Half a Century

Celebrating Fifty Years
Photo curtosey of dawnzy58

This is half of 100 years, many things has happened, our lives are made better by many different inventions. We have went from just plain old TV to HDTV, to very narrow screens to ones the size of your front room wall. Large cars to mini-coopers, from plain old phones to cell phones.

Fifty years ago on July 30th, 1959, my husband and I stood in front of a Justice of the Peace and said our wedding vows, wow, it is hard to believe it has been that long. I have posted our wedding pictures on my Family Pictures page. Today we will celebrate with the family.

We have two sons, Douglas Wayne, who will be 49 years old in September. Our son Ronald Thomas, was 46 years old this last June. We are still very active, our son's help us with things we can not do anymore, we are pretty healthy, except Doug and myself have contacted poison ivy, boy is this stuff itchy. We got it from hanging up a bird nest just off our lawn in the tree (poison sumac), which I did not know it was one.

I want to thank my friends for coming and commenting on all my posts over the last year. Hope all of you have wonderful anniversary's, birthday's and birth's of your children and grand-children, just have a wonderful life, God bless all of you.



Congratulations on your Golden Wedding Anniversary, time indeed does pass so quickly
and there are so many twist and turns in life,
some for the better some not, but I suppose we have to endure the not so good times to appreciate the happy times.
Have a really wonderful day both of you with your family.
Take care.

Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary to you both and may this day be filled with many memories and a lot of happiness. Enjoy your day with the family and I hope you have many more happy years together.

. We just celebrated our 51st on July 3rd. And I agree, time does fine by very quickly.

I hope the poison ivy clears up quickly for you and your son. In the mean time, enjoy the day together.

Dear Margaret ~~ Congratulations to you and Charles on your 50th anniversary. How quickly time flies and the years go by. May you both have many more happy years together. I am so glad
your sons do some things for you. Yes Geoff has a wonderful home and he and his wife Jo have worked hard to get it built and decorated so nice
inside. Poor blondes, they cop a lot, but they are only jokes. Take great care my friend and enjoy the celebrations. Love, Merle.

Dear Margaret. Congratulations on 50 years of marriage. You are quite a rarity in this day and age. Anyway, I hope you have many more happy years together.

I hope your anniversary was a wonderful day for you both. What an accomplishment being married 50 years. I bet there are very few people in this category. I wish you many more happy years together.

Hi Margaret:)

I am amazed to note you have been married for 50 long years. My best wishes to you and your dear husband on your 50th wedding anniversary. May God bless both of you abundantly for long, long wedded life of bliss and happiness.

I agree with you Margaret that times have changed and times are changing still faster now. New and new innovations and inventions are flooding the market every day and sometimes we older generations find it difficult to understand and handle.

Have a lovely day Margaret,

Happy (Belated) Anniversary. Hope you and Wayne have many more. We celebrated ours on the 12th of July (54 years). That's a long time no matter how you look at it. We also got married with a Justice of the Peace. Happy week-end.
