My father and mother were recently celebrating their 50th wedding
anniversary. While cutting the cake, my mother was moved after
seeing my fatherís eyes fill with tears. Mother took his arm, and
looked at him affectionately. "I never knew you were so
sentimental," she whispered.
"No, no," he said, choking back his tears, "thatís not it at all.
Remember when your father found us in the barn and told me to either
marry you or spend the next 50 years in jail?"
"Yes," my mother replied. "I remember it like yesterday."
"Well," said my father, "today I would have be a free man!"
