In less than a week my dear wife Joan and myself will celebrate 55 years of (they say) wedded bliss. I put a different connotation to that word ‘bliss’ where marriage is concerned.
Now, don’t get me wrong. It has been a beautiful and exciting journey so far. Courtship was great, engagement even greater. Marriage, with all its ups and downs, was and is a vastly different affair.
