The Bronze Age

Obadiah Marcus and Rebekah Lucey June 4, 1994
Nineteen years of marriage is signified by the gift of bronze, so I patiently await Obi's inevitable arrival with an exact replica of "The Thinker" sticking out of the back of his Civic. Or flowers would be nice, from the yard. 

taken yesterday. or on our honeymoon, I can't remember

That mad rapper of the Bronze Age, my buddy Homer, put these words into the mouth of Silver-Tongued Odysseus:
There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people see eye to eye and keep house as man and wife, delighting their friends and confounding their enemies.

We two, confounding our enemies for nineteen years.
I love you, my darling.


  1. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! Wow, you were all arms and legs back then! But I think you look better now, mostly because I can't see your face in the before photos :)

  2. Congratulations!!!

    You are SO skinny in that first picture - you are STILL so skinny, but goodness the pre-children tinyness is crazy! And that priest's vestments + glasses are so early-90s :)
