S: Chris and Robin's 25th Anniversary 2011

BC: I'll still need you. I'll still feed you. | Yours for evermore

FC: Who Could Ask For More? | Chris & Robin 1986-2011

1: When I get older, losing my hair, Many years from now, Will you still be sending me a valentine, Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?

2: As we've come to realize, the key to a rich life is not reaching a destination. Rather, in the immortal words of Miley Cyrus, “It's the climb.” We've climbed more than a few mountains together, taking on the joys and challenges of old houses, algae infested pools, pets, kids, multiple career adjustments, and our small portion of headaches, heartaches and backaches. I feel blessed to have taken that long and winding road with you. And I know this much is true (Yes, I managed to work in “our song!”): it could only have been possible with the smartest, sexiest, kindest, most honest and thoughtful geek ever to emerge from the depths of the EQuad. (Those adorable dimples didn't hurt either.) I am grateful every day that you chose me to share your life. And while that life has included some adventures, I think what has “made it work” is that we are still best friends who love spending time together – even doing mundane things like dropping off the dry cleaning, or having lunch at Big Fish, or watching Star Trek together (or STNG, or DS9, or Voyager, or Enterprise, or any of the three Stargates, or Battlestar Galactica). Who could ask for more? So in this musically inspired album (Remember when we actually used to buy music in albums?) I’ve included the milestones, but focused on “the little things.” Because, as Stephen Sondheim noted so eloquently, those are what make “perfect relationships.” Thanks for being my perfect match for the last quarter of a century. I can't think of any better fate than “growing old and gray" (and bald) with you; and I can't wait to see what the next 25 years will bring. I'd like to think we've only just begun. | Where do I begin? Well, as the picture below shows, right from the start of our love story, we were an exciting couple – bursting with energy and eager for adventure! We began our journey in the dorm formerly known as P.I.C., and now we find ourselves, nearly 28 years later, a few miles away. At this rate, by our 50th anniversary, we may make it to Lawrenceville. Of course, there have been a few detours along the road – to the other side of the county line in Plainsboro, to the other side of the tracks in West Windsor (actually, it was the same side of the tracks, but it was the other side of Route One), and even to the other side of the pond. But somehow Old Nassau kept calling, and we kept “goin’ back" to where we once belonged. I suppose we always will. | “Doing the garden, digging the weeds -- Who could ask for more?" | All my love always, Robin June 21, 2011

3: The Little Things You Do Together Stephen Sondheim It's the little things you do together, Do together, Do together, That make perfect relationships. The hobbies you pursue together, Savings you accrue together, Looks you misconstrue together, That make marriage a joy. It's the little things you share together, Swear together, Wear together, That make perfect relationships. The concerts you enjoy together, Neighbors you annoy together, Children you destroy together, That keep marriage intact. . | It's not talk of God and the decade ahead that Allows you to get through the worst. It's "I do" and "you don't" and "nobody said that" And "who brought the subject up first?" It's the little things, The little things, the little things, the little things. The little ways you try together, Cry together, Lie together, That make perfect relationships. Becoming a cliche together, Growing old and gray together, Withering away together, That make marriage a joy. | It's not so hard to be married When two maneuver as one. It's not so hard to be married, And, Jesus Christ, is it fun!
