    I have a standard reply when my bride poses that question to me. I remind her that I was attracted to her because she was a woman of “substance” not one of these anorexic model types. I tell her: " I love you just the way you are, mi chiquita gordita ! "

    Truth be told, she looks pretty damn good for a 58 year-old grandmother !

    The closets were very small in our house, so the clothing hung in them, rotated seasonally – with the ‘out-of-season’ clothes relegated to hang on racks in garment bags, in the basement.

    Poor dad, he tried to store some of his clothes – sports coats, suits, shirts, ties etc. in my closet, while I was away at school. Problem wasn’t just fighting for closet space, when I’d come home on vacation, but at that time, we both wore the same sizes !

    First up was the best dressed !
