Today is mom & pop’s 50th wedding anniversary — congratulations, おめでとう!
Being a numbers guy, I went online and learned that only 5% of U.S. marriages make it to 50 years.
At dinner today we looked at mom & pop’s wedding pictures and heard some old stories. I think my favorites were the wedding reception stories (open bar, and no D.U.I. laws back then), and how uncle got his nickname Frank.
This Friday we’re leaving for a two-week trip to Japan to celebrate and visit with family. We’re all looking forward to it. Thanks again to Carol and Sue for all of their hard work planning the trip!
