Today, the Ides of March, Carol and I celebrate our 63rd wedding anniversary. Last night, as I did last year, I read aloud the chapters from my memoirs, The View From the Rigging, that covered the events of our meeting, dating, and the wedding. We enjoyed a happy-hour cocktail in our study, listening to 50’s music, watching our scrolling screen panorama of family pictures.
I loved it when Carol’s eyes lit up, remembering an event as I read it knowing it was all new to her. I’m so lucky to have had so many great years with her.
