So Far, So Good

On this day
most of a lifetime ago
we stood up before family,
blood-tied with freely chosen,
and declared that we would
live together loving each other
for the rest of our lives.

So far, so good.

  1. Happy Anniversary. 🙂

  2. Congratulations, Jim. What kind of car is that?

      Thanks, Andra. Given the time frame, the car is probably a VW, but I don’t really remember where that photo was taken and I don’t remember who took it. Laura, probably.
