The Suitcase Lady


January 2, 2019, 12:42 am

In the life of a marriage, the total time having sex, wonderful as it is, pales in comparison to the time spent living beside one’s spouse and not having sex. Fortunately for me, I figured this out before I was married.

Finding a mate with great intellectual curiosity was high on my list, and I must say that I hit the jackpot. In 54 years of marriage, my spouse and I have never lacked for interesting things to talk about.

My husband is always researching and working on multiple projects such as water sampling in the local creeks, building an automatic cat food feeder, improving his barista skills and piping the sound of the waves into the house to name a few.

I am usually completely aware of his current endeavors, but one of his recent projects came as a total surprise. For each of the past two years, he has compiled a list of interesting websites for the year. I saw this year’s list for the first time last week and had to stop myself from spending hours immediately checking out many of the articles listed. It is a true potpourri of cool stuff to savor.

I am sure you will find something that piques your curiosity as well. Robert Louis Stevenson got it right when he wrote, “The world is so full of a number of things, I am sure we should all be as happy as kings”.

Happy 2019!
