Happy Anniversary to Us!!

Today, my buddy and I are celebrating our 49th anniversary....only one to go until the big 50!!!  We are planning to go out to dinner and take in a movie.  That is a big treat for us because we really don't go out very often....a choice we both make...we like to stay home!!  So going out on our anniversary makes it a more special event...and is somewhat traditional!

December 29, 1963
We were married in Illinois at my little Catholic Church.  We had selected this date so my buddy could be home for Christmas as he was in the Air Force...that way his leave was two-fold.  For our honeymoon, we went to St. Louis, Missouri for a couple of nights.  And the hilight of entertainment was a nice dinner and a movie...we saw "The Cardinal"...a big production back then!


  1. Add my best wishes to your anniversary celebration. It's wonderful to find a good friend as well as a good husband all rolled up into one.

  2. Happy, Wonderful Anniversary!!! How awesome for both of you. That's quite an accomplishment.

    PS - love the new look of your blog!
