Happy anniversary to us!

August 3rd, 2015 | Posted by jameswatkins in Uncategorized

Forty-one years ago today—August 3, 1974—Lois Farra and I were married at the Wesleyan church in Valton, Wisconsin. We’re heading off to the “big city” to celebrate, so some reruns today of past anniversary columns, pics, music and cartoons.

August 4 update: Our big anniversary celebration was kind of a bust. Lois wasn’t feeling well, I was distracted with an important meeting today, the food at the restaurant wasn’t exceptional, the hotel hot tub was broken with just one working jet—so we took turns sitting in front of it—and there was nothing good on TV. But, we’ve got each other! And that’s the whole point.

Columns
Falling in love . . . and getting back up
Fifty Shades of Beige (Reel v. real sex)
Top ten reasons I’m not divorcing my wife (1996)
Top ten secrets to staying married 30 years (2004)

Pics, videos and music
40th anniversary album (with captions)
40th anniversary video
Music from the video: Loving God and You (1973), Love in a Cruddy World (1972), Lois (1974)

And some cartoons
