So, finishing up the first day of the countdown to a major anniversary, I’ve got to say the day had its ups and downs.
Ups included just being able to be together and enjoy our company, seeing some family, sharing meals and splitting a slice hot apple pie with ice cream — after devouring our crab cake sandwiches. Not to mention fresh flowers!
The downs included having to sit in the basement waiting for the tornado watch to be lifted so we could go out to dinner — so we missed the “Blue-hair Specials.”
But the storms brought rain, which meant no watering after dark!
Now, I am ruminating over snips and snaps — this and that — may I show you?
I found the bill for the caterer for our reception:
I came across a note to Doug from a Washington Judge. Here’s The Story Behind the Judge Bacon’s Note

Looking forward to the second day of the countdown to a major anniversary, I don’t take anything for granted.
wow! lovely wedding. imagine what that reception would have cost today!! what an interesting honeymoon:) by the time you came home, i’m guessing you would either have loved each other a lot or hated each other:) glad it was fun!
It was a five week “tour” –coming back to reality was hard! Doug’s mother said if we could live out a couple of suitcases for five weeks that was a good sign. lol
Love the memories! That was some honeymoon! Are you still in touch with your bridal party?
It was a big one — Doug discovered all the note he took of our adventure — yes– we have stayed in touch with our friends — not as well as we should have
What wonderful documentation of the beginning of your life as husband and wife. The newspaper article gives me geographic perspective on how it was possible for you to meet. I had you, Barbara, living in Stoneleigh and Doug in Dallas. Now…for the rest of the story. Your honeymoon!!! Oh my goodness! Happy Anniversary dear friends. May God continue to bless you and keep you in mighty ways. OX
Love the story and the photos. Love YOU! Happy Anniversary and thanks be to GOD!
Priceless memories, love to you both!
