I have had good days, and I have had bad days. Although I certainly made mistakes in my life, there are more than enough right things I’ve done to make up for them. The smartest thing I have ever done happened 11 years ago tonight.

On April 8, 1995, I somehow got Sym Andrea Cusimano, the most amazing woman I’ve ever met, to marry me.

Not too shabby, Rankin, not too shabby.

Thanks for the good wishes. It was kind of a strange anniversery with Sym up in D.C. and me at home with the kids. Speaking of D.C., thanks to Mary and Julia for the phone calls in which you bestowed sincere, and mostly on-key, greetings. ;-)

Thanks, Dave. I have always been grateful that our differences of opinion do not stop the flow of good wishes in both directions.

Thank you Kristin and Linda. It is fun to look back on such a happy event. Our wedding was a true celebration of love and joy, and despite the inevitable speed bumps along the way, we try to make our marriage a continuation of that celebration.
