39 YEARS AGO TODAY...................

I dressed up as a bride for Halloween ..........
My father blindfolded me...put me in the back seat of the local funeral homes limo....
and drove me to the St. Mary's church.....
I thought I was going "Trick or Treating"........I ended up bringing home a husband in my trick or treat bag.......
and it's been pretty scary ever since....
Happy Anniversay Boss......
I expect a trip to Paris for our 40th.....
Start planning!

p.s. dress made by me for a mere $40.
White velvet with emerald green velvet buttons.....my hair was not as long as it looks...there was a long green ribbon down the back of the hat.....
flowers were orange...green and yellow straw....
which I still have!

Happy anniversary to you two!! I should have known you got married on Halloween. Look at you - you were such a 1970s bride. I love that you made your dress. May you have many more anniversaries. Keep pushing for that trip to Paris next year. I didn't get to go until our 50th anniversary, but it was worth the wait. Sally
