I'm so thankful that she married me back in 1961. She is the most wonderful wife a man could have. She's my wife, my love, my sweetheart, and my best friend. I love her dearly and hope we'll have many more years together.

Joke of the Day
This joke was told to me just a few days ago by my Dad.

He said they did a study to determine why men lived longer than women. He said the study uncovered the facts. The men really DID NOT live longer, It only seemed longer!
