It all began 38 plus years ago – a journey – a epic adventure –
Opposites in so many ways – but so same in other ways !
A grade school friend of mine is embarking upon a bike ride –
a 450 mile bike ride – for charity – his wife is driving the motor home
I ONCE rode a bike for 34 miles –
NEVER AGAIN !
She talked me into riding through the streets of DC.
They were playing the theme song of ” ROCKY” at the start !
She said – “LETS DO THE WHOLE COURSE – YOU CAN DO IT ” !
That is my wife Sherry –
she always knows no boundary and that is why I married her !
About 3 miles from the finish line –
I CRAMPED UP !
I had to get off the bike and walk –
or they would have to take me to the hospital !
My thighs were balling up –
That was my first and last time riding in a bike tour !
Didn’t bother her a bit –
But – I will say up to then it was fun !
I will get dressed – we are going somewhere –
Then – I GET THE EVER SO CRITICAL EYE !
Your shirt has a spot on the back of the shoulder !
I look – and look – pin head size – yet she spotted it !
Change shirt –
put in laundry room –
HOW DID SHE SEE THAT ?
She could actually take the place of those satellites in space
The kind that can see a golf ball from a thousand miles away !
Now she can sing – I can’t –
I sound like a old love sick coon hound !
But – when we do get together with friends –
The KARAOKE MACHINE comes out –
Cindy ( the lounge lizzard ) has a portable one –
We always sip a few – toss back some fireball
and begin our singing !
Sherry gets into it after a glass or two –
Again – having fun – laughing –
38 years of it !
The ability to laugh with and at each other –
Parking lots – we always end up in a parking lot when she drives –
No good reason to be there –
we laugh about it –
I can’t hear or so she says
I get mail on hearing aids –
She swears she had nothing to do about it
It is the little things in life that makes her my best friend.
38 years is a long time
life is good
life is funny
