Tomorrow's the BIG day!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

53 years and counting, how much longer is she going to put up with this ole farmer, many more I hope. Some things you think are just too good to last, I sure hope this is not one of them. Like I told her 30 years ago, I think you can list me as the benefactor on your life insurance policy now I think it's going to work. Still live in the same house we moved into when we got home from our honeymoon to Texas, have not made too many changes, she's been a cheap keeper, maybe that's why it's lasted. Raised 4 boys, they've made us proud, given us 10 healthy grandkids and as of Feb. 3 our first great grand child. Both in good health except for a few little aches and pains that one could expect at this age. What are we doing special for our BIG day? Taking her out to breakfast after both of us going to the Chirpractor, then more shopping for her a dress for our GD's wedding in June, I think that will take the rest of the day. Just took her to her favorite deli yesterday for Valentines Day topped off with a Culvers chocolate cone. Now that's livin! It's sure been handy all these years having both days so close, tried to get her to slid her birthday up 3 months too so as to better remember with absolutely no luck. She's a real keeper but something she just won't compromise on.
Love you my Sweet G ood L ookin B etter H alf! GLBH. Thanks for sharing my life!

    February is my Mom's birthday and my dad would never dream of combining the two. He wants her to feel special both days! They will be celebrating 60 years in December.

    My dear baby BROTHER, Sorry I am a day late in writing this! We wish you many more years together! I feel you wife is very lucky to have YOU! I am very partial I am sure! Feb. is always a whirl wind month! This one has been NO DIFFERENT!
Older brother & dear wife & us went to the Fl State Fair! We left at 9:30 AM & we walked our LEGS OFF! We had a good time but for us I hope that will be our last time going to that fair! I know J & J were disappointed in the horse things! Last year was our 1st time at the fair & Melvin took us so we were NO HELP to J&J of where to park the car. We parked at gate 4 & should have parked at gate 1! The food was a horrible high price! We had a beautiful weather day! Went to a 4 PM musical show for 2 hours & that is another thing I hope not to repeat! Our buts got sore seating the 2 hours on the steel seats! Oh dear I must quit complaining! Jan called about noon time today & she said they were wore out (which I told her we were also) & was going to rest today! We will go out for fish Friday night together. Then will come to our place to play cards! Hope your card came on time! Love you both & sounds like you had a great anniversary! 53 years is a long time! Love your Sis emoticon emoticon
