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

My wife and I enjoyed traveling to California, and spending a week with my sister and her family! So much fun, going to the mountains, my birthday celebration, jig-saw puzzles. We also visited Joshua Tree National Park, where this photo was taken of my sister and me!

We enjoyed along the California Coast along the Big Sur

Big Sur Inn and Restaurant has this Ice Cream Bus right by the gas station!

Summit County, Nevada has this nice rest area in Echo Canyon! We enjoyed stopping whenever we felt like to take a break. The beautiful scenery was a bonus.

City Lights

Early morning Nashville cityscape!

Truck Engines and Drivers resting at the Echo Canyon Welcome Center in Utah! We also enjoyed a short hike up the hill behind the Welcome Center.

Planning a trip is always an exciting time!

One of the many scenes I had on a 20 day taxi road trip with 5 young Amish men (Aged 22-39). Now home, before a 7 day road trip to Northeastern USA. It feels like a 40 hour layover! Maybe after that I will be more consistent with posts!

Campsite!

This campsite on the East side of the Grand Teton National Park was one of 8 sites we enjoyed on the 20 day Western USA trip we just took. By the time this is posted I will be on a 7 day trip to the NE of the USA. On this trip it is a pleasure to have my wife with me!

No Parking

Of course, I had to park for a minute to get the picture! We were disappointed that we couldn’t drive the complete “Going to Sun” road in Glacier National Park because it was still impassable at Logan Pass because of the winter snow! We did enjoy the section that was still open. We did not check out the section on the West side that was open, though we took the road at the East Entrance that was open for 14 miles!

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!!
