Remember when we used to refer to the places we lived by their addresses? The house at 98 Manor Rd?.....when we lived at 7 Endicott?....
I was thinking about that today and it occurred to me this address doesn’t really lend itself to that kind of alliteration.
……Remember when we lived at 1234 north east eleventh place?
Too many syllables!
I wish you were here to hear my train of thought because I know you would get it.
On the one hand I wish you were still here. On the other hand I’m glad I didn’t have to see you sink into senility. Or suffer more pain and degradation with what the ‘medicos’ were doing to you.
Remember all the plans we had for when I would take early retirement?
The plans for shopping and lunches and taking the boys to fun places?
You almost made it.
I retired four months after you died.
It’s not at all like I thought it would be.
I miss you.
Wherever you are I hope you know I'm thinking about you more today.
