49 years but who’s counting?


September 26, 1970

Oh, we haven’t changed a bit!  LOL!!!

My hair is brown.  Banjo Man’s hair is…there.  And I certainly can no longer fit in my size 5 wedding dress!  We turned into parents and then grandparents.  And had many, many adventures–good and not so good–together.  Always together.

But love endures, as they remind us on the Hallmark Channel.  We made it through 49 years and life is good!

So we are going down to the ocean tonight and will sit on the second floor deck at Champlin’s while eating seafood and watching the fishing boats.  Will has arrived and will be joining us in our celebration as he’s anxious to leave all that Texas BBQ behind for a few days and instead eat oysters and whatever fresh fish appeals to him.

It’s going to be nice evening, 75 degrees and blue skies over the water.  Happy Anniversary to us!

    And many, many more.

    Thought I had written you a note which you would receive before Glen returned but have found no evidence of having done so. To say, we had such a nice time together and missed you. Thanks for being willing to go it alone for a few days.

    Hello to Will.

    A great looking young couple who, like good wine, get better with age.
