40 Years Ago

Forty years ago today (it was a Friday that year) we went from her mother’s house to get a bag of ice for the drink cooler. On the way we stopped at the church and got married. We took the ice back and spent the afternoon trying to convince Mary’s grandmother that we had actually gotten married. That evening Mary went to her high school graduation ceremony. We spent our “honeymoon” night at my grandmother’s. The next day we drove from Texas to Georgia on our “honeymoon” to my mother’s house so Mary could meet my family. We brought Grandma along for the ride. We’re still doing goofy stuff together.

This is us 40 years ago give or take a day or two.
