Happy 42nd anniversary to my Papa and Mama!  They got hitched way back in 1972, when the world was young and free (and a little blurry, golden and grainy).

It all started with just the two of you.  Somewhere along the way eleven kids came along, learned to walk and talk and feed themselves and tie their shoes, then went their own ways.  And suddenly, like a warp in time, it’s just the two of you again, all by yourselves.  This time in a crystal-clear, full color world full of cell phones, laptops, seat belts, GMOs, and Google Images.

With all our advanced technology, sometimes I still wish we lived back in that simple, golden world you came from.  (And if wishes were horses, Papa would have a full time job at my house in Colorado shoeing them.)

So anyway, happy anniversary!  I hope you two hippies have an awesome, happy day today.  And thank you, so very much, for having kids.  😉

    It really does seem like a lifetime ago…..and you took the words right out of our mouths: just the two of us again, all by ourselves. Noticed we got several calls today(we were out all day doing errands, having lunch and on a walking trail; me walking and Papa running forward and backward and running circles around me so we could say it was something we did together). Papa,gazing at the pic of us said,”I wonder if I still might have that same shirt.” Lol…I think maybe bc he never changed his style. Thanks, Angel !

    Yup, it did look yummy…I’d like to have seen it finished. Papa made a turkey on the woodstove once…it was burned on the outside and raw inside, hehe. But it was a fun experience for all of us. 🙂
