Wistful Wednesday: 63 years ago

It is my parents 63rd wedding anniversary this week.

I made them a card from this old photo.  My Mom’s hair was all up in pin curls and tied with a headscarf.

At woodcarving on Monday Cousin Chuckie said he remembered that evening, after the ceremony he got to honk the horn all the way to our Grandparents farm for the dinner that was served for all the guests.

It is a week of celebrating at my parents house, Dad’s birthday(87) is today and Mom’s birthday (84) is in a few days:)

  1. My mother wore here hair the same way - Pin curls with a scarf around it. My parents would have both been 93 this year.

  4. Happy birthday and anniversary to them both. My parents had both birthdays and their wedding anniversary all within eight days, August 31-September 7, but they weren't big on celebration. Live it up, I say.

  6. An escort of honking vehicles used to follow newlyweds up and down Main Street here, too. That doesn't happen anymore.

    Congratulations, Far Side Parents! May your day be filled with wonderful memories, new and old.
