What An Incredible Video
1. I was doing a pretty good job keeping my Irish bladder* in check -- until he started talking about how his generation was dying off. He and my dad, z"l, would be the same age.
2. THEN I started thinking about how he was married for 69 years. I won't get 69 years with my beloved Myfanwe. But I'd like to. (I do realize that this would make us 99 and 97 years old.)
My fondest dream is, in our advanced years, to walk, hand-in-hand, to McDonald's once a week where we each have a Filet-O-Fish and split a diet coke and an order of fries. Then, as we prepare to leave, Myfanwe pulls the scarf around my neck and makes sure my coat is buttoned, and we leave to walk back home to listen to the news, have a pot of tea, and turn in early. I especially like the hand-in-hand part. I like holding her hand.
