She Remembered Our Anniversary

I can't believe how quickly time passes. It seems like just yesterday we got together. Who knew that I'd fall so hard so fast for her. And it's not just because she's beautiful. I know I can rely on her and there's no denying it; she's a hell of a lot of fun to ride.

I've owned my motorcycle for a year now. Last week Deb handed me a card from my motorcycle that reminded me that our love affair has lasted 12 months.

This cracked me up.

Then Deb came downstairs with a garment bag. She got me the summer weight, armored jacket I had been looking at and trying on for months at the motorcycle shop.

This won my heart.

This isn't the first motorcycle jacket I've received from her. The coat that Deb got me for Christmas last year is great. It has an amazing amount of vents and zippers and removable layers. The problem is it's Cordura and there's little or no air flow through the material. Wonderful for winter, but this past summer if I wasn't moving at a decent clip I would bake in my motorcycle jacket. But I promised I would wear my armor and I'd rather sweat a little than not ride.

So now, thanks to my wife, I'm a man for all seasons.

There's a picture of me in my new jacket in the photostream if you're curious. You'll notice, Deb's gift matches my helmet. She says that's just a happy coincidence. I say it's just further evidence my wife rocks.
