Chuck and Judy
I attended the 50th anniversary celebration for Chuck and Judy at Papa Cristo’s. Everything was delicious; the salty olives rolling around the plates as they were placed, the other couples seated around me that were nearing their own 50th marker, the little gold wedding rings strewn across the long tables, and the tiny portrait buttons we received as favors.
Judy remarked that she had ‘half a brain, and so does Chuck.’ I laughed, because Chuck told me that same thing a number of years ago. It’s their way of saying they complete each other. Because there were a lot of people and we all sat wherever there was an empty seat, they wound up at separate tables. It didn’t matter, because it’s clear they are now and always will be together.
