As time goes by….

Today marks a very special day in my life. It is the 10th anniversary of my wife and my first date. Now if my memory serves me correct (luckily I have remembered the date), it was a no expenses spared, extravagant affair.

 So how did we meet?? 

We met in Canberra.

We actually were set up on a ‘not quite a blind date’. I say not so blind date as we had met each other briefly as we both worked in the same building. We had mutual friends who after reneging on the promise of a double date, we took matter into our own hands and took the plunge.

I was working for an Optus franchise and through my contacts with the local radio station I was given two free tickets to that high quality film, ‘Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion’. Afterwards I took her to the restaurant my brother worked at for a sumptuous meal of garlic bread and a bottle of Friscatti. 

So the night ended up costing me roughly $1.25 in petrol. But like all good things I recieved more than I gave. What I gained was that on that night I had discovered my first and only true love. As I drove her home, I had a feeling that this would last as long as the sun would shine.

The fact that she pashed me in a big way at her door step also gave me a hint…. 

In those 10 years we have achieved a lot together, our best achievement is our son, whom we love and cherish as much as we love and cherish each other.   So to my darling wife, happy anniversary, I love you…. Dave

Chuck Norris Facts

Fact # 73 Chuck Norris was the fourth Wise man. He brought baby Jesus the gift of "beard". Jesus wore it proudly to his dying day. The other Wise men, jealous of Jesus' obvious gift favouritism, used their combined influence to have Chuck omitted from the Bible. Shortly after all three died of roundhouse kick related deaths.
