So much to be thankful for!! Friends, including my wife who I walked with on this Rails to Trails trail near Millersburg, OH! Thanks for how God has led our 74 year old lives, including bring us together, in 1966. We are also blessed to have friends invite us to join them for lunch today!! Thanks, Jim and Jana!

September 18, 1966, the day I met this lovely young lady! That started our relationship, and we “never looked back!” We have been married 53 years, and are looking to many more great years together. Alice had seen me on a bus on September 17. She had observed that a young lady got on the bus, and she saw me give up my seat for her. She never thought more of it, until she met me the next day! National Wife Appreciation Day, also falls on September 18, this year! I appreciate all the miles my wife has traveled with me, supporting me in so many ways! This photo was taken on the East Coast of the U.S. From the hat, you can tell that we also climbed the trek up to Poon Hill in Nepal, which was a part of our 40th wedding anniversary!

We met at college

Courted for one-thousand days

Then wedded for life

Fresh Grapefruit

My wife enjoyed picking ripe grapefruit from a tree in my sister’s backyard, in California!

My Wife Finds a Friend

This week my taxi work took me to the East Coast of the USA. My wife was able to travel along this time!!!

I wasn’t sure which photo to post of my dear wife, who has a birthday today! So, for two months she is older than I am! Here she is doing what she does well! Spending time listening to people’s stories! This is my Aunt Mary Ann, who passed away two years ago! I am traveling for 20 days with five young Amish men, a trip to the West Coast of the USA. We have two weeks behind us, and one week ahead of us! Therefore, I will have to really celebrate Alice’s birthday when I return home!!

Before I see the bird!

My Fav T-Shirt, and Mug, Both Gifts From Friends

My wife and I go walking on a local trail. I see a bird, I try to photograph it, check it out with my binoculars, and before I know it she is far down the trail. After some 30 minutes I look into the distance, and I see her returning! She We are both in our “happy places!”

Bride and Groom

With me!

Bride with my wife (Groom’s Grandmother)

This couple is enjoying a morning walk at Twin Lakes in Florida. It is something to be grateful for, to still have a spouse that we continue to walk through life with, in our “Golden Years!” Golden, mostly because we have each other. My wife faithfully prepares food for my meals. She has also taken up doing the snow shoveling, and lawn mowing, because I am quite busy with my taxi work, and she enjoys the exercise! We have been blessed to have celebrated 55 Valentine’s Days, since we met in the fall of 1966, during our first year of University! Thank you, Sweetheart!

Old Friends

September 18! A memorable Day indeed. 55 years ago I met a lovely girl, who 1,000 days later became my wife!! We are old friends for sure!

We had a short and sweet birthday party, with just my wife and I attending! All my siblings attended via Zoom, thus they missed the cake and ice cream! Great to see her having fun and enjoying herself! I decide to pose with her, and she had to clown around! 🙂

She settled down when I grabbed the camera!
