Forty-fourth

August 2021 continues. It has taken a turn towards the sweet.


Last Friday was Elaine’s and my forty-fourth wedding anniversary. I searched the internet for information on exactly what anniversary the forty-fourth is. You know, like paper for the first, silver for the twenty-fifth, and gold for the fiftieth. My research only confused me.


According to the internet the forty-fifth anniversary in sapphire, that is self-explanatory. I know what a sapphire is. Elaine wouldn’t want one, and we didn’t have a forty-fifth anniversary, we were having our forty-fourth.
