Want to see a picture of the happiest couple I know? Look up there. (It’s the two on the right, by the way.)
We share the date of September 24 — my birthday, their wedding anniversary — and we shared it in person this year, with a quick shooting session that didn’t include an uncountable 200 that were not recorded when the $#&**$% camera ran out of memory toward the end.
Clarification: It was the $#&**$% camera operator’s fault, not the camera’s.
In other words, 1,450 made, but just 1,250 recorded, and thereby counted toward the goal.
So coincidentally, on my 44th birthday, Jim was in on his 44,000th made free throw. And the happiest couple I know turned 17 as a pair.
