Tag Archive: Wedding Anniversary


My wife and I were walking at sunrise this morning, but it wasn’t raining! Will go out to eat this afternoon, and will likely order lobster, instead of biscuits and gravy! 🙂 Looking forward to another sweet year with my college sweetheart!!!

50th Anniversary Photoshoot!

Day 165

YESTERDAY WAS A FULL DAY as we celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary.  We walked for 45 minutes at 4:45 am.  At 6:45 I played 2 hours of tennis, followed by a nice breakfast.  Was back home in time to go to Coffee World to celebrate with Dustin and Alice.  We were celebrating our anniversary, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Alice’s birthday which is coming up in 4 days.  Home in time for a nap before supper.  Supper was left-overs!  Of course the left0vers were mashed potatoes and steak!  I must confess it is the best steak in Dhaka, since my wife knows how to cook up a terrific swiss steak.  I then went shopping for some things Alice wanted before our trip and also bought 20 red roses, which she really enjoyed.  Then after shopping I had a few minutes before we went to Jeremy’s for A & W root beer floats.  This is one of our favorite drinks!  It was very thoughtful of them to fix these for us.  Then it was home to bed.  Today was almost as fast and furious.  A friend who had borrowed my camera returned it at 8:20 pm, in plenty of time for our 5:30 am departure for the train station.  Almost a week in Syhlet, Bangladesh and then on into India, staying near Cherrapungee for several days.

HAPPY 42ND ANNIVERSARY TODAY FOR Alice, my wonderful wife and I.  She has been a faithful comrade throughout life.  Whether hiking in Nepal, Colorado, Arizona or Bali she has been a trooper navigating canyons, volcanoes, and mountains! Married life, in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Ontario, Ohio and Bangladesh! I thank God for giving me such a wonderful companion.  I met her on September 18, 1966 in beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and married her 1,000 days later!!
