My older woman/younger man happy marriage of more than a quarter century to Ron VanWarmer, eighteen years my junior. (I can’t tell you how many ‘friends’ bet that we wouldn’t last six months. Ha!) Click here  for my collection of younger man jokes from those early years.)
  Raising a chimpanzee named Boris for 2 ½ years in a Manhattan apartment. (For the whole, true story, check out No, He’s Not a Monkey, He’s an Ape and He’s My Son . For Boris photos, life updates, chimp news and more go to That’s My Boris. ) Chester Zoo.
