Commitment

Sandy and I decided this morning to establish a long-term relationship. We figured the trial period has been sufficiently lengthy and quite satisfactory. Today is our 50th wedding anniversary.

Tonight we are invited to dine out with son Lee and his fiancĂ© Karen. Next week we will celebrate the start of the next 50 with an auto trip to enjoy the wonders of the Lake Michigan shore. There just happens to be a glitzy casino right where we are headed. We’re not worried. We started with no money; we can restart the same way.

After your first sentence, I was gonna offer, "Congratulations!"

Then I read the rest of the post. And I say, "Congratulations!"

Hey there Packer man...

Just happened to be in the neighborhood so I thought I would stop by and offer my congratulations.

We enjoyed many comments that arrived via e-mail and other means. The Geezer especially liked this one, which appeared on Facebook:

"Congratulations, indeed. With Sanderella, I would have to assume that most of your years have been fun. She is true blue and wicked funny, smart, and pretty."

Spot on, I say.

Wow...I hope it lasts. Glad to see you're taking a 2nd honeymoon. That should do the trick !

Congratulations ! I just beat you to it in July.
If you have been as happy with the last 50 years as I have, you are a very lucky man.

Good luck at the tables. It's only money.

Congrats to you both on your 50th! Enjoy Mich. and hope you win a few $$$ -- the trick is to quit when you're ahead.

Commitment seems like a real possibility now that you've successfully weathered this trial period together.

My husband and I would have made it 50 yrs had he lived to 2013. Treasure the time you have together.
