Howdie y'all...
I spoke with my mom last night and as I lay in bed afterwards thinking, I decided that what more perfect a tribute to this day, than to share with y'all some pics from my parents' long life together. I hope y'all enjoy this...

The happy couple...


My lovely mom...


My dad in his Navy days...


Somewhere in Mejico, mid 80's...dad has always loved wearing those straw hats!


I took this around their 46th year of marriage...note the opened package of Graham Crackers in my mom's hand...always ready with a snack for the grandkids...


Dancing at their 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration...


At my nephew, Victor's, wedding a few years later...


During Naomi's high school graduation ceremonies, 2001...


At my niece, Lisa's, wedding almost 3 years ago...


Sept. 29th, 2006...Their 60th Wedding Anniversary dinner...


Just a few weeks ago, at my big sis' home with their great-grand-daughter Angelica (Lisa's daughter)...


In this day & age of high speed this and instant that, its nice to know that some things...the really good things I believe...take time but last.

Happy Valentine's Day y'all...much love always...

In these days where it seems marriages last no more than a couple years at most, it's refreshing to see that true love still exists.

That is beautiful to see the whole story! My parents have been married 62 years, and are still in love at age 93. But 3 of their four children have been through divorce ( for me, twice!). So the role model doesn't always work - maybe we thought it was too easy.

What a lovely couple, and how stunning your mother was when she was younger. Wonderful post, thank you.

I won't make a 60th wedding anniversary more than likely, but I do hope to make it to our 40th

Thank you...yes, she was a beautiful woman...well, I think she still is. She's older than he is by 3 months, they're both 81 this year.

Thanks everyone...I hope y'all have had a wonderful Valentine's Day with the ones you love.

Take care...

Actually, yes they were. Mom's got an attic full of stuff he brought back home with him. I remember when we were kids, we used to use the wool blankets that he brought back with him...I had no idea what a 'wool' blanket was (we'd never had any before), I just knew they were really warm and itchy! When I was in high school, and much, much thinner than I am now mind you, I wore his black bell-bottom Navy pants to school! They were wonderful...they had a flap up the front, not a zipper, but the whole front flapped shut, had little black 'anchor' buttons up either side...I loved those pants! But they too were wool and very, very hot!

My thanks again for all your comments y'all!
