Today the most beautiful and amazing woman I have ever known celebrates her birthday. My darling Miss Terry starts another year around the sun, but in reality I am the one who gets the present, because I get to make the trip with her. I am beyond thrilled and humbled (and more than a little bit mystified) that out of all of the men in the world, for some crazy reason she has chosen to spend her life with me. She is not only my wife, she is also my very best friend.

Besides being beautiful, intelligent, and talented in so many ways, Terry is also one of the nicest people that you will ever meet. She truly loves everyone and she would do anything she could to help out a friend or a stranger. That’s just one of the many reasons I am absolutely head over heels in love with my wife and I adore her.

We’ve been together for almost 26 years now and every day I think I could not possibly love her any more than I do at that moment, but the next day I realize I love her even more. The very first thing we say to each other every morning is “I love you” and it’s the last thing we say to each other as we fall asleep every night. But I’m going to say it again, right now. I love you with all of my heart, Terry. Happy birthday, sweetheart.

June 22 is apparently a popular day for amazing women to be born, because it was also my mother’s birthday. Don’t try to psychoanalyze me, my mom was gone for many years before Terry and I got together, and it wasn’t until afterward that I realized they have the same birthday. Besides, if you can figure out what’s going inside my head, you’re probably the one that needs to see a shrink.

It’s Thursday, so it’s time for a new Free Drawing. This week’s prize is a copy of the new hardcover edition of the RV camping journal donated by Barbara House. Barbara makes several variations of these, and they all have pages where you can list the date, weather, where you traveled to and from that day, beginning and ending mileage, campground information including amenities at RV sites, a place for campground reviews, room to record activities, people met along the way, reminders of places to see and things to do the next time you’re in the area, and a page for notes for each day.

To enter, click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name (first and last) in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books and audiobooks to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

Thought For The Day Today is the oldest you have been, and the youngest you will ever be. Make the most of it!
