April 19, 1974

This date, 4/19/1974, shall live in infamy.

Yep that is one of the most important days of my life.

That day is 38 years ago yesterday, and yesterday is the first time in 38 years that I have forgotten what that day is all about.

Well at least until I finally got home from work and that woman I live with told me about it.

Viola and I said those famous words, 38 years ago, in downtown Kansas City, Missouri with Chief and Mrs. A. Gooch in attendance. I seem to remember Viola saying "I do" and then I was asked do I, and I said something to the effect of "I do what"? When I got hit in the back and told to say I do. I did and boy am I ever happy I said, I do.

WE have been through some bad times (when I was at sea) and a whole bunch of good times.

Viola has followed me from Kansas City to
Peculiar, MO -
San Diego, Calif -
El Cajon, Calif -
Gales Ferry, Conn -
Agana, Guam -
Hong Kong, China
Honolulu, Hawaii -
Springfield, MO -
Republic, MO -
Shell Knob, MO -
Aurora, Mo -'
Marionville, MO
St. Augustine Beach, Florida

heck of a lot of moving around the world, but we were always together (except when I was at sea on subs or the Proteus or in Japan with the Fleet Hospitals.)

Will I do it again, don't even need to ask -

So as we start our 39th year together, love to you - wall to wall and tree top tall.

Love ya Viola.
