20

Well, today is the day! Twenty years ago my fiance came to my workplace and told me he had just received his orders to join his National Guard unit for immediate deployment as part of Operation Desert Storm. I told my boss (who happened to be Gator's best friend) that I was leaving for the day and Gator and I went to the courthouse and got married. The judge who married us was hearing an apparently protracted case and he called a recess so he could perform the ceremony. He left the courtroom saying, "I'm sorry, I have something better to do." It was a palimony case. Thanks, Judge Bruce Normile. We're still going strong.

Also, Happy Birthday Aunt Judy, Laura, Curt and Mori. Lot's of good stuff happened on this day. :)
