“And it was well worth it. Still is.”
Just accept it Janis. There isn’t much you can do about it.
I can relate to this. When we we younger and single, my wife was absolutely gorgeous…like Arlo said, way out of my league. She was working in a medical office at the time, and one of the doctors was VERY interested in her…asked her out several times. For some reason she decided to spend her life with a divorced aircraft mechanic. There are still women that choose love over money….thankfully.
Arlo usually knows what to say – well, most of the time!
I hate getting old, too. But I’m not all that enthusiastic about the only alternative, either.
sad – he said he ‘had’ to work at it. Better keep working at it to keep her, and the same for her.
I wonder how many others have had her
You still have that old magic Arlo. You must have to get away with that misstep of a response.
Face it Arlo…..She settled.
My Mother-in-law always said, “Growing old is not for wimps. But, considering the alternative, I’ll grow old!” I agreed with her then, and I really agree with her now that incipient old age is upon me!!!
True love. True, real-world love.
And look at what your hard work got you, Arlo.
What am I saying. Arlo doesn’t need any encouragement to look.
A league of his own….
I got one way out of my league, too. We’ve been together now 36 years. She doesn’t look exactly like my new bride, but the person is in there, and I still think I’m out of my league. And I still can’t believe I got her and got to keep her.
Max – Yep, same thing here, but my mind’s eye is 40 years out of date. 8^)
Who she is and how she looks right now is who she really is. She should make the best of what she has today.
