45 Years of Marriage

Wayne had champagne on ice to celebrate our anniversary when I returned from the Winston/Salem book fair on Saturday.  He's generally not a romantic kind of guy but he surprised me.  You have to remember this is the man who proudly presented me with a portable urinal for Valentine's Day one year.  (It was for me to use in the airplane he planned to build in our basement.)  Another time it was a pocket knife, which TSA quickly confiscated from me shortly thereafter.  But champagne?  My friends this is quite an improvement and evidence that a man can be properly trained--just remember it takes forty-five years or longer.

What a nice looking bride and groom! I recognized you in the picture Debbie by your smile. Beautiful dress. So you and Wayne have been married for 45 years. My husband and I have been married 44 years and our anniversary was August the 19th. Congratulations on your anniversary .

You both look so happy! And your dress is gorgeous. Congratulations on 45 years. You're only one year ahead of my hubby and me. That would be the hubby who gave me a wheelbarrow on our first anniversary, and a 50 pound bag of peat moss on our second (think spring anniversary, man who wants wife to garden). Do you have any pictures with Tink in them? I think I remember he was in your wedding.

My husband, Terry and I share your anniversary date and the same number of years. Love your books and the TV series. Christmas movies are among my all time favorites. Hoping each of us have many, many more happy years of marriage.

Debbie and Wayne -- Congratulations on 45 years of marriage. God is pretty awesome, isn't He? I laughed so hard when I read that Wayne had chosen for you a portable urinal one anniversary. Champagne on ice is much more share-able.
