40 YEARS..........................

I was doing the laundry the other day when I heard the Boss coming down the stairs to
see what I was doing....
He was whistling which wasn't unusual since we are a big family of
Whistlers.....
It's what he was whistling that kinda surprised me.....
So I asked him if he realized what the tune was......
He said "Ofcourse....it's our wedding song"....
You see 40 years ago today when we married I was as unconventional
As I am today....
Instead of the traditional wedding march I came down the aisle to
Irving Berlin's 1926 Classic song "Always".....
From my favorite movie of all time
"Since You Went Away"
The organist also played the song "Together"
from the same movie....

For those of you who are not familiar with "Always" here are the
Lyrics.....

I'll be loving you Always
With a Love that's True Always......
When the things You Plan...Need a helping Hand....
I will Understand....Always....Always....

Days may not be Fair Always....
That's when I'll be There Always....
Not for just an Hour...
Not for just a Day....
Not for just a Year....
But Always...

It's nice to know that after 40 years.....the Boss may not know the words...
But he still knows the Tune....
Happy Anniversary Boss....

Happy Anniversary! I so "get it". We were married on the bank of the river in Alva, FL and when we were "remarrried" (God bless us all) we played Jim Croce's Time In A Bottle...lol...the priest about had a heart attack. Hugs and enjoy your day- Diana

Happy Anniversary, Sue!
Same year as us, same style wedding dress, the puffy sleeves! My bridesmaids wore the hats, and I walked down the aisle alone. My dad had died, and no one could take his place. A little unusual then, but what I wanted.
Many more happy ones!

Happy anniversary to you both! You were such a cute young couple. I love the unconventional music... makes your ceremony personal. But tsk, tsk, it wouldn't have been allowed in our recent wedding.. The Wedding Song by Peter, Paul, and Mary got the ax in the prelude. So did the kiss at the altar, but they took one step off and kissed anyway. Makes for a funny memory!

Happy 40th to you and The Boss!

Janet said...

Love the dress Sue; it reminds me of the dress I had in 1973! I so wanted to go without the veil, but alas, my mother insisted!

Happy Anniversary always...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

♥ Hope you had a wonderful anniversary, Sue!♥

I had "folk singers" singing at my wedding ...doesn't that sound old? They sang Peter Paul and Mary's "The Wedding Song" among a few other tumes during the ceremony.
