Salud the Moristotles!

Today is the forty-first anniversary of the Moristotles' wedding in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, the informal ceremony witnessed by their friends Jim and Carole Sue. May there be many, many more anniversaries—especially as their years together only get better.
They are, simply put, just a couple of old lovers,
Who're blessed that over them a good spirit hovers
    To keep them laughing like children
    That they continually will then
Be still rolling like thunder under the covers.
[Thank you, Elton John.]


  1. mazel tov mobro :-), you are about the only couple we know that beats us!! at 26 years, and counting and when the Padres (his) beat the Dodgers (mine), i'm REALLY counting :-(

  2. Congrats on the long lasting enjoyment. May you spend another 40 together.

  3. Peace Morris,
    This is really late, but congrats! Next is a series of posts on how you managed that beautiful longevity...with the divorce rates so high and marital bonds so flimsy its indeed rare to come across people who have lasted so long. (pardon my cynicism.)

    I wish you many more blessed and happy years together.

  4. I think our secret, Maliha, is that we didn't exactly "manage" it! There were some falls along the way. I guess we survived them and persevered to our "ripe old" status by being forgiving and understanding....
