October 3, 2012
Good morning. Mr. B, today's our day. Our first wedding took place on October 3. Just a nice quiet wedding on a bridge in a beautiful park. Immediately after our wedding dinner, we took off for a four day business/fun trip. Mother in law was not very happy about the way we did this. So, we repeated the whole ceremony ten days later (on the 13th) in a hall so that all our friends and family could attend. Each year, we did it all over again until finally the justice of peace told us "Enough is enough. You can't get any more married than you already are."
Want to know how Mr. B proposed to me? Well, we knew we belonged together, but because our children were raised so differently from each other, we needed to wait for them to finish school. One of our favorite TV programs was Wheel Of Fortune, and we used to make little side bets to see which of us guessed the most puzzles.
One evening, we were having dinner in a little cafe and watching our program. Mr. B asked what I wanted to bet, and said that if I won, we would get married. Well, guess who won? Yup! Me. We had a business trip coming up, so we decided on a nice quiet ceremony in the park. And the renewing our vows every year was his idea!
Here's a layout I made and posted a few years ago. It shows us growing old together. The clip on the right where Mr. B is wearing a flower is our wedding day. The background is a rather pretty sunset in Suffolk,Virginia. I went under the tree so that I could shoot through the branches.
I had to go through a lot of disks and drives to find this layout. I also found a few others that I was so hoping were not among the missing. I'm feeling a little better now that I've found them. Today's a good day.
Now that I've chewed your ear off, I think I'll get dressed and take Pogo out for a little walk in the grass. So far, he's not really too crazy about the $40 potty patch that I bought for him. I keep hoping though! Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
