50 BIG ONES!!


50 YEARS ago today, DH and I eloped at Old St. Mary's Church in Chicago.  Since then the church has been razed, but we still are going strong and are still standing!  It's been a wild and interesting ride in many respects, but our marriage has mellowed and become sweet and serene.

  9. That is so wonderful! A very happy anniversary to you and may you have many more years together. Lois and I celebrated our 50th in Paris in 2007! I had lived in Chicago just prior to the year you were married...but I don't remember the church.

  10. And how fast the years fly by! Congratulations and best wishes for many more happy years together.

    The hearts look like they may have been done by the Valentine's Day artist, perhaps? Nice. I love anything with hearts.

  19. I was stunned at this! You two certainly don't look like the people in 50th wedding anniversary photos I used to see in the newspapers of my youth! You are amazing.

    Are you still in SF? The weather is so luxurious here in Las Cruces right now. Pansies in the planters, hollyhock plants and seedlings springing up everywhere in my yard, and roses growing like mad. Around town, I've seen fruit trees in bloom, and whole beds of daffodils. We so appreciate every single day here.
