Today anniversary #50
Fri Apr 05, 2013 5:27 am
  • Was hesitant to mention this cause so many will want to make smartass remarks about what has been a long tough path sometimes while a genuine pleasure mostly.

    But the fact of the matter is the wife and I have been married 50 years today.

    I can remember thinking in my younger years that I was going to be married 50 years and be 70 years old all in one short span and couldn't imagine living that long. Well half if it happened today. It will take to June to see if the other half makes it.

    :les:

    Here's a picture of the mrs. who obviously was remembering the song,

    Put on you new Easter Bonnet with the blue ribbon on it
    While I hitch old Dobbin to the sleigh

    And through the fields of clover we'll ride up to Dover
    On our Golden Wedding Day.

    She couldn't find her hat with the blue ribbon tho.

  • Congrats Les!

    This is an awesome accomplishment.

    I'll even forgo my usual schtick and leave it at that.

    I reserve the right to take subtle jabs about it later though. :)

  • No joking around on this one Les. It's always great to see people find true love and stay together for 50 years--so rare.

    Congrats!

  • My grandparents have been married a little longer than that. I can't fathom it as a young pup, relatively speaking, at 3.5 years married. Congrats Les.

  • Congrats, les! I've actually always admired those who can make a marriage work for that long. I certainly haven't been able to.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.

  • Thank you all very much. Had a quiet day, breakfast at the rebuilt Ferguson's in the Garland District.

    Talked about dinner out but have a house full of junk food right now. lol

    Most exciting part of the day? Got the new gazebo cover for our patio today and moved everything around to get ready to put it on. Not able to do much more at one time on my feet right now.

    Again thank you for the comments, we appreciate it.

  • Congrats to you and Darlene Les! Sadly most don't share your two idea of commitment. My parents have been married for 45 years, got married young so they are still relatively young still, though we had a scare when my dad had a stroke in late
    December, but is about 90% recovered and most people didn't know he had one until we tell them.

    May the spirit of our friend The Radish live on forever!

    Well it seems to me you're the one that's changed door locations. (sorry for a really bad joke)

    But ours is where its always been and you'd be welcome.
