27 Years In The Blink Of An Eye…

Happy Anniversary! ❤️🍾💥 I am a blessed man! I’m fortunate enough to have a job that I love, a great family & Im married to a virtuous woman 👩🏻  Again – blessed! 27 years of marriage today… In the blink of an eye! It doesn’t seem possible that this much time has passed… It literally seems like yesterday that we walked up that isle… 

We had a great group of groomsmen and bridesmaids to help us that day!

We have taken a few days off to celebrate and wind down. Nothing fancy, just some time together. 

Jo’s grandfather walked her down the isle that day. I found this picture of him and it did my heart good. He was a very special person in Jo’s life. And our life together. ❤️

Thanks for all the calls and texts wishing us a happy day! And here’s to another 27 years together! 

Cheers 🥂

Callin’ It in …

I just had to amend my Blog today… it was on deck to publish… and I forgot to pull the trigger 😳 

This was last years Anniversary photo… a 26 year comparison shot. Not to shabby 😊

I, WE are taking a few day’s off to celebrate and to try and slow it down a little… Jo and I always try to plan some time around our Anniversary & we both look forward to time together. The years are literally flying by… But, I’ve apparently been having fun, because I haven’t really noticed 😊 

So, we are gonna take a break for a few days and try to relax. I will share some pics from the road over the next few days. 

Thanks 🙏🏻 Have a great weekend!

On the road again…

We spent another day riding the backroads & some main streets too  😊 I really enjoy doing things like this. Meeting local people, seeing the natural beauty of our own state, it’s very refreshing. Jo has been the pilot and I am the navigator with a map & an iPhone… Nothing and nowhere is safe 😂

Here are a few more pics from the road – 



From the road… Bumin’ around…

Ive got a pretty cool wife. When I asked her what she wanted to do for our 25th. Wedding Anniversary, she didn’t say what I expected. I figured a cruise or island trip or the like. No sir. She said why don’t we just mess around and take a slow trip around some cool spots in the state. Drive the back roads and see where they take us… WOW! That just hit the spot & sounded perfect! So that’s what we have been doing the last few days. I’m going to put a few pictures on here today and a few more tomorrow and so on and just see where else this road leads 😊

25 years and we still have fun doing things together. Here’s an exact 25 year before and after.

 

 

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
