Happy Anniversary Honey, I’m Going Hunting

Last weekend, my hunting widow joined me and the pup for a visit to the grouse woods.

Meredith Godfrey of Golden Valley, Minnesota became Meredith St.Pierre on October 8, 2005 and forever joined the ranks of hunting widows. 

Today, I depart for Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in pursuit of ruffed grouse and timberdoodle with buddies Anthony Hauck and Matt Kucharski.  In five years of marriage, I’ll miss my fifth consecutive anniversary tomorrow. 

In my defense, I explained the future problems of an October wedding to Meredith during our wedding date selection discussion. In all actuality, Meredith is about as low maintenance a gal as you’ll find when it comes to my hunting addictions.  In five years of missed anniversaries and autumn absences, I can count our conflicts over hunting adventures on one thumb. 

So, if you’ll indulge me for one blog, I’d like to wish my beautiful hunting widow a “Happy Anniversary” tomorrow so I don’t have to sleep on the couch with the dog when I get home. 

Love you Mere!

    You are a lucky guy for having such an understanding wife! I’m stuck missing two weekends of hunting this fall to attends weddings with my wife…
    Please tell Meredith hi for me, we went to school together at Gustavus.

    Happy Anniversary, Bob! As I recall, didn’t Meredith go fishing with you on your honeymoon? She’s a keeper!

    Bob, I have often ended up giving presentations around the country on my anniversary in February, and was usually able to bring in a good “Gary story” to make my points (related to the joys of hunting WITH my husband!). Have a great time, the grouse have been good this year.
