Happy Anniversary!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009


My mother didn't get married until she was 28. When my sister and I were younger, we couldn't believe that she was that old before she found someone. We used to laugh and laugh...

We stopped laughing when we turned 29.

I guess Mom is getting the last laugh now.

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

53 years and going strong!

  2. @Laoch of Chicago,
    Yep. It's pretty cool, thanks.

    @Matthew,
    Thanks so much. AND they got engaged after 3 weeks and married 3 months later. Who does that ever work for?

    @Carlos,
    I can't imagine 53 days with anyone. (deep sigh..)

  3. I don't think I have 53 years left to give to anyone if they wanted it!
    :-)

    Happy Anniversary to your mom and pops! Are they going to celebrate by watching that Brazilian TV? Together?

  4. Congratulations to them! It certainly takes a lot of tolerance to last that long with anyone.

  9. Aw. Something about hitting that 50-year-mark is so awesome. I always smile when I see the "lifers" walking together.
    I'll bet they don't snip at each other all the time, either...

  10. @f8hasit,
    I know. I'm not sure I could give someone 53 months.

    Thanks for the wishes. No, they're saving that for his birthdy in a few weeks!

    @Travel Girl,
    Thanks, yes tolerance would be the correct word!

    @Leah,
    Thanks, aren't they sweet?

    I love how you calculate your longevity. That's fantastic!

  11. @KC,
    Mom & Dad Stripper. Now why didn't I think of that??

    @Ron,
    Thanks for the well wishes!

    @Chris,
    I stopped laughing in 1995. The Indians lost to the Braves in the World Series, too. It was a tough year.

    @Kathryn,
    Au contraire. They yell all the time. Well, mostly it's my mother yelling and my father saying, Yes Dear.
