Forever Young











My husband recently turned 60. He is the youngest 60-year-old ever! His biggest claim to fame is, he was carded for beer at the grocery store when he was 45! And all of our friends know that, because he told everybody! We had a small surprise party, which was loads of fun. We created a "paper quilt" using a picture from his high school yearbook. As you can see, he hasn't changed a bit! Enjoy the pictures!

Nostalgia

I am hopelessly nostalgic. I love going to high school football games, even though my kids have graduated. I love 4th of July parades, complete with floats, and marching bands, and lawnmower precision drill teams. I love looking at old photo albums, and sharing new pictures. I love sharing family stories with my daughters. I love using old dishes, and linens, and furniture. I love keeping old traditions alive, and creating new ones, too.

My friend and technical advisor, who helped me set up my blog, asked me why I am doing this. I guess the easiest answer is because I love to read and respond to other blogs. I love the learning, and the sharing of information among friends. Welcome to my blog, and I look forward to hearing from you!
