I started practicing law with my father in 1970 and Martha started medical school. She is now retired from a general surgical practice and I achieved senior counsel status in 2016. We celebrated our fiftieth wedding anniversary on August 26,2017. For the last twenty-three years Martha and I have had an ownership interest in a farm in the Dordogne region of France. As a result of this I have had a chance to get a glimpse of law based on the Napoleonic Code. As a result of these experiences, I have learned that the " law" means various things in different parts of the world.
