Happy Anniversary to Jim and me: 33 years



Jim and I celebrate 33 years of marriage today. Appropriately enough, we are both off for a snow day today! We were married in the middle of an amazing winter storm in Ohio 33 years ago. It was a small ceremony in my parents' living room in front of a roaring fire, but most memorable. Happy anniversary to you, my darling. I look forward to many more.

"Sonnet 29"
When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
~William Shakespeare



Just to prove that I was not exaggerating about the snow, this is the next day when we started driving to New Jersey.

Thanks, Mary. It's been a real treat to have the day off together even though we are prisoners in the house. The ice is still coming down.

Thank you, Frieda. We have always felt very fortune that we found each other.
Warm regards,
Dana
