The Grateful Thread
Today I am especially, specially grateful that I met my wife 18 years ago, that we got together 15 years ago and that we have been married for 10 years as of today! She has the patience of a saint, a heart of gold, and fortunately for me, she does tolerate fools gladly!
This was our first dance - get it?!?

Through strength and knowledge I gain victory
Through victory I gain peace and harmony
Through peace and harmony my chains are broken

After too long without a home of my own I'm now a month away from having my own place again. Can't describe how good that feels
Scholars teach in Universities
And claim that they're smart and cunning
Tell them find a cure when we sneeze
And that's when their nose start running
