The Days Are Long, But The Years Are Flyin' By, Baby!

Much like today, our weather 22 years ago was mostly cloudy with a hint of rain with the sun playing hide and seek most of the day. Finally, on that day many long years ago, just before seven o'clock, a fine mist began to fall…and that's the day I married my best friend!

Sounds cheesy, right? You bet, but it just happens to also be the truth. He's still my best friend today!
A rare photo of a smile on his face!
You may know him as a mild-mannered, laid back guy named Chris, but don't be fooled! I thought it might be fun to show you some of his other "sides:"
Goofy
He's got a great sense of adventure as long as it doesn't involve planes or long car rides…
Horrified
He's almost always calm and is seldom surprised though he does occasionally pretend to be outraged…
Distant
Every once in a while he gets very reflective and when he comes back from his thoughts, he asks something profound like, "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to talk to animals?"
A good judge of character
He's not often fooled by people and the many facades they wear. When he focuses his attention on you, it's like you're the only one in the world. He may also have a touch of pirate blood in him...
Constipated?
He's seldom in a really bad mood, though occasionally he gets grumpy…but then who doesn't? He's also wildly amused by farts, burps and other body function noises…but then what guy isn't?
Hello, Mr. Serious
He can also be stern, intense, and he has a great "you're about to disappoint me" stare. But mostly, I know him by his smile and great sense of zany humor and love of animals:
The man and a canine bud from work
May the next 22 years be as fun and full as the first ones, I love you, Chris!! Thanks for being a good sport about me taking your pictures at lunch a few weeks ago. :)

(We'll be back to our normal programming next week.)
