Phil and Linda are featured in this 50plus Senior News cover story. “Philip and Lindy Malin have done exactly that. “When they were married 33 years ago, the Malins knew they were exact opposites and had nothing in common. “At that time, Philip was a proofreader for scientific publications and Lindy was director of therapies in a nursing home. If they asked each other how their day was, they knew neither would understand what the other was saying. “So they decided to find something they could do together each year of their marriage.
