In 1969 I was at art college, where I met a young woman. She was wearing a mini-ish skirt and leather sandals with criss-cross thongs that went up to just below her knees. I was so impressed with these sandals, that I decided at once to make an honest woman of her; amazingly she accepted. We signed papers in Gibraltar, and decided that we should make our home in Southern France.
As women do, she presented me with a few children along the way. Firstly a son, who now has two sons of his own. Then a daughter, who also has two sons. Then another son, who's still thinking about things.
We ambled along, did lots of silly things, and are still doing lots of silly things today.
So this is a little 'Thank You'. It's been a lot of fun, and if I know Lady Magnon, the fun will continue.
Yes, but it doesn't sound as good. It also reminds me that I forgot a big number last year!ReplyDelete
Of course, we both got married the same year!!ReplyDelete
Bless. The last time I saw her, she looked just like the photo.ReplyDelete
Congrats ... and many many more years together. We got hitched in '69, too. 'Twas a very good year.ReplyDelete

Lady Cro is beautiful and that's a lovely tribute as others have said. Congratulations to both of you. Though Mr EM and I don't go in for "calendar" celebrations as we prefer secret anniversaries.( But 1969-2011 is surely 42 years? Though as we've lost count because of not bothering much, who knows...)ReplyDelete
