Well….today is my 33rd wedding anniversary. I called my wife and asked her what her plans were for the evening and was told that we had reservations at her favorite restaurant. When I asked her what time the reservation was for she replied 7PM. The restaurant being close to home I asked her why she made the reservation for so late. Her reply….......ready….......”I thought you may want to unwind after work by spending an hour in the shop.” I hope that explains how we stayed married for 33 years.

She certainly sounds like a keeper. And, of course, after 33 years knows you pretty well (or is it that she has you trained pretty well)l. :)

As a matter of fact I didn’t go to the shop! Talk about a man of compromise and feelings? I wonder if that might earn me enough points for a new tool?

I have mixed feelings about this story. Somehow, it manages to be romantic and not romantic at the same time. :-)

Congratulations on the anniversary!
