Today is the fifteenth anniversary of my wedding to my lovely wife, Sherry.

While, God willing, there are many decades to go, I will say that fifteen seems like a serious number of years to have been married.

Indeed, we have managed the following (among other things) in the last fifteen years:

  • Produced three wonderful boys.
  • Lived in three states (although, granted, we were only in California as husband and wife for a week, and almost all of that was spent on our honeymoon).
  • Lived in two countries on two continents.
  • Moved a grand total of eight times (and, as such, I can testify that moving bites).
  • Had two dogs and two cats (and numerous fish—which, for some reason, we can’t keep alive).
  • Managed to get me through a doctoral program and into a tenured position.

Not bad for fifteen years. Heaven only knows what comes next.

At any rate: a very Happy Anniversary to my lovely bride.

(And btw: you know you are a hardcore blogger when you can directly tie your anniversary into your blogging. To wit: Permanent Guest BloggerTM was Best Man at our wedding. Further, an user from our wedding will be doing some guest-blogging as well next week while we are on vacation—announcements on that matter soon to follow).

Note: I thought that this was posted first thing this morning. However, something happened (operator error, not doubt) that resulted in it not being up for some reason. Ah well.

    Steven L.:

    Come to think of it, there are two restaurants I know of that have free WiFi, but I am thinking I had better leave the laptop at home. Plus, neither are upscale enough for an anniversary dinner.

    Getting you through the doctoral program alone should count for five extra years! ;-)

    Happy 20th 15th!
