That’s the amount of years my maternal grandparents would be married today.


I don’t know why this stuck in my head today. Their last anniversary they celebrated was their 50th, and I was a little kid in grade school. All our family were in a row home in Manayunk and it was a fabulous party. Maybe that’s why it stuck in my head.It was kind of funny, because I could remember what we ate, why my grandparents wore, and the weather of the day.

Today, ask me what I had for lunch. **pregnant pause**

They say you have clearer memories of your early days as you get older.I am starting to believe that.

I am sending a Happy Anniversary to heaven, as I know there is a big party going on up there.They know how to do it right! LOL
