Thirty-Five Wonderful Years

Today is our 35th wedding anniversary. We didn’t do anything much to celebrate because the cruise to Hawaii in January was our anniversary trip.

On Friday we did go out for a fish fry dinner at a place in Beaver Dam called Walkers. We had heard from several people that they have good food.

I thought the food was just average. They advertise their fresh baked pies, so I bought a piece of lemon meringue pie to take home for later. What a disappointment. I’ve never had such terrible meringue, it was like rubber. So, Walkers was a bust, and we won’t be eating there again.

Today I had my hair highlighted and cut. I really like how it turned out. Kevin worked and tonight we’re having leftovers for dinner. Tomorrow we’ll be golfing. Even though we aren’t doing anything special to celebrate, we are grateful for 35 wonderful years together.

On Wednesday I’m driving to Minnesota to visit our son Korey at the camp he works at. They are having staff family weekend again. I had a great time visiting him last year and am very much looking forward to this visit. I’ll be staying until Sunday and then driving back to have Father’s Day dinner with Kevin. Our son Eric will be visiting the week after Father’s Day because he’s on call that weekend.

Korey’s girlfriend Cathryn will also be at camp for a day. I haven’t seen her in two years so am very excited to see them both. 

My post yesterday on the cost of weddings brought some interesting comments. Sounds like most of you agree with my views. I really like Janie’s point stating “my big fear is they place so much importance on the wedding ceremony and not enough on the marriage itself”. After all, there wouldn’t be a TV show about Bridezillas if some people didn’t go overboard!

We had quite the pig out at the birdfeeder this morning. There were lots of sparrows all vying for a spot. It was a hoot to watch. Can you see the two on the right trying to get a spot at the feeder? The corn behind us is really growing fast. It seems like it grows a couple of inches a day.



P1130025I picked these pretty wildflowers on my walk last week. I pulled out the WonderVase I bought on eBay last year. I didn’t use it much over the winter since there aren’t many wildflowers to pick in the desert :) I like this little vase. It folds flat for storage, and is easy to set up for use.




Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!


  1. Wishing you a very happy anniversary. That's quite an achievement.

  2. Congrats on the anniversary; you're only yrs behind us! It's wonderful to hear people who have made it through life with aplomb and love.

    As for the resto recommendations. I'm always amused by the places people call Good, Great, etc. There's no accounting for matters of taste.

    Away We Go

  3. Good for you guys, 35 years is sure a long time. Happy anniversary!

    We try not to go to restaurants anymore. Don't see the value for the money unless we're in Mexico! Rather buy a couple of good steaks and cook them up myself.

    Today I had my hair highlighted and cut. I really like how it turned out.

    Where's the picture...?

  4. Yeah, where's the picture? :) Happy anniversary!

  5. Happy 35th Anniversary and congratulations. Well done and many more to come!

  6. Congratulations on 35 years together. For years now, we've tried to go on a special trip for special events -- anniversaries, birthdays -- so we often don't make a big fuss on the actual day either.

  7. Happy anniversary! Cheers to many more wonderful years together.

  8. Congratulations on 35 years of marriage! Next year my husband and I will hit that same milestone and we are in discussions already as to how to celebrate it.


We'd love to hear from you!
