This'll make you laugh ...
For Valentine's Day — no mawkish pink fluffy hearts or maudlin soft-focus pics of roses.
Just a shot of Les and Dave, 1983, on our honeymoon, May 1983, in the house of our best friends, Dave and Cathy, in Cold Spring, NY.
We look a bit jet-lagged, and probably were. By this point we'd had two weeks in Rome (note my sensational Italian loafers), two weeks in Egypt, a few days in England and still had two or three weeks in the US to go before our return via Sydney.
When Cathy sent me this pic that she'd unearthed last year, she remarked on how impossibly young we were. But I'm more staggered by how incredibly thin we were! Coffee and nicotine will do that ...
For our 30th-or-so Valentine's Day together, David brought me a bowl of Cheerios with exactly 13 grapes and low-fat milk, and in return I'm going to be tidying the kitchen.
Livin' the dream.
