We met in a crowd of friends fourteen years ago today.

It took another full year to coax him into the apartment, but Barry very quickly became my life.

Sometimes, saying "congratulations" to someone on their anniversary feels cheap and slightly condescending. But relationships are a great work, and the tiny glimpses we get of yours always suggest a work of great strength and depth, always in progress and always to be admired.

Fourteen years, in the olden days, was the "ivory" anniversary. Happy ivory day.

What a sweet post. :-)


Dear Jim and Barry,

Congratulations. We hope your relationshjip lasts as long as ours has (thirty-seven and counting!).

Love, Den and Bob
