Happy (40th) Anniversary!

To My Trophy Wife!

Congratulations to us for our non-stop mariner & marital Companionship of four decades! At the risk of appearing too self-absorbed, I just have to take a little time out for a acknowledgment of time passing...


We have sailed together on many boats and waters. But the seas have always seemed tranquil because our love has always proved to be unquestionably sea-worthy...I'm not sure about those final lines: I'm not aware of the temperature falling. And every day, the cool morning dew completely evaporates between the time Ballou and I retrieve the papers and you greet us at the door with your first smile and your perfectly uncombed hair.

40 years, eh? It took me almost that long to find someone who could stand me for 40 minutes.

Congrats.

Oh Vig... you got me sitting here at my morning sign on all cryin' for sweetness and wave running... I am such a schnook for this kind of sentiment! And that's a GOOD THING. Congratulations to you and your finest mate there... sincere congrats. To Ballou too!

Congratulations to you and your wife Vigilante. In a world where divorce is rife (I believe 1 in 3 here in the UK) 40 years is quite an achievement. Continue on your course, you must be doing something right.
