Happy Birthday Aubrey!

Goofy Franzone TroopIt’s my beautiful bride’s birthday today, so I would like to wish her a Happy Birthday!

I remember one time when Aubrey and I were dating during our days at Pensacola Junior College. We had gone to a recital at the school and she rode with me. It was time for me to take her home which was over the I-10 bridge East to Milton. We were talking about this and that and I said somewhat jokingly, “Hey, let’s just run off to Tallahassee!” She said, “OK, let’s do it.” So we drove right past the exit to Avalon Blvd in Milton and headed East. Of course both of us had enough combined common sense to know that this would not be a good idea. We only rode as far as Crestview and then turned back. It was kind of exciting though to think about being young and impetuous and running off on an adventure together.

Well, baby we did finally make it to Tallahassee! And beyond. Life with you has been the greatest adventure I could ever have hoped for and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Happy Birthday, baby. I love you.
