Cairo, Illinois Reminds Me Of How Much I Love My Wife


One place I wanted to see for years was Cairo, Illinois. This is where the Ohio River flows into the Mississippi River.

Moving from Cincinnati to Houston in 1998, my wife and I found that Cairo was on the drive to Houston. We stood on an observation platform where the rivers meet. It was a good moment.

Now when I fly back to Cincinnati once or twice a year, the plane sometimes flies right over that point. Each time it does, I think about being there with my excellent wife.

The wife and I have also been to the point in Pittsburgh where the Ohio River begins. So Pittsburgh also makes me think of how much I love my wife. 

General Grant was camped out in Cairo for a time during the Civil War. General Grant reminds me how glad I am the North won the Civil War.
