, therefore, for me.

We keep plodding on!!

And, yes, we are going to bicycle together tommorrow on the Highline Canal, and then a nice lunch.

Good for y'all Denver and Mrs. Nora, super to read that another year has clicked off for you. Many more to come, hopefully. July was a good month for weddings, I'd say.
