Special Anniversery

Recommended Posts

My wife told me, many years ago, " I will never allow myself to think of being with someone else, like I am with you." That one statement helped keep me from doing something stupid.

We are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary today. Daughter called last evening and told us to be ready to go, somewhere, at 3 this afternoon, and they would be here to pick us up.

Don't know how this sweet lady put up with me for this long, because at times I didn't deserve it. However, I like it, I love it, and I want some more of it!

Edited to add advice to younger men; Treat her well because you are going to be old someday, then you will really NEED her to be nice to you.

The Bible tells man that happiness, in the home, is the man's responsibility. And yes guys, that means you need to take out the trash. Do your part.

All very true statements, I will add mine "I know who wears the pants in our family, sometimes I want to get into them."

Mine is at 30 years

Our daughter called and told us they were taking us out to dinner. Came and picked us up and we left and my son in law said he wanted to stop and get a car part. We pulled into a big building and SURPRISE, 70 of our friends were there to party us down. All 4 of our daughters, two from 10 hrs away, were there with their families and all of us were there except for one grandson who burned his foot badly and could not make the trip. Those traveling are here at our home tonight and we had a totally great day. I never had a clue. 

My girls really made the day special for us. I know it took a lot of work, money and time.  The day could not have been any better. So glad to have all our girls under our roof tonight.  I will get up early, in the morning, and make them a breakfast to die for. Country Ham, bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy, and eggs. Nothing is too good for our girls and their family. I have kissed our baby granddaughter many many times, and I miss her so. She lives in Charleston SC and we only get to see her(7 Y O)  and her brother (11 y  o) 3 or 4 times during the year. 

I showed Parker the Savage 308 I am going to give him. I also gave him a new Rem 1911R1 which I will take at the same time. He told his dad they were going to need to get a gun safe for their house. I know he will appreciate the guns, and I don't know any  old man that truly enjoys giving his guns to grandkids  that they know will cherish them as he has in his life time.

I am a blessed man for sure! 

Thanks for all the replies and well wishes.
