    A timely article, especially for my wife and I. We are celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary today. On Thanksgiving day, just a few days after our wedding in 1970, we were celebrating Thanksgiving with all my relatives in the Boston area. My cousin just happened to have a couple of Bruins tickets for the game that very day.

I’m sure I asked if she would mind if I went to the game, and being the wonderful person that she is, she hesitantly consented. I left my bride of only a few days with all her new relatives and attended the game with my cousin. 42 years later, she has finally forgiven me,……….. we kid about often.
    I haven’t been to a Bruins game since!
