Mister's aunt & her husband went, too.

Mister did a great job taking pictures~

73 years together...can you believe it?

Pappaw got lots of hugs from all his girls~

I have NEVER heard of such an occasion!! unbelievable!! What a couple!

This is absolutely amazing!! What a wonderful marriage they must have. The man who married Nicholas and Jill said "marriage isn't about marrying the perfect person, it's about marrying an imperfect person and loving them perfectly." It looks like this is how your Mister's grandma and grandpa viewed their marriage. Congratulations to the happy couple!

P.S. I'll be using that quote in a blog I have scheduled for this week! Also, I sure wish you'd take this rain we've been getting since you want it. It's supposed to start raining again Wed. through Sunday. Good thing Larry and I don't have big plans for the 4th!

WOW!!! That is so wonderful! 73 years! Geez, I am happy that I have made it 4 (not that I doubted it, but you know what I mean!). You have a much greater appreciation for marriage once you are married, does that make sense?

Happy 73rd Anniversary to them!
