just a wave


Be careful who you wave to. 

These days you must be careful, but 45 years ago times were different.

A wave could change your life.

When you meet your future on the side of the road at age 17, a wave could change the course of history.

Where would we be now if not for that simple gesture. Would we have met at all? Was it fate? Were we meant to be together and if not that dark night, maybe another time?

And was my 'biggest flirt' high school claim to fame the reason for the wave :)

A wave can be a catalyst, the beginning of what is now generations of kids and grand kids.

When just starting out back in 1971, the goal was not to grow old together, but it seems whether or not it was the goal, we have indeed achieved just that.

For better for worse, for richer, for poorer, yes it seems we have fulfilled all of those vows, with the in sickness and health one to be probably tested more in the future, until death do us part.

Another anniversary rolls around, and as my morning e-mail said:  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!   45 years of being together and 43 married.............let's go it again!

Just a wave started it all. Be careful who you wave to, it could change your life!

Happy Anniversary, Susan and Buddy! I love hearing stories of how folks meet and better yet, how they remain together and thrive as couples in spite of all the curve balls that come along.

Wishing you both a very happy Anniversary and many more wonderful years together.

Happy anniversary to you! We had our 44th last month (married) and 3 additional years of knowing each other. We met in a bar/restaurant where I played my guitar and sang.
