…A quick blog for a belated Happy Thanksgiving . Hope you all ate turkey, ham and mashed taters ‘til they came out your ears!! McGyver and I celebrated Thanksgiving remembering our parents and family members who have since passed with smiles and fond memories…We also shared our Wedding Anniversary with the Pilgrims yesterday..Yup, 43 years ago yesterday, November 22, 1969, Dennis Robert Cave and Donna Janeane Ross exchanged vows at the Congregational Church in Sandwich, IL…We met in May of 1969, got engaged that August, and married that November…whirlwind, I know….Kelly was born Sept. 5th, 1970….a very busy year for us!
Our wedding was at 1PM, the reception was in the church basement immediately following ( no liquor at this reception!!), and McGyver and I were on the road to Janesville, WI by 3PM …We were riding in style in Den’s deep turquoise 1967 Chevelle…4 speed on the floor and some loud pipes! No big fancy band and late partying for us…My parents were on a budget, and Dennis paid for our photos…The flowers were provided free of charge by the florist I worked for, and the honeymoon was in “Ya Hey Der” country….4 days of putting up with the Packer fans..
Left, me and my Sis….middle me and my Dad…and right, me and my date. (Is that a leer on his face??? )
Left, our vows..See that feather light turquoise hat on the right side, 3rd row of the church pews, down front???…Aunt Jeanette…no surprise, eh??
WHO ARE THOSE TWO YOUNG KIDS????
For those of you who are weak of stomach when it comes to incisions, you may want to skip these next pics…Dennis took these this AM after my shower…
Not too bad for just 3 days post surgery…I still have to wear my headgear 24/7 until next Thursday. That’s when the stitches come out…I hope I can at least shed the elastic during the day!!
Yesterday we met some family members at The Olde Tyme Inn for a Coke and a beer to celebrate our anniversary…yes,the Coke was mine …
THIS IS ONE ANNIVERSARY I SHALL NEVER FORGET…DENNIS, I LOVE YOU MORE EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, MY McGYVER…
