WE CELEBRATED the first stage of our two-weekend, 17th anniversary on Sunday by driving clockwise around the lake and stopping at the German restaurant.
I had German sausage and sauerkraut, and my child bride went for trout a lá pistachio. Both were above average. Next weekend, we’ll repeat the route to celebrate again but at a different joint. Lots of restaurants to be found out there, especially if you drive clockwise.
Seventeen years is a long time to be married, especially if it’s a third marriage, which it is for me but not for her. She’s not a repeat offender. I was married to my first wife a bit over five years, to my second a tad over 10 years though I lived with No. 2 about 19 years.
So we have another two years to top all relationship records for me.
I like being married. My head drifts and my heart cracks when I’m single. I tend to lose my mind. If I’d done it right in the first place, marrying a Mexican, my entire life would have been different. I highly recommend Mexican wives.
Mexican husbands, nah, not so much. I hear things.
