.......this a VERY old tree. DH and I feel this old today........today, Dec. 1, is our 45th wedding anniversary! WHERE did all the years go? We are old-fashioned and "home-bodies", so we stayed home and raked leaves and made art and ate lots of goodies that were NOT sugar-free! Heh, heh......
we will both be sore and "stove up" in the morning. And his blood sugar level will be up a little....but what the hell. We only go around once, and we were lucky enough to find each other as teenagers and have been together ever since. And to top off a great day, my online beading friend Grace just emailed me tonight that I had won her drawing for one of her beautiful hand-beaded bracelets!!! How lucky is that?! We are SO blessed. Thank you, Grace. Thank you, God.

Hi Phyll! Happy Anniversary - 45 years - what a wonderful blessing to be with your teenage sweetheart. Oh, and by the way - that tree is beautiful - wrinkles and all! My lover and I have been married only 15 years -- which seem like a long time until I hear the number - 45. God Blessed You Both!

Hi Phyllis..
Belated Happy Anniversary..
45 years.... How lovely....
I loved what Susan said..... The "old" tree is beautiful, just as you are...
I must tell you my DH and I have been to-gether since 1949....shhhhhh! did I say that out loud!!!! I snagged him for good when I asked him to a turn-a-bout dance and the rest is history!
We dated "steady" in our teen years and married in 1954....
I still feel young at heart and I think you do too.....
Sounds like you had a lovely day to-gether.... I say give me the simple life..... and it is getting more simple day by day..... VBG !!!
((((hugs))))
