MY WIFE


If you've been coming here for any appreciable length of time (which is a puzzler, but I appreciate your mental illness) then you know that I always refer to MY WIFE as MY WIFE; that is, in capital letters. It is a form of respect.

The Boston Herald, which I am proud to be published in, does not allow me to put MY WIFE in all capitals. Oh, well. They pay me, so I won't get all pouty about it. Otherwise, they are remarkably accommodating of my peccadilloes (and I'm not even married to them.)

Anyway, today's piece in the Herald is mostly about MY WIFE. You should click onto this link and go read it. As a bonus, there's a story about me being a dope. What more could you want? Before you do, though, here is a selection of photographs and/or caricatures of MY WIFE, just in case you want to picture her while you're reading my love letter.

(There'll be another link later, so you don't worry about scrolling back up. I'm always thinking of your ease and comfort! Note: these are not in chronological or even logical order. Enjoy the random love!)



















Here's the link to the article, as promised. Thanks for stopping by!

Soon, with more better stuff.

Well, i'm going to quote the late Zig Ziglar. He used to tell friends of his, "I have no respect for a man who can't marry up, and I have a great deal of respect for you!"

Thanks for including the pictures, she's beautiful.

My wife leaves twice a year to work at a 4 day dance competition. I enjoy my bachelor time for about a day and a half.

She's the best wife you're ever going to get, Jim!

Truth. I like to think that I'm a sufficiently competent adult to manage my own life for a few days, if my wife is away (which, mercifully, doesn't happen very often). But my life is just better in every way when she's with me. And I'm very glad for that. Interdependence; it's a beautiful thing. . .

(Incidentally, some Eastern Orthodox Christians adopt the convention of always printing the name of their bishop in all caps, as an expression of honor and respect. Just like you do for YOUR WIFE. Which I've always appreciated about you, in an endearingly admirable way. . .)

and delightful story, Jim
I loved my wife very much too and now I keep a spare key in my wallet just in case I lock myself out . . . :)

I love the love between the two of you.
You are blessings to each other.
Happy Thanksgiving!

You must let YOUR WIFE know I've never seen anyone look so good in a hot pink wig. Awesome....
Have a great Thanksgiving!

House keys?
I can't remember when I stopped carrying them.
The house is locked, but I know the code for the garage door opener.
I am good as long as the power's on.
