Anniversary

We have just returned from a lovely dinner out to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.

We have had 38 happy years together, and four wonderful children. We've lived in two States, in the country, in tiny towns and now in Australia's capital city; worked at 2-teacher to 35-teacher schools; been associated with cricket, netball, hockey, gymnastics, basketball, tennis, athletics and softball, either as participants or mostly through our children; lived overseas for a year and travelled to several different countries; lived in six different houses although this is the only one we owned; met many wonderful people and made good friends through those years. Now we are both retired and able to share many interests, including time with our grandchildren.

We are so thankful, and blessed. What more could we ask?

Congratulations to you both! That's a pretty good innings. We just chalked up 30 years and figure we'll probably see the distance together now. There are many advantages to having a best mate around for whenever you might need them.

Congratulations on 38 years together! Am just sitting here thinking what life was like in 1967 when this photo was taken - a somewhat different world -- no Internet, a war in Vietnam, etc. But the look of young love remains the same!

THANK YOU ALL so very much for your lovely comments and congratulations on our Wedding Anniversary. It hasn't all been plain sailing but it's been well worth the perserverance.
