When I'm feeling lonely, I know of two sure fire ways to get y'all to talk to me....in fact...they are my pocket aces! All I have to do is either post photos of Bella OR talk about Cat Daddy...and the crowd goes wild!Since today is the day 37 years ago I said "I Do" to this crazy man...let's talk Cat Daddy! In fact, can I get just a tad mushy? Don't worry...I don't believe in PDA, but I do believe in marriage being forever and being committed to one person. Frankly after 37 years, he and I both should be committed, but luckily we've made it this far without ever having been on the 10:00 news!
I won't lie and say it's always been easy...the road to true romance never is...but it has been quite the adventure! Together we have climbed mountains of bills, sailed the open seas of life, travelled the roads less taken, and built an empire of trust. We've surfed the web, ran the gamut of emotions from A to Z, got lost in translation and charted new horizons of hope. We've been to the moon and back countless times and seen the world through each other's eyes.
We've been to the top of the mountain and we've been in the valley of the shadow of death. We've faced the rapids of the river of no return and we've caught each other when we've tripped on the light fantastic.
We've made waves, whoopie and beautiful music together. We've raised eyebrows, Cain, children and more than a little hell. We've crossed our hearts, our fingers, each other's mind and been star crossed lovers, but through it all...never cross with one another....at least not for very long.
Most of all...we've laughed...for 37 years...with and at each other! Maybe that's the secret to a successful marriage...maybe not...but it's the one constant in our journey together.
Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!
Some men give their wives flowers...some diamonds. It says for the 37th, the gift is alabaster. Well, I'm here to tell you I don't want to be put on a pedestal. I want a man who knows the way to make me happy. Before you say "What was he thinking?"...remember I'm a junker. This bad boy drug home to me by MY bad boy is going to look mighty fine when I get through with it...just you wait and see! I got plans for it and for HIM!
Happy Anniversary Cat Daddy. Can I possibly get 37 more?
Mr. and Mrs. Cat Daddy
August 10, 1973
And they lived happily ever after!
