New beginnings…supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Dick Van Dyke, 86, married his makeup artist, Arlene Silver, 40. I think it is the greatest age difference between husband and wife that I know.  It will be fun to watch these newlyweds.

A few years ago I would have been laughing at this match. However, life teaches us that our time on Earth is short and happiness fleeting. If I were alone at 86 and crazy about someone who loved me, who knows?  Sometimes our sunset years bring great light.

Your thoughts?
