Another Milestone Achieved

Not bike related but I'm pretty proud of this achievement so wanted to share.

Yesterday my wife and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary! Three children and 6 grandchildren later were still enjoying life and each others company. I sometimes wonder how many of the next generation will achieve anything close to this? I suspect not too many!

Congratulations! Cherie and I are only working on our 24th year, I always kid her that for murder I would have only gotten a 20 year sentence.

Congrats Lynn. And tell Janet the same, from her much younger, much sexier boyfriend.

OK, but I gotta say,"I guess SEXY must be in the eye of the beholder!"

Re: Another Milestone Achieved

Lynn,

Congratulations on doing all of the right things to make it work. It is never easy and to be successful, requires work.

Seems like I remember reading somewhere, maybe this thread or another, (I've been underwater most of the day!) that the only time a couple divorces is when they both want to at the same time. If only one wants the diverse, then the other works to keep it from happening.

Keep doing what you are doing....
