Tomorrow, Heather and I will have been married for 50 years. We had our ups and downs and craziness, most of which was mine. But we managed to hang in there. Through raising two kids, having maybe a dozen different jobs between us, Living in about 10 different places and going through some pretty serious medical stuff, we made it. I owe Heather more than I will ever be able to repay, for all the extra work she did to allow me the time to sit here tapping away on the keys, for all the love and support that she has given me so selflessly, and for the amazing mother she was that ensured our kids grew up with a real value system that has made them caring adults. And here we are in what will hopefully be our last house in one of the most beautiful parts of our country, with lots of family close by and a growing number of new friends. And I can honestly say the except for a few major screw ups and character flaws on my part, I wouldn't have had it any other way. I love Heather. Always have. Always will.
