Happy Anniversary to me.

Yesterday was the three year anniversary of my marriage to Anne. It’s funny how it doesn’t seem that long ago and at the same time feels like we’ve been married a lot longer than that. Our marriage isn’t without its challenges and we’ve hit our share of bumps along the way, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’m truly lucky she’s a part of my life.

Anne came up to my job yesterday so we could go out to lunch together, she brought me three roses to pin to my shirt, and I ended up taking the rest of the day off so we could go hang out at The Henry Ford museum. Then later we went out for a nice family dinner at Baker’s Square. Nothing too fancy, but we had a good time just spending time with each other.

Happy anniversary to my sweetheart. I’m looking forward to many more yet to come.

  1. Well look at that! I hadn’t checked the form using IE yet. It looked fine under Firefox so I didn’t think to make sure it was OK under IE. I’ll check the code and fix it.

  2. Congrats!!! You *did* know that the 3rd is the LEATHER Anniversay didn’t you? 

  3. No, I didn’t know that actually. I meant to look it up beforehand, but never got around to it. Hmmmm. Leather, eh? That has possibilities…

  4. I thought it would. Take advantage while you can as next year it is fruit and flowers. Fun but not as interseting as leather!

  5. Congrats to you and Mrs Bastard…er Anne.

    May you have many more happy and stimulating years together!

    Love Tish

  6. Congrats.

    I took the time to examine your other sites. Are you ever updating your Jenkin’s online website? I am surprised that your daughter know about the Japanese cartoon Ranma 1/2. Watched it many years ago. Perhaps the only Japanese cartoon that I liked. Depending on one’s point of view, the cartoon is a child’s mini intro to the issue of homosexuality, maybe, sort of, maybe not. For those not too sure what is it about, it is basically a story of this guy who turns into a woman whenever he touches cold water.

  7. Pop Tarts said - …it is basically a story of this guy who turns into a woman whenever he touches cold water.

    So that explains some of the guys I see at the clubs. Who would have guessed that all you need to do is throw some warm water on them!

  8. No brock, he turns into a girl when he touches cold water and turns back into a boy when he touches warm water.

    Really funny cartoon. There is this other guy in the cartoon who is in ‘love’ with the girl.

    Come to think of it, depending on your point of view, this cartoon may not be all too suited for kids, since there is this other character who goes round stealing panties.

    Just to a search on google and you will find tons of info on it. Although I did not read the comic, I just watched the cartoon series which is sort of based on the comic.

  9. Les…my thirty one year with Wendy is grand.  If nothing else we are friends and that is as BIG as our two children: Philip (25) and Taylor (21).  I am friends with her friends and my friends are hers…cool!  Best always.

  10. PT, I have to admit that we’ve been pretty bad about updating the Jenkins Online blog. I had originally set it up expecting Anne to use it more than I because she tends to be the one who keeps everyone up on what we’re doing as a family. Neither one of us uses it much. I keep meaning to, but I never get around to it.

    Ranma 1/2 isn’t aimed at children. It’s a shonen comic aimed at teen boys and the anime is the same. It was a very popular prime time series in Japan as I understand it. More characters in the series change form than just Ranma, though he does indeed turn into a girl when splashed with cold water while his father, Genma, turns into a panda. It’s all the result of falling into different springs at a cursed training ground. Basically, if you fall into one of the springs from that point on you will turn into whatever drowned in that spring at some point in the past. Other characters also fall victim to this curse and change into things such as a piglet, a cat, a duck and more. At least one character in the course of the series changes into more than one form at random. Ranma 1/2 is, at its heart, a romantic comedy/action series that takes the idea of a love triangle and stretches it into whole new shapes that leave the average American soap operas green with envy.
