37 Years Ago

Hello again everyone.

I can’t believe that Mariann and I have been married for 37 years!  I really can’t.  It seems like yesterday that she and I posed for this photo.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles A. James

Notice that neither of us have aged at all.  And what a fine looking couple we are.

I am so lucky to have married my best friend and that after 37 years we are still best friends.  We have the bestest daughters anyone could ask for.  We also have the CUTEST granddaughter ever!  So blessed.  And so happy after all these years.  (I think there is a Paul Simon song about being so crazy after all these years … but we’re not crazy … not yet at least.)

Our plan is to have a quiet dinner tonite at our favorite Italian restaurant, Kemolls.  There we will reminisce all of the good times we have had over the past 40 plus years since we first met at Shakey’s Pizza somewhere across State Line Road in Kansas.  At that time, Mariann was smitten with my good friend, Vince Spallo.  Vince was much closer to Mariann’s height than I was.  And he was Italian.  And they knew each other from an earlier time so Vince could introduce us.

From then to now seems like a flash.  Tonite we plan to slow it down and savor the moment!  Love you, Mariann.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned.

  1. The Mur & I have some pretty damn good role model couples to look up to. My parents are a couple years behind you two, just reaching 30 this year! Blessings to you and I hope your dinner was fantastic!!
