40 years

40 years starting September 6, 1969 equals 2,087 weeks or 14,610 days.

This is the period of time my wife and I have been happily married. We felt a celebration was in order so we organized a week-long party at Lake Norman. This lake is near Charlotte, North Carolina, has 520 miles of shore line, was completed in 1964 for generation of power by Duke Power Company, and was named after the company's CEO in the 1950's, Norman Atwater Cocke.

We rented a lake-front house, hired a rental company to provide a tent, tables, chairs, and more, bartered with a friend for a 24-foot pontoon boat, and arranged with Harris Teeter to prepare food each day for family, friends, and neighbors who visited throughout the week.
