63rd Wedding Anniversary!
My parents got married on December 15, 1943 so this is their 63rd. Truly amazing.
When my father found out he was being posted to England in two weeks, he phoned up my mom and said, "Let's get married next weekend!"
I guess many young couples were in that position then.....it was either now or perhaps never.
I think my mom was a gorgeous young girl and my dad quite a handsome man. They still make an eye-catching couple and look quite stunning when they get all dressed up in fancy clothes.
When they recently went on a cruise, the Captain greeted them at the door and told them they looked so elegant. They were invited to sit at his table the next night!
My mom and dad had three girls and they are very proud of each one of us. They have enjoyed watching five grandchildren grow up and come into their own. Mom is 85 and my dad is 87, and are lively, bright, intelligent people. Their health is still relatively good.
My dad will take mom to a wonderful dinner at the same high class restaurant they always have gone on this date. They will start with martinis and order rack of lamb. The conversation will be strong and the time together will be savoured.
I toast you, mom and dad on your 63rd! You have been truly blessed.
Mother of Invention, clinking my glass with yours!
