Thank you Donny, and Barnyard too! Thirty-Eight years ago yesterday, a cocky high school kid got to know a beautiful young lady from another school. We spent the afternoon walking in the park, had dinner at the local Pizza Hut, then went to a high school dance that night. The whole day was Jeanine's idea, and our relationship started with her invitation through a common friend to a Sadie Hawkins dance. The truth of the matter is that I was the luckiest guy in the world, and I knew it. The next day I told my best buddy I had met the woman with whom I'd spend the rest of my life. Three years later that same buddy stood by my side as best man when Jeanine became my wife!
So although April 12th is our "official" anniversary, JR and I always celebrate the true beginning of our relationship with a date--just the two of us--with a quiet evening together. It's the night we stop amid all the noise and haste to remind each other that we're in this together, through thick and thin. And yes
...ole Corky is
the luckiest guy in the world!
