SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON

It hardly seems possible but it's three years today since David and I became Civil Partners...


...but that passage of time is really nothing compared with the twenty years we've actually been together.

Anyway, this year's official anniversary finds us at a very stressful place in our lives with great uncertainty about where we are going to live and what the future will hold.

Fortunately, however, we still have each other...

Leaning
And I am very lucky that the leaning man above is also someone who can reliably be leant upon!

So, for us and for whatever may lie ahead, here's Bill Withers with that famous song of his...

I am so glad that you have each other to lean on, no matter what the future holds...

Here's to many, many more years together, and to a comfortable solution to the uncertainty that's currently facing you. Know that through it all, not only do you have each other (which is a tremendous blessing) but you're wrapped in the warm, caring thoughts of friends.

(P.S. All three of you, Buttons included, look fantastic in that formal pic above!)

Congratulations to both of you. Here's to many more years together!

Very many Happy & Healthy Returns, Brian & David!

Great choice of song, by the way.

Sheila said...

Congratulations Brian & David - have a good day of celebration.
(I'm sure you're both leaners and leanees!)

Have a great celebration, and fingers crossed that the whole housing situation sorts itself out soon.

Brian Sibley said...

Thanks, Guys. No celebration, Ian, unless another Monday night at The Magic Circle counts as such! :)

Congratulations!
Hope you'll get your troubles sorted out soon!

Seems like 2010 has been a year of uncertainty for most people I know, including myself.

Congratulations and best wishes for many more years together.

Hope you get the housing situation sorted out very soon.

May I be permitted to enter your Blog and thank everyone for their good wishes too?
Thank you.

Brian Sibley said...

Thank YOU, David, and may I join in your thanks?! :)

Yes, I've been to Italy before last year as part of a cruise holiday - and I think I still have a picture of me doing a typical pose of me pretending to lean on the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The pizzas are very nice...

Congratulations on reaching another milestone but beyond that, of realising the value of being together. There isn't any problem in life that can't be better dealt with by two. I hope you both have the happiness and the years together that you so much deserve.

Brian Sibley said...

Thanks, old friend! :)

Continued happiness to you both!
