Our Anniversary With Ralph McTell Song!



Walking To Beachy Head.  Eastbourne, England.
 
 Hey! See on the side of my blog that Richard and I have been married since 1983?  We were married on June 4th, 1983 so tomorrow will be our 30th wedding anniversary!   Time flies when you are married to the right person!
Please notice how Richard always walks a few steps behind me, treats me like a queen, he does!
 
Panola Mountain- November 2012

In this photo, Richard is trying to be shorter and I am trying to be taller.  I bet you think I could find a better photo of the two of us, right?  HA! You would be wrong!!

Richard wears his camera on his hip just like a Western film star carries his gun in a holster.  Always has that camera at the ready!  But you already know that, you have seen so many of his great photos!
What great exciting plans do we have for this special day? It involves Stone Mountain and butterflies, that is all I can tell you!
I am making my Chocolate "Orange You Glad You Married Me" Cake.  I hope my husband likes it!
 
Hey, I have a song on here for you.  The artist is Ralph McTell and he is from Croydon, England, just like Richard and they went to the same school, John Ruskin.  (Ralph is older and was gone by the time Richard was there.)  Richard can play the guitar and he sounds just like this, so I have it here for you to enjoy. 
Wish us luck in climbing a mountain tomorrow.  It will be HOT!
Oh! And my header photo? Those are the flowers that Richard's parents gave us last year for our anniversary when we were in England.  Look, I am still enjoying them THIS year!

    1. Thanks, Sandie. You know there are trails at Stone Mountain that DON"T involve climbing the mountain itself and they are beautiful too. See you there someday? :-)

  3. Happy anniversary, dear Kay and Richard!
    As soon as I saw the header photo, I knew that those were the flowers you were given last year in England for your anniversary. I remember you posting about that happy day!
    As for being treated like a queen, that's so nice and romantic... RJ is like that, too. Sometimes people smile when they see us together at a restaurant or elsewhere and RJ adjusts my chair for me, helps me into my coat or opens the door for me. Once a woman said to her husband "It'll pass", but more than two years on, "it" hasn't passed yet :-)

    1. Thanks, Meike!
      Yes, I felt sure that you would remember our flowers from last June!
      Good for RJ for being so considerate of you! (And on top of all that, he is a good dancer too!!) I think men are taught to be thoughtful and kind, you know that our son is the same way!

  6. 30 years, Kay? That is wonderful. Looks like you're married to an amazing man. But he's also married to an amazing woman. Congratulations to both of you. May you share many, many more beautiful years together. Yes, time certainly does fly when you're with the right person.
