Just A Couple of April Fools For Thirty (30) Years!

We can hardly believe ourselves that it was thirty years ago when we eloped, as stated in the announcement above, that we sent out to friends and family who received it on April Fools Day in 1985. When we got home the phone was ringing off the hook (phones were on hooks then, not flat things that fit in pockets) because they weren't sure if we were serious or not.

This is what we looked like then ...

Over the years we raised two kids, and traveled the highways and byways together up hills and into valleys and around the bends of life ...

This behavior continues till today, as just last week my "intrepid driver" took us to visit one of the kids and grandkids in Portland, Oregon. We are good traveling companions!

Sometimes we just enjoy hanging out at home in our recliners, reading, and drawing, or watching TV. My guy also sings and plays guitar, from our first date till now, something I enjoy
and never tire of (much).

We've gotten a little older, well, okay, a lot older ...

We've stuck it out through thick ...

... and thin (ner) ...
This is us today! Or just last week!

And I hope we get to keep holding hands for many years to come!
Happy Anniversary to us!
