Hi Jen. I'm back after a week of flu. It was tough getting over that nasty flu but I'm happy to be back on my feet.

Happy Golden Wedding Anniversary to your BIL and sister. It's a beautiful milestone in life. God has been very kind to bless them with 50 blissful years.

Thank you for sharing these memorable photos.

Congrats to Pauline and her hubby! They are so lucky in many ways, especially that they have both lived long enough to celebrate 50 years. Ken's Dad died two weeks before their 50th anniversary, and his Mum was almost as upset about that as she was about losing him. Love the way you have used the wedding photos as well as the anniversary photos in your post here, Jen!

Congratulations to Pauline and Alex! That is indeed a milestone to be proud of. Last December would have been Annie & my 40th and this coming November would have been Pat & Sherman's 50th. But instead Pat and I are working toward our second.

They just don't take wedding pictures like they used to.

Those look like the fifties, for sure.

Love that look on his face in the 4th picture.

Blessings on them!
