Today is my anniversary! Larry and I have been married for 12 years. Why is it that it seems like forever and yet just like
yesterday? I picked out some neat love songs ~ There are several in a row. I put the Randy Travis I'm gonna Love You Forever song first. I remember when it first came out years ago, I cried because I thought that kind of love had passed me by. Then I met the big man.

I had been a single mother for what seemed like an eternity when I met Larry.

I told him "I don't need a man, I need a donkey."

He replied "Where in the back forty do you want me to kick up my heels ~ I'll hee haw for you."
Wow, the beginning of true love! I was as serious as that groundhog eating my vegetables this past summer and so was he! One day while we were "courting", this song came on the radio. Larry grabbed my hand and said, "I'm gonna love you forever and ever, Amen" Who can resist a good man and good music? Hubba, hubba, hubba



Larry is the mushy one in the marriage; I am not. He buys the best cards and gifts and flowers. He even does it on un events! He never forgets dates like birthdays, anniversaries. The only reason I remember my anniversary is because I have one of those lists on the computer to remind me. That doesn't make me a bad wife does it? I am good at other things. I have a great sense of humor, I am loyal, faithful, and Larry thinks I am easy on the eyes. I have also learned how to turn around three times before I sit down. I would make a wonderful lap dog.

So, Happy Anniversary, Luscious. I'm gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever, AMEN.

thanks everyone. We are truly living proof that there is someone out there for everyone. Larry sure didn't know what he was getting himself into when he married a menopausal woman with kids but ~ but, he has stuck with me this long; I think he'll keep me.
