Twenty-Five years ago today Trisha and I exchanged wedding vows at the District Court House in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Surrounded by our families, sheriff deputies and even a couple of inmates, the presiding judge led us through a brief morning ceremony so we could all make it home in time to watch the 100-meter finals of the ’84 Summer Olympics. We had a marvelous afternoon with a reception in the shady back yard of our first home at 1561 Marian Drive in Ann Arbor.
We celebrated our 25th anniversary with a weekend at the Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, WA. Trisha got to spend a few days away from her University work and household tasks; we had an afternoon at the spa; and Sunday morning Trisha rode the golf cart with me for a delightful round of golf. The Suncadia course is a lovely setting meandering through the woods and we were the only people on the course so we enjoyed a tranquil few hours together taking in the delicious summer morning.
