Happy Anniversary

Great Scot

Nineteen years ago today, the Queen graced my life by becoming my wife. I can honestly say that I am a much better and happier person because of her. I love you and honor you on this day.



We went to Aspen for our honeymoon. This is picture of us in Aspen on a street corner in a heavy snow storm which had enormous snowflakes. I have always liked the way the flash captured the snowflakes in this picture.

Prior to our honeymoon, the Queen had never been skiing, and, unfortunately, I cannot say that she took to it like a duck to water. Her first day out, she was in tears at lunch from frustration, and I was busily calculating in my head how I could get us to Hawaii from there!

It all worked out well in the end, she finally got the hang of skiing and we had a fine time. My only remaining problem during that trip was convincing her that when you are on a ski trip, you SKI. Shopping, lingering breakfasts, sleeping in are all fine and good, but these things can be done in Dallas, skiing can't.

Happy Anniversary, my love. 'til the sun don't shine.

Gracious, and all those people in that house. I think the older girls should kick you two out of the house long enough for a romantic date. Just my opinion, but it makes sense to me.
