The 20th Anniversary Song (a Hump Day Sing-a-Long)


Twenty years ago today, I married the love of my life.

For his love, loyalty, humor, calm demeanor, rational thought, adept check book skills and predictable fashion sense, I dedicate this Hump Day Sing-a-Long to my Hubzam.

The 20th Anniversary Song
[Sung to the tune of "Oh Say, Can You See?]

Oh say could you see 
Anyone else with me?
You put up with my junk, 
You're my domestic hunk

Today's anniversary
Will be kept so gift-free
We've bought cars, proms and trips -
Our "play" budget is zip.

But I'm fixing a meal
That will repair your zeal!
We can party all night
By the living room light.

Oh, say, are you wondering what all of this song might be for?
Just to say you're the best...and I'll take twenty more.

(Happy anniversary, Hubzam. I'm cooking all sorts of things that we should never eat, so don't dally.)

  7. Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    How sweet! Congratulations to the two of you on your 20th wedding anniversary! I'm going to consult the Guinness Book because, in today's society, 20 years might be a new record! It just so happens that Mrs. Shady and I will be celebrating our 20th two weeks from now. Have a wonderful anniversary and give thanks that you have each other. God bless!

    1. Shady, Shady, Shady...why are you copying me? I remember the day, twenty years ago, when I told you I was getting hitched and the way you jumped up and down, crying: "Me, too! Me, too!"

      "But you're an original, Shadyman; do you really want to follow in my much lamented footsteps?" I replied. You nodded and did a spectacular backflip. Glitter fell from the ceiling (I still can't figure that one out, but romance must have magic...).

      Well, we all know the answer to that one. Thank goodness that Kathy was a keeper! Let me be the first to say "Happy Anniversary" to you, too!

    1. I usually write at night. The next day, when Hubzam is at lunch, he will read my blog and email me with corrections (which I appreciate!). I tend to glaze over at night and I'm prone to typos and misuse of words I know during the day (there, their, your, you're...).

      Thanks, Linda!

    1. ...and visa versa. I could do much worse. Wait...I did, at one time.

      Hubzam is my perfect match. Poor Hubzam.
