Wistful Wednesday : 64 Years later

It was my parents wedding anniversary last week.  They were gone on vacation.

Here they were 64 years ago.

I talked them into a photo on Monday October 13, 2014.  It was also my Mothers 85th birthday.  Dad was 88 last week, October is their month.

Mom and Dad Monday Oct 13 2014

My sister was there with her slow camera…and she kept trying to capture a kiss…until both of them began to giggle too much……

Giggling Mom and dad Oct 13 2014

Dad was giggling so hard I am sure Mom was helping to hold him up!

Both are okay for the moment, Dad has ups and downs…he is a bladder cancer survivor starting his 28th year…and he has Celiac Disease (Gluten Intolerance)…both have some arthritis.   They are still active, Dad grows a garden and Mom has flower gardens.  They live in their own home in town.
