Gather ’round, kids, I’m going to tell you a little story. Today is a very special day. It’s Cinco de Mayo. What is Cinco de Mayo, you ask? It’s a Mexican holiday, but that’s not really part of this story. Today is special for another reason.
Many, many days ago — 1,461 days ago to be exact — I found myself in Kohler, Wisconsin, at a hotel called “The American Club“. It’s a very nice hotel, with beautiful gardens and fountains and furniture and just about everything else a 5-diamond hotel should have. I was there with a few friends for a special gathering.
On May 5, 2001, I was blessed to be able to marry my wife, Kelly. It was a wonderful day, and there have been many wonderful days since — almost 1,461 of them.
In celebration of that day, 208.71 weeks ago, I am taking my wife to dinner tonight at a new restaurant in Brookfield, BRAVO! Cucina Italiana. Feel free to wish us a happy 4th anniversary, but, whether you do or not, it will be happy.
P.S., I’d also like to wish a happy 1st anniversary to Brian and Belinda Tinkler, who celebrated their day yesterday, and will be celebrating another special day in about a month — the birth of their son.
