 Well, looky here.  Somehow fifty years have passed.  They say the days are long but the years are short and they aren't kidding.

 Our daughter arranged for the marquee in town to announce to one and all we've had a milestone anniversary. It didn't take long, those fifty years.  No, we didn't join the line dancing.
We had a very nice dinner at one of our favorite places, even sat on the porch because the weather was so nice.   After all this time he still gazes at me this way!
Tuesday we waited for the eclipse.  Here we were supposed to have 95% coverage and because it was a gorgeous day we sat on the porch playing cribbage while we waited, checking with our safety glasses every few minutes.

You can see by how much shadow there is we still had a way to go, but even with 95% coverage we had quite a bit of light and never felt like it was even twilight. Still, it was a milestone event for the entire U.S. and the anticipation was fun.


  1. 50 years, how wonderful! Yes, you can clearly see your husband looks at you with love in his eyes. That is the best part. I did not recognize the restaurant. Care to share a name? I go thru town fairly often and would love to have a place to stop with my husband. We will not make 50 years as we married late, but thankful for every year we have together.

  2. Congratulations for your 50 years, quite a milestone these days.

  3. Happy gold wedding anniversary :-)
