Last week my hubby and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. We went out to eat and had a nice quiet celebration. Just like our wedding, which was a small family wedding on my folks' patio.
Tied the knot in September 1976, the year of America's bicentennial.
Best man, Jim George, a Vietnam war hero.
Maid of honor, my sister, Pam, holding back sentimental tears.
And the two shall become one.
And, finally, six!

"Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts."
A lot has happened in 35 years.
Our family has grown.
Three have married.
And we have a granddaughter - Little Twinkle Eyes!
And three weeks ago, our grandson, Punkin, was born!
Here we are on our anniversary, a happy, old married couple.
How did we do it? It's been so long, I honestly can't remember!
But lots of clownin' helped, for sure.

One of the top songs in 1976
Where were you in 1976? If you weren't born yet, do you think you would have liked living back then?
