Once upon a time, in a fairy tale land, him and her went for a ride … on an elephant.

The elephant’s name was “Killer.” We were the King & Queen of King Richard’s Faire.

While on the ride, he had a proposal that she reacted to positively. 37 years ago today (April 7, 1984) we made it official and became HimNHer. At that time, we were both at WIND radio, in Chicago. The station had a Sunday night religious block of programing hosted by a priest, minister and rabbi. Since we were friends with all of them, they all officiated at our wedding.

We were married by a priest, a minister and a rabbi. Really!

It’s been a wonderful ride for the 37 years or 1,930 weeks that we’ve been side by side. … and not just the elephant part!

This collage includes our first date (upper left), first anniversary (upper right), one of over 6,000 shows at WGN radio and enjoying our roles as “Grand Dude” and “Gigi” to Joseph Crispen.

Pandemics, parties or whatever, we’re in it for the long haul. Now, we’ve got our sights set on, at least, 37 more … and then some.

Thanks for hopping on this part of the ride with us!

Stay safe,

Steve & Johnnie
