|Today we celebrate 49 years of marriage.|
Decided to stop down by the lake for a selfie.
Yes, it was a little windy and cold.
Over the years we have done many different things to celebrate this date. On our 1st Anniversary we went to dinner out at the Dell's Supper Club we had a table by the windows and could look out at the deer they had out there. Several couples we would go out to dinner with surprised us with a cake and gifts out at the Dells on our 25th Anniversary. Plus, for that Anniversary Tom planned a surprise trip to Las Vegas. We spent more than one Anniversary across the Bay in Sister Bay, WI at a Bed and Breakfast that had beautifully decorated Christmas Trees in all their rooms. The advantage of being married in the middle of December is that most places we would go to would be decorated for Christmas. Several years we spent our Anniversary at a Christmas Concert of some sort, grade school, band, or choral. More then once it was a Boy Scout event. For our 40th we were busy with last minute tasks for our Son and Daughter-in-laws wedding. This year we went to our Granddaughter's Christmas Program and waited to hear from the dealership about what is going on with our Jeep.

The Jeep got its new part in yesterday and still was not fixed. Finally after the mechanic here spent several hours yesterday and this morning on the phone with Chrysler it was decide the wire harness needed to be replaced. The new one will be here tomorrow morning. Our hope now is that is the fix and we will be on the road Saturday morning. It is what it is and the dealership here has been doing their best to get us on our way.
In the meantime, I am now sitting in an empty house looking at walls and windows and finding more and more to clean and fix. I think Tom will be extremely glad to be on our way. By the way that chair I am sitting on is the only one left in here because we were leaving it. Okay so there is one more chair, a metal folding one, and as I type this Tom is sitting on it enjoying a beer...lol
No pictures again. I still have not taken the time to figure out how to move them onto this computer.

One last moment to share, with everything going on, Tom came home with a red long stem rose in a vase this afternoon. In 49 years he has never missed an occasion.
"Chains do not hold a marriage together.
It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads,
which sew people together through the years."
Today was a special day in our lives and because of that it was a good day. We hope your day was special, also. If you have the time to leave a comment we would love to hear from you. If you do not we are still glad you took the time to read our blog.
Happy Anniversary to the both of you.ReplyDelete
It's nice when the Romance still burns brightly.

Happy Anniversary, hopefully you will be on the road Saturday morning and get out of the UP.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the Anniversary wishes. We love the UP but we are ready to be gone for the winter.Delete
Happy Anniversary you two! Tom is a sweetie! We can see the love when you two are together! Hopefully the Jeep is done and you can head out Saturday. I believe things happen for a reason, so there is a reason you weren't meant to leave when planned. Safe travels..ReplyDelete
Thank you for the Anniversary wishes. Tom is a sweetie but do not tell him I said so...lolDelete
I believe things happen for a reason, also, but we are ready for the reason to be behind us...soon.
49 years!!! Neither of you look old enough to be married that long. Congratulations and keep up the good work!!!!! Hope the Jeep is repaired soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the good wishes...and the compliment. It is hard to believe it has been that long.Delete
Happy Anniversary to both of you. That is quite a milestone.ReplyDelete
Hopefully the Jeep will be ready soon and you can head for warmer climes. I recall you said the next weather window was Saturday anyway. Cleaner is better. Hahaha. Keeps you busy and fixing keeps Tom busy. The time will pass quickly. Safe travels!!
Thank you for the Anniversary wishes.Delete
Tom repaired a light switch today tomorrow we are going to do windows. It does make the time go by a little faster.
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary, hope the wire harness is the fix and you are "On Your Way" on Saturday.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the Anniversary wishes. If only the wire harness would have been the fix we could have been "On Our Way".Delete
Happy Anniversary you two! Must have been married in your early teens!ReplyDelete
Hope the Jeep fix will get you on the road soon. Travel safe!
Thanks for the Anniversary wishes. We are hoping to be on the road soon.Delete
This is a very useful post, thank you! I agree that innovations are the most important thing for most businesses because with today’s fast-changing world we need to stay on top of the changes if we want to survive.ReplyDelete
