Yesterday was our fifth anniversary. Leslie and I celebrated with a very nice dinner out. One we had to get all dressed up for, very special.
While it was our fifth wedding anniversary, we've actually known each other for twelve years, and have been together for most of that time. We met in a summer astronomy class at UC Santa Cruz in June of 1989. As the Rabbi at our wedding put it, "They met in astronomy class, and they saw stars."
Actually, it was more like I just thought she was cute, and she thought I might be smart enough to help her with the homework. Eventually, we both got what we wanted.
Also, very exciting book news: John Irving's new novel, "The Fourth Hand," will be out on July 3. You can pre-order it from Amazon, if you're afraid you'll forget to pick it up locally on that day.
