Our daughter just sent us this card for our 41st wedding anniversary.

It is painfully honest.

Card

41st anniversary? Isn't that asbestos? Anthracite? Or maybe polyester? I forget.

My wife and I always say, "___ years and still haven't killed each other."

I forget too Graeme but I do recall it is the material Depends are made from.

Wow! I hadn't realised that! What a fortuitous coincidence. I have ordered their Special Anniversary Multi-Pack as a belated gift. ("Here you are, dear, I got you a wee present.")

Unfortunately, for year 42 the gift material is plywood. I suspect that coming up with a product in that material which would guarantee "All-Nite Peace of Mind and Personal Freshness" might be a challenge for anyone not holding a degree in sanitary engineering.

However for year 43 it is Sponge, so there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon.

And beyond that? Oh, the way things are going,  I think by then we will be spending the night in matching bathtubs with waterproof duvets.

@graeme-ogg A love story...of sorts....beautifully stated Graeme.

 

Just a thought; the 42 year present might be most effectively used as a divider??

Nice thought, but for the time being I think we'll just stick with our faithful barbed wire partition. It has served us well for a number of years now (although in our present condition I guess rust might start to be a problem).

Makes for a prickly situation all the same (less so if your back is to it) but practical all the same.  Perhaps an upgrade to electrifying it?

Not really necessary. I find the superficial flesh wounds provide an adequate deterrent.

Mind you, I will be stringing some rather attractive Xmas lights along the barrier any day now. My rather reserved nature doesn't entirely preclude a small seasonal romantic gesture.

You sir...are an ANIMAL!  Btw....you may want to delete "small".  Just sayin'......

I read "ANIMAL" as a term of heartfelt approval and moral solidarity, and I feel suitably gratified.

I note that your comment was actually posted 11 hours ago. It seems somehow appropriate that the responses to this topic have appeared in the form of occasional dribbles at odd moments, sometimes when least expected.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "In the wee small hours" . . .

Dew say Graeme!

You read correctly my friend.  It was stated with great approval, respect and...to be honest, a touch of jealousy.

I'm just waiting for somebody to say "Piss off the pair of you".
