Happy Birthday




Today is my husband's birthday. We've been married 35 years.
Since you've all seen many photos of me as a child I thought you might like to see some of Doug.
 That's Doug's mother in the background. Her birthday is this week too. We will all be going to Joe's Crab Shack on Sunday to celebrate.




Here's Doug in Tombstone a few years ago.
And both of us at another Tombstone event.
One of the greatest things about being married this long is sharing memories.

Happy Birthday Doug.

  5. Happy birthday, Uncle Doug.

    Well, I finally did it, Auntie. In two days I have read through your entire blog from beginning to end. I love reading the family stories about you, Granny (her sister, Betty), Nana and the ladies before her. I, too, wish for more stories about Nellie whom I think Great great grandma Jennie looked so much like. I am amazed at their stories and find that my situation is common through out our family history. I am glad that you and Doug have proven to be the exception to this history. Congratulations on this being your 35th year.

    Lots of love to you both.

    1. Thank you. Sadly I don't know as much about Nellie as I wish I did. I do have a faint memory of her. I'll see what I can do. The issues seem to kind of skip generations; although not always.I mostly notice the strength of our line of women: Nancy, Nellie, Jennie, Nana, Granny, your mom, you. wow.
      Love you and miss you.

  7. I learned that if everybody is busy cracking their crab there isn't much time for conversation. Friendly or otherwise. lol
