"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity." ~ Gilda Radner

Twenty-seven years ago today, my husband met the woman of his dreams...

And then he met me.


No, seriously, folks...We met at a local eatery during an afterwork get-together...it was a Tuesday...

"Once upon a March 4th dreary..."

It was a snowy day -- not as snowy as the past few days here in Iowa -- but it was snowing...

"He, a carpenter, strong and able,
Happened by the writer's table..."

John and I have been through a few career changes since then...more than two decades of marriage, of course, bring with them more than career changes.

I'd be lying if I said we'd never faced any challenges or tough times in our relationship...

But nothing can come between two lovebirds faster than the debate over that age-old rascally relationship wrecker, the toothpaste tube. Well, maybe the whole "toilet seat up or down" issue, but that's fodder for another column.

Anyway...Here's to decades-long relationships and the sense of humor required to make them last!

"Quothe the carpenter and the writer...'Evermore.' "

Your memory never ceases to amaze me my friend! Congratulations on 27 years of a "wild and crazy" ride as our friend Steve Martin would say. You've always liked roller coasters even back in the KI days! Love ya...SS
