Fifty first Wedding Anniversary


Dont we look pleased with ourselves, so young, 19 and 21, but so we should be pleased with ourselves, we have had our ups and downs but it has been a wonderful time with a terrific person who doesnt always give me what I want but tries hard and is fun to be with and most importantly is a friend as well as lover.
We have lived through droughts and good years with money and without, have raised 4 wonderful children and have 11 grand children and 1 great grand child.
Are we ready for retirement, I dont think so.
We live in a lovely valley in a glorious part of the world.
We have been lucky to see many parts of that world, perhaps not as many as I would like but more than some others.
We have lived a fortunate life.
