Cinco de Mayo

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.
