Anniversaries and Happy Friday, LeRoy


Once upon a time I left a monestary. I was, to say the least, unprepared. I had never had a date. I had never danced with a girl. I had not the slightest idea what to do with girl-type-women-of the opposite sex.

But I met this young lady at St. Johns College in Annapolis, Maryland. We were in the math tutorial together. We were in the Greek language tutorial together. We were in the music tutorial together. We were in the biology lab together, cutting up a very dead cat, together. I named our cat “Hugo” and she looked at me strangely. Twice a week we were in the evening seminars…together. I helped her with math and Greek. She was a good kisser. A very well balanced division of skills, I thought at the time.

You will probably be astonished to know I married her…or to be more precise, she married me. I was still clueless but after almost fifty years of marriage, four children, at least six countries lived in, I suspect I am more fortunate than she, poor woman. She’s still very smart, good lookin’, and compassionate.

My very best to you both on your event. I think most relationships, friendship as well as marriage, have much luck associated with them as well as hard work. We are both blessed.
