Today is my 33rd wedding anniversary.

Just thought I'd like to share that.

Congratulations!

You'll have to let us know when it's been 33 years, 4 months, 10 days and 8 hours.

Thanks, all.

Twelve is something to be proud of, InarticulateBabbler, especially when you hear all the statistics out there.

Josephine Kait, I figured if I just counted 33 years and 4 months it was close enough to one third of a century.


Edited to add: our youngest will have just married by our 1/3 century mark (oh, the joys of getting a kid married off...).

You're married!?!?!

You mean I've been doing all this flirting for nothing?

Hey, I could have asked for minutes and seconds too!

LOL, sorry, damn engineers are rubbing off on me.


I just passed the 10yr mark, but I'm hoping for at least 70 more.

Congrats again,

-Jo

Is that what you've been doing, snapper?

Thanks, everyone.

Josephine Kait, I guess the engineers I hang around with are the slide-rule type who are willing to round stuff off if it isn't life-threatening. Congrats on your 10+ years.

Congrats! I hope you did/got something fun for your anniversary.

IB - meanwhile, who knew we had so much in common. We celebrated a dozen this year too! I knew there was a reason I liked you.

Wow. And I've only known you for, what, a quarter of a century?

Way to go.

Yeah, it probably has been that long, Robert. Wow is right.

We went out to dinner at a seafood restaurant. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE seafood. I had "seafood stuffed flounder" and my husband had salmon and shrimp, and we gave each other tastes. I love salmon, but it's been years since I had flounder (first tasted that when we lived in Victoria, Texas where they eat a lot of flounder--YUM!).

And we talked about looking into getting another cat (or cats) which makes me happy.

Of course that's what I've been doing KDW. But of course 33 years of marriage ain't going to get me to stop.

This brings my own anniversary story to mind. I wanted to do something special for my wife for our tenth. So I started stashing money away, a little bit at a time. Saved enough to buy tickets to Hawaii where we got married in 91.
I wanted to spring the surprise on her birthday, after all when could plane tickets to Hawaii ever be wrong? On this day.

Sept. 11th 2001


We went anyway, Maui is perfect in November.

Congratulations, Kathleen, and Happy Anniversary.

My husband and I aren't too far behind you. We finished 32 years on 7-2-2008. We were married 2 days before the USA's bi-centenial. We didn't choose that date deliberately. It was just when hubby's two week vacation started. We honeymooned in St. Louis, MO.
