Thirty-One Years And Counting...



As of today, Tom and I have been married 31 years. Wow. I can remember our wedding more clearly than what I did last Friday. How can that be?

These later years sail past faster with each one so it behooves me to live them well.

Happy anniversary to the best guy on Planet Earth!


*************************************************************


As you may recall, the above photo is, of all things, our engagement photo. Tom proposed to me at my favorite place in Auburn, CA---the cemetery--right beside Rattlesnake Dick's tombstone. Loved that then, love it now and still love that photo after all these decades. (But then, any photo which does not show my face is a winner.)

Go here for a bit of history about Rattlesnake Dick and a closer view of his tombstone.

Hope your anniversary was special. It was our 22nd anniversary Wednesday. Getting married the day before Thanksgiving was not a particularly great idea however. Seems I spend the day cooking and cleaning, getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner. We had reservations for a special dinner, Wednesday evening, but were too tired to go!
