Hi, OT. It's our anniversary soon and I started thinking of all the years - where have they gone??? Mind, it has been great. That in turn reminded me of the old joke. --- the old ones are still the best. A recently married couple - well only 40 years married - were celebrating. THEN!!! enter and enjoy. cheers.

40 years of Marriage ------ A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table.. She said, 'For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.' The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands. The husband thought for a moment: 'Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me. The wife and the fairy were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish. So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!...the husband became 92 years old. The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful bastards should remember fairies are female...... SEND THIS TO A WOMAN WHO NEEDS A GOOD LAUGH !!!!!!. AND TO ANY MAN WHO CAN HANDLE IT!

That's a good one, Don! Thanks for the laugh! The years sort of all meld together, don't they! All of a sudden, it seems, and there's 40 years (or + in my case!)!
