Susan and the husband recently completed sixteen years of marriage and boy, they just flew by. Flew by.
She likes to think of herself and the husband as soul mates. Isn't that romantic?
Soul mates, indeed.

Would you believe her if she said that they haven't had a bad year yet?
Not an entire year.
Portions of some years have been bad
and Susan has not always been happy with her soul mate. Not at all.
But, she she sticks it out with him day after day the same way he sticks it out with her. They have things in common, like watching The Pope of Greenwich Village together, liking half & half in their coffee and having two children.

He's funny when he tells Susan
They are all jealous of our love.
Susan and the husband even made a video of their love. Twice.
Then erased the uninspiring evidence immediately after the initial viewings.

Susan still hasn't found her wedding ring. She stopped looking although she offered the kids $100 if they could find it. Susan assumes that one day a replacement will have to be purchased after which she'd like to renew her vows. The soul mate has already agreed to this.
From that day forward Susan will pay attention to where she puts things.

Susan has added a picture of herself and her husband and it has made me smile! I mean Susan and her husband look wonderful as a couple. I'd like them to join us on the porch, I think there would be lots of laughing. After they got over the shock of visiting such a rural, redneck kinda place! I just read Susan's post again and I am still smilin' cause yeah I know just what she is talking about. Well except for the Pope of Greenwich Village. But I love Geraldine Page so we are going to have to give that a watch!

You're like the Anti Jon Bon Jovi people. You give love a good name. And you remind me that one bad f*cking day is not one bad year. Happy Anniversary.

Happy Anniversary!

I am happy that your love makes you happy. I am also glad to know that a bad day, week or even a month doesn't not make make for a bad year. Although, being apart for a year kinda sucked.

Anyway, I'm glad for you!

Susan and her hubby are pretty darn sassy! We celebrated 23 years last week, and I have to agree, months and days have sucked at times, but overall the years have been mighty fine to us. Congratulations!
