1966: The setting is in Harrisonburg, Va., situated in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Alice and I arrived at the same Professor’s home to get acquainted with other new college students the day before our Freshman classes began. After a nice afternoon, some games, and pizza, we ended up walking back to our respective dorms together. We decided to meet after the Sunday evening vespers and play ping ping. The Student Center wasn’t open yet, so we sat on the steps and chatted. That was the beginning, and the rest is history!

2018: Now after 49 plus years of marriage, the setting is Millersburg, Ohio.  We woke, checked our devices, had devotions, and at sunrise headed for the local trail for an hour walk, plus some other exercises. Returned home, changed clothes, and stopped for the Bargain Hunter paper, and on to the Post Office to send off our application for our Passport renewals.  Then we went to see my 95-yr-old Mother, and being hungry we headed for Nana’s Kitchen near Holmesville, and had a nice brunch. Then it was on to Buzzard’s Family Shoes in Loudonville for some insoles for my shoes.  Returning home it was nap time for me, followed by a fun time having Alice read me all the texts from Alice’s grade schoolmates, as they reminisced their early school days at Sparta School in Spartansburg, Pa.! I decided to fill the hummingbird feeder, and also the dining room window bird feeder. Soon it was supper time, followed by preparing this blog post.

This is a memorable day indeed

The setting for the photo was in the Valley of the Five Lakes, in Jasper National Park in Alberta!  July 2017
