  • State of marriage address

    While out for our semi-regular Sunday drive, as I flipped through the radio stations I asked my husband what kind of music he liked.

    That's the kind of questions you ask on a first date, not after 34 years of marriage!

    I'm not sure what that says about the state of our marriage. You don't even know what kind of music your husband likes?

    Um, not exactly, although I have a good idea what he doesn't like. I can rule out heavy metal and polka and most music recorded after 1979.
