Funky Old Dude Still Married After 52 Years - A Love Story

A Toast to Bob and Ann
A few days ago I wrote this story about some of the things I'm thankful for, like my wife and kids. Let me give you a very brief recap. I met my wife online. We were friends for quite a while before we actually met face to face. The rest is, as they say, history. I have been with Heather for six years now, so I guess those dipsticks that said she and I would last three months have been proven wrong.

A friend of mine, Bob Zeller at Texas Tweeties, can be beat my record by a few years, By a few, I mean he beats me by forty-six years! And he did it the old fashioned way. By way of the United States Postal Service.

I asked Bob just after I posted my story about meeting Heather to tell me the story of how he met Ann, his wife of FIFTY-TWO years! 
In Bob's own words, here's his tale of romance. It's a great read, so please take a few minutes to read aboutan amazing love story that is 52 years young and still kickin' ass and takin' names. This is one of the best stories ever told. I promise.


  1. Thanks for posting that link, Toby. Ann liked it, but chewed on me for not telling the complete story, as I left out a few more details. Such as an old musician friend wanting me to play the sax at a night club on that Saturday after the wedding rehearsal. Maybe some day there will be another installment. But I'd rather wait for the movie. :-)


    P.S. I know you're asking, did I go?? Play the sax?? Of course......

  2. LMAO I look forward to "Funky Old Dude - The Movie". :)
