This a very special week and it comes every 12 months. It is 48 years this week and for me the day is August 22. The love of my life and best friend agreed to marry me and we said our, I does on August 22 1965. People say our honey moon lasted at least 20 years, well I have news for them in my opinion it is going on still. I have been retired now for about a year and a half and we are together pretty much 24-7 and we are having a wonderful time. When my wife reads this I want her to know that I love her just as much today as I did when we said our wedding vowels those few short years ago.
The reason this week is so special is my cousin John and his wife Nancy married the 20th of the same year and then came to Amarillo for our wedding. Charlotte’s cousin Richard who was my boss at the time was my best man and his wife Laverne was the maid of honor was married on the 22nd the year before. So I would like to take this time to wish them a happy 48th and 49th wedding anniversary.
