    My 40th wedding anniversary today

    Forty years ago today (20th Jan) hubby and I tied the knot and I am still pleased to stay that there is no sign of fraying. We decided to stay home and celebrate locally - that was the best decision that we made due to all the extreme heat and fires that we are currently experiencing in our part of the world.

    Friday morning we started off with a champagne breakfast at a restaurant close to the beach - good decision - as it was the hottest day on record in Sydney. Yesterday we had lunch at our favourite restaurant and today we are having a family get together for lunch which is being catered for.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Congratulations!!! You celebrations sound wonderful.
    We celebrated our 51st 12-30-12. Just went out for a late lunch of sea food, my favorite.

    I hope the hot weather breaks very soon. Our summer was very hot last year. Broke all records.

    Well done and congratulations. My middle step son just got married the other day (the 18th)....I really hope he and his beautiful bride can be celebrating as you have 40 years down the track.

    Sending best wishes to the happy couple earthwalker.

    When you "walk down the isle" you never think about 40 years on. Now that I look back on the last 40 years I do wonder where they have gone.

    Thank you for your wishes.
