Thirty-Seven Years

Thirty-Seven years ago today, just about now, Bob and I were saying "I do" to each other, in a friend's livingroom.

My mother and brother traveled from Canada to be there. My mother brought me the wedding gown in which she'd married my father. It fit, and I wore it.

Friends came to the wedding; friends made the wedding possible, with livingroom, a sheet cake bought by a friend, a small buffet made by the same wonderful woman who'd lent us her home, and hammer dulcimer music by one of Bob's fellow musicians. A friend married us, and we didn't mention to Mum that he'd been ordained in the back of his cab as a tip. 

Later that evening, carolers knocked on the door, and we invited them in to sing. Bob rubbed the pot roast all over his chest. And we were married. 

It was the best choice I ever made. Better, worse, sick, healthy, always together, and better together. 

I love you, Bob. Thank you for being my husband.

And here: have a ridiculously over-sized picture of us in our long-ago dissolute youth, the same year we traveled to Winnipeg.

MyGuy had those glasses as well, when we got married in 1980.

Great photo.

I was thinking about your visit the other day. I still remember the wonderful harmonies you guys added to the Robert Earl Keen Jr tune I was singing.

I think it was... 1986... my first con was in 1983 (the Baltimore Worldcon). Keycon started in 1984 and I think it was the 3rd Keycon. Was Anne McCaffery the guest of honour? If so then it was 1986.

What else to give a girl from the Maritimes?

My timeline was way off but 1991 makes more sense. I don't think I was even playing guitar in 1986, or barely if I was.
