I teasingly call her SWMBO, which stands for "She Who Must Be Obeyed."  That term comes from an English television show of some years back "Rumpole of the Bailey".  It was how the rumpled British barrister, Horace Rumpole, referred to his own dear wife.

She is difficult to photograph, mainly because she hates photos of herself.  But I got lucky the other day, in part because the new digital cameras allow one to take shot after shot after shot until you get one right.  She has a flicker of a smile . . possibly anticipating that much-ballyhooed tiramisu.

I think she's beautiful and she is the love of my life.


  1. She is beautiful! You are a lucky man ;)

  2. A lucky pirate knows what real treasure is. You're one lucky pirate.

  3. A beautiful lady! Take good care of her...

  4. Bruce, you are a lucky man. I'm sure you and SWMBO know that.

  5. Too bad you can't take more photos of her. She is a beauty. I hope you tell her so...often.

  6. She is beautiful! It's nice to have someone who loves you enough to catch a flattering photo. You are both fortunate.
