As we remember and calculate things Margaret and I announced our engagement forty years ago today.
We got married the following year in July.
Longish engagements aren’t a great idea, but we wanted everyone to have enough time to come around to the idea.
Here’s a song that says it pretty perfectly.
In You Came, as recorded by The Petersens, with paterfamilias Jon on lead vocal.
The subject of the song is about Jesus.
But I think it sums up the person I’m married to.
