More Pictures of the Ages

I still have yet to master this blog machine. Apparently the pictures don't publish in the order you start with. And they will only take 4 or 5 per post I gather. A safe guard for the reader no doubt, so they don't die from boredom in front of the computer. So here are a couple more of the life and times of Tom & Patty. I would try to lable them but I am sure to lable them out of order. Read on for the actual anniversary post.

Forty Years in Living Color

I don't know why the pictures didn't download to my post but I am trying again. Don't worry, I didn't put forty full years in, not even close. Just a few down through the ages.

Just A Couple of Innocents who had no idea what life was!

Happy Anniversarys

Happy Anniversary first to Aaron and Gel. They were married on the 10th of December, two days before our 25th. It was some party that year. I wanted to throw another one but.....
Bob Seger might say "Forty years, where'd they go? Forty years, I don't know where they've gone!" We celebrated at DisneyLand, where we wanted to go on our honeymoon. lo those many years ago, but had no money. We actually borrowed $200. from Max and went to San Diego Zoo and Sea World, and stayed 3 nights in a motel. Wow, all for 200 dollars. Can you imagine?! We had a wonderful time at Disneyland and rode the roller coasters over and over. I told Tom riding them was pretty much like our life together. A lot of ups and downs, high peaks, and low valleys and every once in a while, we would be thrown for a couple of loops. Sometimes we would just hold on tight, breathe deep, and hope we stayed on the track. And then there were times in the last 40 years where we would be at the top of the highest pinnacle, where for a brief, shining moment we could see forever and what a view. I loved the old lady in the movie Parenthood who told her family about the roller coaster and the merry-go-round. I like the roller coaster better too!! Our life together has been an amazing ride! Someone once asked me if I was single again someday, would I remarry. I told him probably not and he asked why? And I still stand by the answer all these years later, that once you have had the best, it would all be down hill from there. I could go on and on about the last forty years but let it suffice to say, I have been loved and taught by the most unselfish person I have ever know, who protects and serves me daily. I would be lost without him. He is my anchor and my sail. I look forward to eternity with him by my side. Happy Anniversary Tom.
