    Red face Celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary today !!!!

    How can it be that many years since we tied the knot? A central Iowa wedding-darn cold and 2 ft of snow on the ground--then we went to Minneapolis on for a weekend honeymoon--was even colder and more snow there. Of course, we were a lot younger but should have gone south instead of north!!!!!! Celebrated today by going shopping at JoAnn's (well, I went in the door-saw the checkout line going to the back of the store and only 2 checkouts, no carts or baskets to be had and went right back out), ate out for lunch, went to the grocery store and home to watch Iowa and Iowa State both lose football games this afternoon. Iowa State basketball tonight so hope it turns out better. Hope we make it for another year!!!!!!!

    Congratulations on your 55th. We will be 50 next year. Not surprised about lines at J's. I would have done the same thing. Hope your lunch was grand. Here's to 56 for you guys (clink clink). cheers.

    Congratulations on 55 years together. We were married on a Thanksgiving Saturday, too (41 years ago). This year was a foggy night and steers got out; DH, son and DIL mended pen fence while I put little ones to bed.

    Oh and a sad day in Cyclone country here.
