usweb.JPGThere is nothing like hearing your mother say, “What did you do to attract her?” Of course, anyone close to us nearly 30 years ago would have said the same thing. “Patty and Todd?”

If it makes anyone feel better I am willing to acknowledge the obvious. If I had a copy of the picture of us at the OKC Zoo from “back in the day” you would not wonder at all. For one of us it was love at first sight. For the other it was not so much.
This evening we will share dinner – and she will be surprised. About the time the server delivers our entre’ we will have been married 25 years. For those who want to flatter us and say, “Now that’s not possible,” we would retort that we were 13.

We are best friends. Everyone knows what that implies. We know the good, the bad, and the not so pretty. We have enjoyed quite a time. Blessed with two beautiful girls, a great son (in-law), and great friends we look forward to what lies ahead.

Patty may not read this – at least for a day or two. But, it should be noted here –

I love you.

  3. Kimberly says:

    I am so proud of the two of you. Growing up now it is not uncommon for parents to get a divorce and God has blessed me with two parents who have always been there for each other as well as for their kids! Thank you for being my parents and I look forward to seeing you two together for another 25 years I only missed the first 2 years so life has been pretty exciting. I love you two always and forever!!

  5. Todd…

    That’s a bit freaky…I have to hover over the link of the above comment’s author to figure out it wasn’t the owner of this blog, but another Todd.

    Thanks Todd H for a little confusion this morning!
