Wife: Do you know what today is?

Me: Duh! April 8th!

Wife: And....

Me: Ummm, Oh yeah! This is easy! GrandPa's Birthday! (he is 75 today,
I think)

Wife: yes, but that wasn't what I was thinking, try again.

Me: Mmmm.. Oh yeah! The Masters are on this weekend! Go Lefty!!!

Wife: NO!! Try again!

Me: Ahh Man... Mmmm.. I got it! It's the Annual Old Car Portland Swap Meet!!

Wife: WHAT!! NO!! YOU HAD BETTER GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME!!!!

Me: Uh Oh!

Then I give her my I gotcha smile. She calls me a chump!! Of Course I know what today is!! It is our 17th wedding anniversary!! Wow, 17 years!! It has gone by soo fast!

Honey, I love you sooo much!! Just like everyone else we have had our troubles! But, through those troubles our love has grown for each other! There is no one anywhere that I would rather be married to! You are amazing! What a wonderful wife, and mother to our children you have been!! I look forward to many, many more years together! I enjoyed the few days that we spent at the coast!! I love you!!

Ditto Joe Cool. I have a natural aversion to marriage, but I am glad you two are happy, and I hope y'all have many more happy annys together.

Oh, and Phil did go, didn't he. I thought Tiger was gonna get him again until he missed that six footer to go to -3. I was pulling for Couples, but he just couldn't get the putts to fall. Stupid Putter!
