The Ides of March: A good day.

As We Were::1958

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.

I have to tell you right up front. I’m a story teller. After graduation from the Coast Guard Academy in 1957, my twenty-eight years of active duty have given me a lot of fodder. I finally heeded my daughter’s pleas, “Dad, you have got to write those stories down,” and published my memoirs in 1975. Caught up in the writing experience, I moved on to publish a novel in 2019 and I'm continuing to write. It's my new number 1 hobby.
