April 17th, 2007, 08:12 PM #136 Years of "Luck" In A Row!
Tonight my wife Ellen and I celebrated our 36th anniversary over dinner at a new seaside restaurant here in Punta Gorda. It was 36 1/2 years ago that I bought a ring for $11 at a flee market in California. That night, after dancing for hours at our favorite dance place, I pulled into a supermarket parking lot, and under the "romantic" lights of the parking lot, I proposed.
We've had a wonderful life together, raised three fantastic / problem free sons, and now have two priceless little crumb cruncher grandkids, and a third due in September. Of all my entrepreneurial adventures over the years, my marriage, partnership, and friendship with Ellen is hands down my proudest success. Hey, I'm a lucky dude!

HOORAY for you and Ellen, Alan!!!
Shirley and I will mark our 40th anniversary on May 26.
Hey, now I don't feel like quite such an Old Guy if you're at 36.
And I absolutely understand what you mean about "luck." I marvel daily that Shirley for some reason I will never understand chose to share her life with me for all these years. I literally thank God every day -- and I think it must relate to all that we human beinks mean when we use the word "grace."
End of sermon,

Thank you all very much. I too hope to have 36 more. Of course, by then we'll be racing each other in our powered wheel chairs! But hey, when you live life on the edge and push the envelope, wheel chair races are inevitable!

Annie, Dnuts, thank you so much.
Donuts, you have been a great fishing bud and all-round friend these past four months in FL. Strangely, as a result of the fishing, tennis, having a few seaside cold ones, dining, talking industry stuff, and just blowing off steam, I've actually found a new friend here in Florida. Thanks for your very kind words and your compliments about Ellie too D. She's all of that and more.
SB Annie, Thank you, it's my pleasure to be an ABW'er too! A big hug for you.
Matt, thanks hombre! As always, your compliments always include the ever present age slams, and I appreciate it.
Thank you very much boys and girls!!
