43 years ago

June 14, 1969
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Shanks

On this date 43 years ago
my husband and I were cutting a wedding cake!  
Tonight we went to Baldwin Station and had dinner out
to celebrate
 - a treat for us, since we seldom eat out now-a-days.

It was a double treat
because the wedding memories of our son and daughter-in-law
were very fresh in our minds.
They were married at this same restaurant just last month.

The weather tonight was perfect,
the food was excellent,
and the company of the man I have loved all these years
 is still welcome in my life.


  1. Lovely....happy anniversary.

  2. Congratulations to you both, may you have many more together

  3. Happy Anniversary . . . Best of the best to you!
