    It was a Saturday, the day after “Good Friday” and the day before “Easter Sunday.” Richard Nixon was the President; Edward Heath was the UK Prime Minister.

    Raymond Burr starred in A Man Whose Name Was John, which aired the next day. High Plains Drifter, Solyent Green and Scarecrow were all playing in the theaters.

    Topping the charts: “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree” by Tony Orlando & Dawn; “Sing” by The Carpenters; “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealers Wheel; “Reeling in the Years” by Steely Dan; “My Love” by Paul McCartney & Wings.

    And speaking of “my love,” on April 21, 1973, a very beautiful lady (inside and out) became my wife. And here are some pics, 'cuz it did happen...

    She is a woman of sound mind and generally speaking good judgement, that one lapse of judgement in time notwithstanding. And that has been my good fortune for 48 years.

    We just got back from a camping trip, BTW. That's how we celebrated. As I get pictures off my phone and onto my laptop's hard drive, I'll post them, either in this or another thread.

    We will continue to celebrate tonight as I take her out to the restaurant we dined in on our honeymoon 48 years ago.

    21 coming up for me, and we got married on New Year’s Eve 2000. Talk about making it hard to forget the day (and number of years married)!

    Kudos to you two, too. Getting married on "Remembrance Day." Smart move! :)

    BTW, my birthday is November 11th. When I was born, it was still called "Armistice Day" here, before being changed a year or so later to "Veteran's Day."

    Congrats to you both. Truly something to celebrate. No matter how good a match that still takes effort and patience for that kind of run. Power of example.

    Congrats to you, Larry! Her, I'm not so sure:rolleyes: 48 years is a wonderful achievement! My lovely wife and I are working on 43 ourselves, and your birthday was my parents' anniversary. Hope your camping trip was fun. We went to Triple Creek Music and RV Park in Woodville this past weekend. Did a lot of pickin' and a bit of grinnin'. Maybe we could meet up there another time. Let me know!

    CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH, Larry. Because it's always eluded me, I'm both envious and amazed when the "right" two people find each other. I won't complain though, because life in general has been VERY generous to me, and NOT being married (married 1970-1980) has given me some wonderful experiences and opportunities I couldn't have had with that albatross, uh, I mean, relationship, hanging around my neck. ;)
    My best to you and your wife, and hope you have MANY MORE years together.

    Another smart move on an anniversary date that's easy to remember. Good thinking, Higgy.

    I've known for some time that there are quite a few of us here that have been married for decades, so congrats all around to those who, as @Greggorios has said, have had the patience and put in the effort. There is love,to quote Noel Paul Stookey (sung at our wedding, BTW), but it also takes effort and patience.

    Although I would say my wife is the patient one. In fact, I've said for years: "The secret to our longevity is God's grace and Beth's patience!"
