Mrs. Shankster and I are celebrating our 13th anniversary today.

Been nothing but joy so far. Wouldn’t be where I am without her. Can’t wait for the next 13, and then the following 13 and so on.

Congrats! As you've probably realized 13 goes by quickly, the next 13 will go by even faster. Take it from someone who knows.

Well, the wife was outside mowing the lawn, and I was at the grocery store. I get the notification on my phone that someone is at our front door. I check the app, and it’s just normal UPS drop-off. I get home from the grocery store and see a box on a chair. It’s a Perfect Practice Putting Mat, no box covering it, just sitting there plain as day. The 13 yr old daughter says, “Daddy, you got a package.” Knowing that I didn’t order it, I realize my Father’s Day gift from the wife has now been spoiled! Ugh. She comes in from mowing, sees it, and is not happy. “They couldn’t put it in a box?!” So, I got my gift a week early!!!! [emoji3]

Yup!! It’s more of a news pamphlet. The only section I read is Sports so I haven’t seen it in 3 months. SWMBO still looks at it daily and this morning she told me that there was a real Section today.
Gotta remember this is Ole People area who still read papers not SM.

I remember reading the paper with my Dad back in the 70s and 80s. Lord knows, after a game, I had to beat him to the sports section. I usually perused through the sports articles and recaps, checked the standings for my teams, and then right to the “funnies”, or comics. Ahh. The good old days!

Speaking of anniversary's, we celebrated our 25th last weekend. I know most on here aren't on my FB page, so here's "our story" that I shared, it's golf related, so you might enjoy it, even though it's a bit of a read!
 
I know most on here aren't on my FB friends page, so here's "our story" I shared there.
25 years ago last week, a couple female friends and I were sitting around in their apartment. We were lamenting the fact that none of us had a date that Saturday night. Well after a couple bottles of wine, someone came up with the idea that we should all place an ad in one of the local classified dating sections. This was before Match com or really any dot com for that matter.   We had to call an 800 number and leave the recorded AD. Mine said something about liking Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain 1f60e.png. Ok not really, but I'm sure it was something very cliche'ish. I'm not sure if they ever actually recorded their ads or just laughed at me for actually doing it. In any case, after sleeping it off the next morning, I had forgotten about it. I left on Monday for a work trip.   When I got back I had received about a dozen voicemails from my ad on my answering machine. I actually reached out to a couple but only three of them led to an actual "let's meet". The first two were forgettable and never led to a second date. The third one was much different. It was from a Michelle who was unsure if she wanted to actually go through with meeting. It took some convincing but we met at the now closed White Flint Mall.   We had a brief lunch in the food court and in my nervousness I put crackers in my ice tea instead of my soup 1f926_200d_2642.png. She acted like she didn't notice and I of course acted as if that's how I drink my ice tea1f609.png   Well that led to a second date a couple nights later. Then the big event. She invited me to their Fathers Day brunch a week later. It was going really well. Some of you know what else occurs on Fathers Day. Yep, the final round of the US Open. And most of you on this page know of my slight interest in golf 1f602.png1f602.png. So on a restroom trip I stopped at the bar to check out the leader-board. Well I lost track of time and next I thing I knew Michelle was standing next to me asking if everything was ok. She was worried I wasn't enjoying the lunch. It was then and there she found out that golf was a major part of what I enjoy. She has been understanding and supportive of that addiction which ultimately has become my career.   I knew then I had someone special. And for 24 years our anniversary often revolved around me being able to watch or in some years attend the US Open. We always manage to get a special trip or just a nice dinner in as well.   In 25 years we have been through job losses/changes, deaths of our fathers, my mother, multiple surgeries for each of us, a couple household moves and now a global pandemic. But also, fortunately more great times and laughs than either of us can remember.   Michelle is a very private person who doesn't like being the center of attention. So instead of posting a picture of her wonderful smile. I'll share a picture of a place that has held many of those wonderful memories for us. A place we had intended to celebrate our 25th year together. But it'll have to wait for a time where we will be able to enjoy it to its fullest.   I'm so lucky to have had her by my side for all these years. I couldn't have found a better person to share my love with and to love me unconditionally. For that I consider myself luckier than I ever could have imagined. I can't wait for the next 25 years.

Wow!!! An actual ad!!! Almost like “Sleepless in Seattle”!!! [emoji23] Great story! Congratulations, and God bless you both!

I seriously thought this said mullet putters the first time I read it.  Thanks, 2020.

Rob, if there is a real life paper still in your area, you should surprise her with a 25th classified ad!
