Feeling happy

Unread postby sury » Thu Dec 11, 2014 9:44 pm

Celebrating 27 years of marital bliss today and found a photo taken at our engagement in 1987
and one taken a week ago (at least crop of it).
For some the dour look and smiling faces would have been juxtaposed. I suppose I belong to the lucky class.

The reason we were serious in the first photo was that there was a ritual fire couple of feet away and
the smoke was causing our eyes to hurt, and not helped by the serious hangover for me from all the
drinking on the eve of the engagement ceremony. :lol: I downloaded this one from FB.

Congratulations, Sury, to you both. :D

A nicely wrapped quarter-of-a-century and some which sounds nice and blessed. Most aspects in the photos may have showed little differences but the expressions in the eyes remain the same.

To the journey of the next quarter then! : )

Thanks for sharing,

Yildiz

Sury, She still looks pretty after all these years!

And you look... uh... um... older. And uh... wiser! Yeah that's it! :P

I do like you better with the beard, but them I'm pretty sure my vote doesn't count in this!

Best of luck on the next 27!

Thank you Dusty. I have always told my wife I have better taste than she does.
"Look who married whom"? :lol: I do look older - yes. Wiser? Debatable. Ask my wife.
If I were to sport the same beard today I would look 27 years older with nary a
black follicle remaining. :D

Congratulations on your anniversary.

Looking at your mustache, I think that if you had a beard you might have a FEW black threads among the silver. :wink:

After all, you are still a young kid. On the first of this month SWMBO and I celebrated our 53rd anniversary.

For many years I have pointed out to her that she married me when she was young and foolish. As evidence, here is 1961:

Tom,
Thank you and thank you for sharing the photo.
I will let your comment stay since I do not know
how you looked in 1961. May be she was not foolish,
only you would know. :wink:

Congratulations on 53 years of marital bliss.

Sury
P.S. In my case the day after marriage, I ended up with SWMBO :lol:
