For Mom and Dad

I ask you to join me in congratulating my parents on their 50th Wedding anniversary. They were married on July 14, 1956. They have 4 sons and, by birth or adoption, 9 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter.

What a great picture, too.
I hope I'm married that long, and longer.

Happy Anniversary to them! That's a lot of years, and I'm sure they could teach all us newlyweds (with only 22 years) a thing or two.

I truly want to wish them a wonderful 50th anniversary. That sort of dedication is rare these days and is to be congratulated with heartfelt praise.

My husband and I are nearly there; it will be 50 years in, er... (I'm not very good at math, CP, give me a minute. Hard day and all.) Oh yeah, our 46th anniversary is this year in December, so it will be four years. Whew! That wasn't hard after all.

Frivolity aside, I clicked on the picture to make it larger. They are a very good-looking couple, and even though it's an old picture, I'll bet they still are. So who do you take after, Mom or Dad?

May they have many more wonderful years together.

Er, excuse me Shoprat! I told you it was a long day, and it really was. I saw CP's comment and got confused. My apologies.

Wish them the best from all of us. That is an accomplishment. I've just got 32 more to go...
