29 years today!!!
« on: August 31, 2009, 01:03:05 PM »
Anniversary time today.  We have made it to 29 years and happy.

We celebrated yesterday by going to Costco (Ha! Ha!) But hubby did buy me an unbelievable gift that all you beeks would appreciate.

A diamond bee pendant.  I will have to get a photo and post it.

Take care
Annette

That's funny. When I showed the women I work with the pendant, one women winked at me and said "Did you have to do anything special to get that"  :evil: I said yes, "I had to put up with him for all those years" :-D :-D :-D

My parents made it to 41 years.  My mother had MANY medical problems for most of their time together.  My father stayed with her and took care of her up to and including her final days.  In today's world it is hard to find people who stay together for long periods of time.  At the first sign of trouble, they skip out, file for divorce, and go their own ways.  It is so refreshing to see a couple in it for the long haul.

I feel the same way and feel so blessed we adapted to each other and can live in peace. Your father sounds like a very special person and you must have had a very nice upbringing with loving parents. It shows in the way you express yourself.

Congrats on the anniversary! Just think, next year makes 30! WooHoo!! My wife and I just had our 24th...I gave her a new set of tires for the truck :jail:
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

New truck?  Who wants a new truck.  Hold out for a good horse.  Requires no gas, and you can eat it if it breaks down.  The original dual purpose transportation.

Actually the tires were her idea. Seems that around here you're judged more by your truck than your house (even though in many cases they both have wheels.) ;)

I'll try to keep the new tires clean for a week or so (least I can do) so she can walk around feeling like a queen for a while.
