Mr. and Mrs. G have been married 63 years and have had 126 wedding anniversaries.
"Why? " I asked.
"We got married while I was stationed in Japan on December 28th at the American consulate but it wasn't recorded by the Bureau of statistics until January 5th because the offices were closed for the holidays."
"It's been pretty nice. We've celebrated twice each year with a cake and a gift to mark the anniversary of both dates."
I noticed that Mrs. G. wore a lot of jewelry when I arrived.
Now I know why.
She owns a lot of jewelry.
