51 years and counting

 Well we made it 51 years!  I chalk that up to marrying your best friend, one with whom you trust your inner most thoughts and always has your back.  Someone you can laugh with and cry with. 


This is the photo that hangs on the living room wall... it has a keepsake from our 50th Anniversary a year ago.


A card from a special neighbor showed up in the mail.  "Time has a way of making love more beautiful"

We will have a quiet day at home...we will cook something special for supper....and thank God that we are still together, have a cozy warm home, enough food to eat and even in the Isolation of 2020 we still love each other! 

More photos of that day 51 years ago can be found here.

  1. We have been married so long Connie can finish most of my sentences. She can also start some of them.

  13. Happy, happy anniversary to two best friends. I feel the same about my Dennis. He is literally my soul mate and I think you two are the same.

    Blessings,

  28. It's nice that 51 can just be a simple day to appreciate each other. Our 51 was this summer and I felt content in it's simplicity.

  29. Congratz! I tell Cheryl she is the best decision I have ever made. Also... The luckiest thing that ever happened to me... as the decision to get married was partly her saying "ok". 24.5 years later and we are still here. ( Take that Mother -in-law!) Great pics! Far Guy had hair! I remember when I had hair... just 10 years ago... It goes by so fast.

  30. Congratulations on 51 Happy Years! I loved going and looking at all your pictures. I hope in that last one, you two weren't standing outside in below zero weather. I had a long veil like that too! Hope you made something scrumptious for dinner tonight. All the best to you two!
