Forty two years ago today, Eileen and I walked from the small cabin we were living to a nearby park on Houghton Lake to get married.
I was playing at the Argonaut Bar with a band.
I believe at this point we were playing weekends.
That meant that Eileen and I had a few week days for our honeymoon in Mackinaw Island.
My Dad married us. Eileen’s parents refused to come to the wedding because we were living in sin.
Many friends and family members attended.
Finding Eileen as a life partner was the best thing that ever happened to me.
To this day I enjoy her company and find her charming. Lucky me, eh?
