Thought for the Day

“Marriage
A book of which the first chapter is written in poetry,
and the remaining chapters written in prose.”

Who would’ve thunk?

Twenty five years ago today a woman I know took a bold and risky step into the sacred world of matrimony. Ignoring the advice of family members, friends, well-wishers and local authorities, her head a swirl with wedded bliss or possibly infatuation, she married a man she had known less than eight months. No-one really knows what she was thinking then… or now! Perhaps she had given up hope on ever finding Mr. Right and settled for the next best thing, Mr. Wrong’s brother-in-law.

It soon became apparent to her that the man she had fallen in love with had many disorders most of them mental…

A woman with compassion more than any woman who I’d known before, except my mother, who’s philosophy on life is Live and Let Live, she has a kind love and admiration for all living things; plants, insects, animals, and even most humans, and yet for twenty five years shew has endured a life with a grouchy, opinionated, arrogant, obstinate poo-poo head like me… I am the luckiest man on earth. 

My lover, My Best Friend, My Wife Susan,
I Love You now more than ever!

Happy 25th

  1. Yes Dear,

    It’s been 25 years. Back then I was not looking to marry. In fact I had always said I never would marry. But then you came along and well, I changed my mind. Charismatic and persistent you actually courted me. And when I did not say yes (or no) to your proposal (after knowing me only 1 month) you said, “I’m not going to ask you again. You’ll have to ask me”. And 5 months later I did (in my own way). You said ok, we both said “I do” and here we still are!

    Happy Anniversary Charley

    I Love You too!
