35 Years

Memorial Day weekend my wife and I will celebrate 35 years of marriage. We have been together for 2/3rds of our lives. And she is still my Sweetheart; the only woman I ever want to be with.

How does one celebrate spending so much time together? In our case, Friday night we will spend with a few thousand baseball fans, watching an Omaha Royals baseball game with our grandchildren. After the game, we will head out to the car, grab our tent and sleeping bags, and head for the outfield to join several hundred others in the annual Girl/Boy Scout campout in Rosenblatt Stadium.

Saturday morning, we have just enough time to pack and load the van, before we have to head down to Platte River State Park, where the oldest grandson will be joining some other Scouts from his troop for a 10-mile hike, as part of their preparation for going to Philmont later this summer.

We hope to round out the weekend by going to see Night at the Museum II, without any grandkids in tow. Then we can use Monday to recuperate, so we can make it through the rest of the week.
