40 Years Ago Today.....

    I was putting the finishing touches on my wedding plans for TOMORROW!

    We were married by a J.P. in a country home with a beatiful braided rug, rustic furniture and a big fireplace. We couldn't afford a honeymoon . But here it is, all these years later.....and my father had said it would never last. (REALLY--- he did!)

    Tomorrow, we are just planning on getting and early start, going down to the Southern tier (of NY state), checking out the fall foliage and whatever else appeals to us; stopping when we feel like it, and looking for a nice quiet restaurant that we have never been to before. For these two Senior Citizens, this IS about as "exciting" as we like it, haha! (We still cannot afford a honeymoon! ) We looked at what it costs for B&B's or lodges within the area and they were outrageous!! I think the plans for tomorrow will be just fine.

    Happy Ruby (40th) Wedding Anniversary! This is considered the second major anniversary, with the 25th being the first major one.

    But any anniversary is worthy of celebration.

    Happy 40th Annie! My wife and I enjoyed our 16th just last week. Went my kind of camping.... Hawaiian style... at the Grand Hyatt. : )

    How's Beliefnet and Topix been? Still staying active? I have not even looked at either sites for over a month now. Finally getting mucho work done.

    If your hubby and you can get airfare out here Annie, we have an extra room you can stay at for nothing. Maybe that can count as a sort of honeymoon...

    Happy Anniversary, Sunspot.

    If you're coming as far as Oneonta you're invited to stay here. I'm going to the garlic festival in Saugerties but I'll be back by 5:00 or 6:00.
