1964 ------ 2014

Fifty years ago today, we got married. No one thought it would last; least of all us. But we're still tolerating each other - LOL

Three wonderful children and six grandchildren  (plus two great step-kids) make it all worthwhile. It hasn't been a bed of roses; we've had our ups and downs, but I'd do it all over again, and I think he would too. 

We're going to celebrate at the end of the month, at the beach.

The publish date says 7-1-14, but our anniversary is 7-2. Not sure why that happened.

Congratulations, Judy. I am in awe of everyone who has remained married for so long. Sure, all long-term marriages have their peaks and valleys but it's the commitment to that vow of until death us part that brings tears to my eyes.

Many congratulations, Judy! And have a great celebration! Fifty years is a long, long time (we've made it 53!) and ups and downs can be quite steep! But congratulations all round and I hope your family emulate you in years to come!

And you made a handsome couple - I think you could still get into that lovely dress!
