Happy anniversary to us

So, how did we fare on our diets while in Branson?  Click HERE to find out.

Today is mine and Cliff's 40th anniversary.  I would have forgotten entirely about it, I think, had our son-in-law not mentioned it a couple of days ago.  We're not much to make a big deal out of holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries.  I used to use this as a good excuse to eat out, but we've had a little too much eating out the past few days.  We got a really cute card from our daughter (yes Russ, it was Hallmark).

I will say that 40 years sure goes fast.

Any man who gives you a Hallmark card is a man worth holding on to!!  Not to be a brat or anything -- but you two got married when I was two months old!  ;)

Love,
Russ

Congradulations on your *40th Anniversary* Donna and Cliff.
I agree the years seem to have gone by very fast.
Our *44th Anniversary* is tomorrow June 16th.
Don had just turned 21 and I was almost 18 and just
graduated from High School.

WOW 40 years. Thats a long time.
Me and my hubby was married 15 years in march and that seems like a long time.
Congratulations and happy anniversary.
It's a real mile stone now a days to be married that long. So you guys should do something special. But we don't make big deals about special days either so i can understand.


Take care  :-)
