Celebration time

We're off the celebrate our 33rd anniversary together. Seems much longer, and at the same time, much shorter. We plan to enjoy each other's company over a movie followed by a fancy dinner, then - we'll see. If the first two are eventful I'll let everyone know.

Have a nice weekend

Congratulations on 33 years.

DW and I would have been married 33 years this year if she had said yes the first time...or maybe not...

Hope you have a great weekend together!

I know exactly what you mean. We've been married for over 17 years now, and in some ways it feels like we only married yesterday. On the other hand sometimes it's hard to recall memories of life before she came around -- they seem so distant!

Congrats on your 33rd -- hope I'm around to say that in another 16 years.
