June 9, 1979


The year was 1979 and here is a sampling of what was going on.

Sony introduced the Walkman... for $200.00

John Wayne died of lung cancer.

The NBA adopted the three point shot.

The Post-it note was introduced.

Gas was .86 a gallon... plus the little nine tenths.

We were listening to The Village People, The Police, Rod Stewart and The Eagles.

The big movies were The Deer Hunter, Moonraker, and Kramer vs. Kramer.

On television we watched M*A*S*H, Happy Days, Dallas, and The Love Boat.

And I got married. To the best woman in the world.

But in reality, we were just kids. I was a fresh faced 20 years old and Michele was 18, but as far as we were concerned, we were in love and that was all that mattered.

Today we are celebrating 30 years of marriage.

Thanks Michele for being an incredible friend, helper, confidant, and a thousand other things. I never imagined way back then it would be this good.

Here are a few pictures from the best day of my life. And yes, that color, perfect for the 70's, is baby blue!





I love you Michele... Happy 30th Anniversary!
