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.
