…yep, we had the traditional wedding and the throwing of rice..In that right photo, I just realized Dennis IS Dracula..check those canines!!

Anyway…our  kids were all home for the weekend to celebrate with us and I will post photos later..As for right  now, Dennis and I are packing the Hiker. We have to go up to our elders tomorrow and make sure they get some groceries. Our cousin is going to take over while we are gone..and by gone, I mean Wednesday  morning..However, the bombastic bumpkin weather forecasters are looking their crystal ball and seeing 3-5 inches of snow coming tomorrow night!…SAY WHAAAAAT??? We shall plan on leaving Wednesday morning unless it is just too bad, in which case my evil twin will take over and I will become the Wicked Witch of Center St. yet again…Stay tuned!!

  4. Wow, 45 years is sure a long time to know someone. Good for you guys in sticking together. Kelly just asked me tonight if you guys had left for Florida yet. Said I wasn't sure so in the morning I'll have an answer for her when she gets up.

    1. Al, we are trying to leave this Wednesday morning, but it's very hard to pack the Hiker in 28 degrees, 35 mph winds and snow...We had to pull the slides back in..It wouldn't have been good to have them freeze OPEN...can't drive down I39 that way!!!

  5. Happy Anniversary. Interesting flag you had there in your header pic, especially for Illinois.:-) Hoping you get a break in the weather for your getaway. It's supposed to be a beautiful week in the South.

    1. Jerry...That was our Best Man's 1967 Camaro...and he drove up from Dallas, TX to be in our wedding...hence the Confederate flag in the back window...Hold down the fort here in Illinois while we are gone!
