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

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!

Christmas Decor

These folks seem to have a thing for the Nutcracker! Is Santa having trouble getting up, or down?

Taking a closer look, he seems to be ignoring the stepladder set out for his use!

Jumping Jack

I was inspired by this toy a friend brought to carving club. I think I will try to carve one similar to it! Happy Day before U.S. Thanksgiving. I loved it when in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving in October, and then also celebrated Thanksgiving in November!!! It even made me feel special when the other day, someone posted a blog regarding Father’s Day in Sweden. I love special days, and love being a father!

Notice in the background the Holmes County Courthouse in Millersburg, Ohio shining in the morning sun. The Courthouse Clock Tower etc, has been in the renovation process for awhile.

Happy Easter

Hope you are all feeling loved today! May those who have lost a companion, have close friends to comfort them during this holiday. This is the 55th Valentine’s Day that my wife and I have celebrated, the first three times were while we were courting!!
