Our 48th Wedding anniversary

The painted sketch is what I saw at lunch today, out for our wedding anniversary celebration, too much to drink and a reasonable lunch at our once favorite coffee stop which has had some renovations done, which may or may not be for the better. Any way the huge aloes were flowering and there was a glimpse of sea and islands.
Thought you might like to see what we looked like then, he was 21 and I was 19, much skinnier, no beard or grey hairs on him or me! If you want a bit more go to my backvalley seasons blogspot.
Amazing that after all that time he is still my best friend and we can still enjoy each other.

I sent my congratulations on your other blog. Great to see a pic that was taken so long ago! 48 - whoa - that is a long time and you are still talking - and the silences are comfortable too I am sure.

What a handsome/beautiful couple (even with the sticky out ears). You were so young! Congratulations.

48 years of marriage is a wonderful achievement... I've only got another 28 to go to catch up! Congratulations Penny (and John). Love the aloes - a most confident abstraction.
