40TH ANNIVERSARY

Today is my parents’40th wedding anniversary. They’ve been able to hold it together for four decades, which in this day and age of 40 day marriages, is quite an accomplishment. I know it hasn’t been easy, especially if you factor having me as a son into the whole equation but they’ve made it this far. My sister, her husband, and I took my parents out to a wonderful dinner on Friday. We dined on various meats that came from animals that lived on the land and in the sea. There was also a cake in the end. Strangely enough, the restaurant just assumed it was a birthday cake even though it clearly said “happy anniversary” on the top.

I know September 11 has a different meaning to most other people but to me, it will always be the day my parents got hitched and instantly were in a more favourable tax position.
