Love and Perseverance

1947

2007

July 3rd always means one thing to me: Happy 63rd Anniversary to my mom and pop who have succeeded in their plan to grow old together. Today...we celebrate!

It's interesting how similar these two photos are; I guess once a cool cucumber and a pretty girl, always a cool cucumber and a pretty girl.

Well that just made my day (and reminded me that my parent's 42nd is fast approaching). You've got two cool cucumbers and two pretty parents. It was a pleasure to hang out with them that day and I'm glad that i could record some of the fun.
