    They say if it rains on your wedding day,

    it's a good luck omen.... well it rained all day 23 years ago and didn't stop until about 1 hour before the ceremony.

    Today marks 23 years Dianne and I have been hitched to the same star... it's been a great ride and would be nice to see 23 more...

    This time last year, we weren't sure we would get another year. Dianne was 11 days into recovery from her stroke,
    4 months into recovery from a septic blood infection and waiting for heart for heart surgery in 7 days. But I was lucky, she made it and I still have her. It's been a long year, but recovery is progressing well.... only slight residual from the stroke - a little speech impediment when she's tired. The infection is gone and she's recovering great from the heart surgery. Only thing left, she needs something done to her back as she can only stand and walk for a short time before it gives out.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Thanks guys, appreciate the sentiments. I just made her favorite breakfast, eggs Benedict... slight variation though... we add a slice of tomato on the muffin and use Black Forest ham instead of Canadian bacon. I fix it for her at least once a week.

    Tonight, she's fixing shrimp on the bar-b-cue with vegetable kabobs and rice pilaf.... she wanted to make a berry cobbler, but I thought too
    much time on her feet, so made her buy a cherry pie for desert.

    Congratulations. It is good to learn how fleeting life and health maybe. Makes one stop taking things for granted. May you have many more years together, enjoying each other.
