    I couldn't say. I'll have to see if my folks know. There'll be another get-together in a month to celebrate my dad's 87th birthday :cool:
    I'll try to remember to ask then.

    Count your blessings, BT. My dad would have been 90 a few weeks ago, but he’s been gone since 1983.

    Be glad you’ve had him around all these years:)

    Congrats to them. Nice to see couples that dodged the divorce trend that was promoted in later years.

    My folks' folks' never divorced. I'm guessing it goes back further than that...

    My ex's folk's divorced. And my ex was quick to file.
    There's a pattern to be discerned, there.

    And it doesn't bode well for my sons. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about that.

    Fortunately, they are well aware of how society is just wrong about so many things, including the still-prevelant trend of disregarding the biggest promise one makes, and throwing in the towel on a marriage

    Wow! That’s awesome. My parents got separated after 53 years. True story. I guess that means I came from a broken home. Truth be told it was many years too late.

    Congratulations.

    I have to admit, I'm a little scared of your dad...:)

    Hang in there. I was there too. Love the kids and always be there for them. And try your best to bite your tongue. My sons thanked me many years later for never talking about their mother even though she shredded me. Good luck my friend.

    Just yesterday shortly after this get-together, my oldest son posted a meme on FB about never respecting "anyone who couldn't kill you unarmed" and I replied to that "except your grandmama:) "

    ...to which he replied "I am utterly convinced that grandmama could take me, no problem. she just chooses to be nice"

    :D
