Today is our anniversary, 48 years,
Really can it be that long, in many ways if seems like yesterday that we spent the day getting ready, my hair done, and nails, (they needed it, I had just refinished and stained Memaw’s end table and piano stool) how did you spend the day, Max?
Daddy and I drove into town alone and he said “it’s not too late to back out, but if you don’t, you can not run home to Daddy anymore.” I told him I was sure about it.
The Wedding —don’t remember a lot, Uncle Virgil sang the Lords Prayer and it was beautiful, we had roses for our mothers, a memory candle and the service was super short.
I remember this great smile and wink from Max as I came down the isle, wow, he had me at the smile.
We practically ran out of the building, smiling and laughing. Charlie tried to kidnap me because his daddy did momma that way on her wedding day, Max was warned though and they nearly pulled me into!
They chased us out of town and we wrecked Doyle’s brother-in-law’s new Caddy!! No one was hurt and we finally left town for Clovis — The King’s Inn. (now there is a story in a story)
We stayed at Red River in the mountains and it was wonderful. Several strange things happened on this trip, we laughed a lot, learned a little about stuff, but mostly we just were together and that has not changed, we are not the couple to go our separate ways, we do things together–sometimes work and things keep us busy and apart, but when we go to have fun–it is always together or as a family.
Looking back, what I remember most is the laughter–even when we were hearing ugly stuff from next door–we can laugh about it now. It is part of “our” story.
and thanks for the lovely flowers, Max!!!!
