Happy 40th to Us!

Having been laid off, we couldn’t do a lot, but we took a drive to the mountains; got harassed by a guy with a big dog who said we were on his side of the road; got sprinkled on as a frigid blast of air blew through; used chemical toilets at one of our favorite lakes that because of drought conditions is almost dried up (the lake, not the toilet); went to a local abbey and talked to the ducks and took pictures; and now it’s El Pollo Loco.

We know how to party!

40 years?  How did that happen.  Glad it did, but yikes, that means I’m older than the 35 in my head!

    Happy 40th! Congratulations! Glad you got to live it up in the mountains in spite of that rude fella on the wrong side of the road.

    I am so amazed at people who can stay together that long and it warms me to the core to think there are people who can find that kind of love. I suppose if I added up all 5 marriages it would be 1,10,4,4, and 16 and that would be 35 years of marriage all together. I wouldn’t recommend doing it that way. 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
