My Valentine

Karen and PhilInspired by the example of my friend Kirby Larson who posted her prom picture on her blog, and being that it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share a photo of me and the love of my life. It’s not a prom picture—I wasn’t lucky enough to know Phil that long ago—but was taken a couple of days after our wedding in 1969. Forty years ago. We do look a little different now but we’re much smarter. So Happy Valentine’s Day to Philip, also called Philadelphia or Philbert or Philodendron or Philabuster, depending on my mood, but never Dr. Phil.
