HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY LOVE

One of my favorite pictures, taken by my daughter, a couple of years ago.  




Today we celebrate Jack's 82nd birthday.  I am so lucky to have met - and after several years - married this man.  Briefly, for those that don't know our story, we met online, when that was a fairly new experience.  No Facebook, MySpace or dating sites.  Just two pen pals with common interests.  I relocated to Florida from Texas.  And the rest is history.
"Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be"  (anon).  Certainly at our ages - late 60's and 70's when we met - we were not spring chicks.  And we both face the challenges of aging.  But together we meet each change as it comes, and treasure each moment in a way we could not before.
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JACK.  May you reach your goal to live to be 101 1/2years young, with me by your side.

Happy, happy birthday Jack! Dance this new year in, especially, and of course, a slow dance with your wonderful wife. Blow out all the candles. Dance some more. Eat cake. Kiss. Another dance. :)

SO glad to meet you both. (Thank you, Deb!)
