HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, POP!


oh, sure - you all thought our anniversary was new year's eve...so did i...

for many years now, this date has held more water in our relationship - apparently it is the date of either our first date or our first kiss - and to think, i thought we kissed on our first date.

as nancpop so fondly likes to remind me, "what's it been now, 35 or so years?" could be - i went an entire year here awhile back thinking i was one year older than i was so when my birthday time of year rolled around - WHOOOOOOOOOOOPEEEEE - i was actually a year younger!

Lord, it is good being me! as you all know, pop is my ballast, my steady, my anchor, my lover and my best friend in the real world - there really is no better man perfectly suited to my quirky ways. you may ask, "yeah, but does he complete you?" and i respond, "well, remember that 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle you bought at a yard sale a few years ago and you worked on it for a solid month, only to get to the very end to find there was ONE STINKIN' PIECE missing?" need i say more? you just accept the puzzle as it is, imperfections and all so i said to him, "okay, you can stay..." or something like that...

my sincerest thanks to our hairdresser/photographer/magicman/possible reuter's employee - only he and two others hold the original to this particular shot. so far, only one person has threatened blackmail...

Our REAL anniversary is Feb. 10th, but we always note the passing of December 12th, the date of our first date.

I remember...when I asked for that date...my future completer answered..."With you?"

Brooke said...

Happy Annie!

I'll raise a toast to the two of you a bit later in the day, lest my hubby give me the "Don't you think it's a bit too early for that" look! ;)

LOL, Daddio!

Brooke said...

'Yall look radioactive!

LOL!

Kewl trick getting the comments to cross-post, too!

nanc said...

daddio - i love anniversary stories!

you just had to go and say that, brooke - guess i'd best put the irish creme and coffee away...

maybe i can get pop to come in later and say a few words on my behalf...nah!

I don't know the exact date of my husband's and my first kiss. He was hanging around for several months, so the first date just evolved.

Happy Other Anniversary, Nanc!

Steve Harkonnen said...

Many happy grats, but who is the green chick??

nanc said...

thank you, aow! sometimes we're still on our first date also...

steve - that would be sophia, green with envy, wishin' she could be me - i'm surprised you didn't know that - you lose the door prize.

nanc said...

p.s. there are some anniversaries we never celebrate.

Farmer John said...

Happy Anniversary!?!

I'm not sure we want to hear about the ones you don't celebrate. ;-) And I do love the picture of you two. You are positively glowing in your reflected love... but nancpop, I hope that's not your natural haircolor.

Mrs Farmer and my experience was more similar to daddio's. Needless to say, we don't celebrate the event.... just every day in between.

Farmer John said...

...and make mine a double 2, nanc. That's four shots for those keeping score!

nanc said...

nobody tell pop, but i got the best end of the deal!

yeeeeeeeeeeeehaw!

Hey Nanc, it's curtains for me over at Curtains. Blogger keeps rejecting me. (sob, sniff,)

I thought I'd try posting a message over here .

Thought 35 years sounded a bit strange, didn't think you were that old!
Nancpop is a real comedian eh? Lol...

Btw I see I am only a couple of years younger than you old mate! HeH hEh Heh..

PS How ya doin' Warren?

Anonymous said...

then who you callin' old, kathy?

hehehe!

nancgottago

Warren said...

I'm do'in fine Kathy.

I think Nanc and Nancpop got married when they were 12.

Strange things happen when you start counting the years. My mother used to be older than me and now she's only 39! Its difficult to explain how you got to be 16 years older than your mum when she used to be 19 years older than you.

I used to get older when I went in the liquor store. Now they don't seem to care how old I am... Go figure!

;^)

well, if that were true, warren - we must have hit a time warp as i'm eight years older than nancpop...hehehe...
