Junie's Place: 47 Years (Family interest)

47 Years (Family interest)

The card I gave Charles is on the left and the yellow one with the heart is mine from him!

On a past anniversary we ended up getting each other the exact same card! THIS time it almost happened again!

I opened his card first and thought, "Uut- ohh~ It's happened again!" I had looked at the same card for him that he chose for me...and for a moment I wasn't sure if that was my final choice! :) Well, turns out I found the other one that pleased me more for him!

These coincidences happen often with us! :) Goes with being married so long...we tend to think alike, more and more...and it even extends into picking out the cards with the words we want to say to each other!

We decided to have a little snack of cheese and wine while we opened our gifts to each other, and go out for dinner later in the evening.

Charles kept saying that he hoped I would like what he got me...but didn't feel he had got me enough! He had given me some new rose bushes before we left home and he had just the one small gift bag for me to open now! I didn't have a lot for him either...

SO...here we are with our gifts... Yes! I like the book! James Patterson is a favorite of mine! Hey- a kind of sexy sounding title there! But I can handle it! ;)

He was surprised with the fun gifts I gave him... LOL- The gator stepping stones for the garden are cool! The 'throw' is for his TV watching at night... And that HAT!! Very spiffy, don't you think! He looks like...well, Panama Jack... or maybe that old man from Key West! :) You know who I mean...the writer... Ernest Hemingway!
( now- this memory/connection has given me the desire to read some Hemingway novels again!)

As I was about to fold the bags away and tidy up things he said, "I think there's something else in that bag." :) He's sneaky! Look what else he had for me - another diamond ring! In the one pic I am saying, "I need more fingers!" ;)

OK- That's it! :)
