Hats off to you. I admire couples like you.

PEA said...

How wonderful that you two are still together after all those years! It certainly is rare in this day and age to have a marriage last that long. Wishing you many more years of wedded bliss:-) xoxo

Autumn said...

10 years longer than us. Well done!

Julie said...

I don't think it is rare,I think it is wonderful that you two have stayed together this long.:) Have a great weekend.

Jane said...

AWWWWW, weren't ya'll cute in your matching sweaters. A very handsome couple, then and now. Being happily married as long as you have been is, unfortunately, rare these days. But what a blessing!
We will be celebrating 34 years in August!!!!

Peggy said...

You still make a cute couple! have a great weekend.

PastorMac's Ann said...

I think this is perfect for this theme. I love it. Again, you are such a blessing to the blogosphere...and your marriage proves that it's "possible".

I appreciate all your prayers and encouragement this week. I love just how connected I feel with so many people through blogging.

:-) Susan

Y'all are such a sweet couple. You have us beat in number of yrs married; not by much though. August will be our 38th yr. :) Bonnie

Gattina said...

We are also rare, lol ! 38 years that's not bad either.
BTW re the strange behaviour of your cat, I think maybe she doesn't like women because of a bad experience. That's possible, I know a cat who hated men ! If only you feeds her and you speak to her without touching her maybe she will gain confidence. Otherwise I can't explain that behaviour. Not talking to her is not such a good idea because that only confirms what she already thinks : women are bad ! Cats are intelligent and they smell if somebody likes them or not.

Congratulations to the both of you. What a wonderful picture. It is sad that nowadays 43 of marriage is rare. My husband and I will be celebrating 27 years next month. I hope we look as great as you both at 43 years.

What wonderful photographs. And, you have no idea how rare that is! You're so lucky to still have each other.

BTW, I love flip/flops. I can hardy wait for flip/flop weather.
