Elvis still dead, marriage goes on

Back in 1977 on August 14th, Lynn and I tied the proverbial knot. We had a short honeymoon (we were soooooooooooooo broke) that ended two days later when Elvis died. The death of the King didn't really curtail our honeymoon so much as the lack of honeymoon financial endowment, but it did put a strange coda on an otherwise blissful connubilation.

On a silver lining note, I don't have any trouble remembering my anniversary.

This past Sunday (14th) I got to drink two bottles of magnesium citrate. If you don't know what that is...look it up. For most of my anniversaries I really try to 'clean up'. For this one, I cleaned out....Probably won't forget this one either...
