In 2011, Ann and I celebrated our 18th year of wedded bliss.
No, it’s never easy and we still have our struggles, most of which have to do with our finances now that I’m not making nearly the amount of money I used to.
Either way, we still have each other and that has to count for something. I’m not quite sure what I’d do without her nor who would have put up with me otherwise. With her being the introvert and me being just the opposite, we truly are a match that nobody would have ever thought was possible.
It’s for those reasons I’ve chosen this as today’s song.
Barry White – “My First, My Last, My Everything” (1974 for White’s version)
Lyrics aside, this song just kicks some major musical ass.
Oh, and one more thing: Barry. Fucking. White. Enough said.
The Manhattans — “Shining Star”
The Beatles — “Two of Us”
Me and Anthony would sing this song whenever we would be heading home from somewhere. It’s one of his favorite Beatles tunes.
