May 15, 2022 is 30 years that the Dragon Lady and I have been married. There wasn’t a conventional wedding. We went to the courthouse in Lipscomb, TX and got hitched. We told our parents afterwards. Some said that it was about time, since we already had a two year old daughter. Might not have been the proper start but I know a lot of people that started out under better conditions and they didn’t make it to 30.
Last week, I went to the flower store. I told them that I wanted an arrangement that had 30 roses in it. One lady was like, “That’s going to cost a lot!” So. I picked out some red roses, some white roses and some white roses that had red tips. The owner took care of the floral arrangement. When I went to pick them up, she was like, “Kelln, you know that you don’t have to buy her anything. Just the fact that you remembered will be present enough.” You are right. Then I headed to the jewelry store.
Sunday, May 15 found us at O’Brate Field watching Okie State baseball versus Texas Tech. This was supposed to be a wicked cool day as we have a former student that plays for OSU and another one that pitches for Tech. Well, the Techster is on the injured list for another week. And the Cowboy didn’t get to start but he hit well once they put him in the game. That is a phenomenal venue to watch baseball.
And we ALMOST didn’t make it to 30. Friday, May 13 found me needing some help sorting cows & calves. I knew not to ask her for help but there was nobody else available. For the most part it went fine. But then at the end, she just couldn’t follow directions. Whew!! We made it through it.
Congrats to all of you that make it to milestone wedding anniversaries. It’s probably a good thing that I don’t have many goats around. We might make it for a few more.
