We had our differences. For most couples they would have been irreconcilable, but we always muddled through.
It’s all about compromise. Sure, his job kept him busy, away from home a lot. Maybe that helped. We weren’t living under each other’s feet for forty years.

Well, he’s on the road again now, what remains of him. On his way to visit them again. Hope I got the address right.
