Today Cliff and I have been married forty-five years. Wow. Somebody in this world has been able to put up with me that long? Unbelievable! We were both twenty-one when we married (OK, Cliff was two days away from being twenty-one), and were such kids at the time. Our paths led us to a life beyond the sidewalks, out in the boonies; and our love of all things rural has had a lot to do with the marriage lasting, because it's the one thing we've had in common when all else failed.
Happy anniversary, Cliff!
