Kicker – Anniversary in quarantine

NICK EICHER, HOST: Bob and Nancy Shellard have been married 67 years. But on their anniversary this week, sadly, they couldn’t be together. 

Nancy’s in a nursing home, and, prudently, the policy right now is as it is pretty much everywhere, no visitors.

Bob told NBC News…

SHELLARD: It makes me feel bad because I want her down with me and I know she can’t be.

So Bob did the best he could. He stood outside the nursing home in view of his wife’s second story window. He brought balloons and a sign. 

It read, “I’ve loved you 67 years and still do. Happy Anniversary.”

Nancy responded by waving and blowing kisses.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
