Hello, my friends! Do you love the title of this post? I like a play on words, don't you?
Joy and Henry are our friends in England who celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in July of 2015. And when you have been married that long in England, you get a card from the Queen!
(Providing someone has sent along the correct paperwork, that is! And luckily for J & H, someone did so!)
We visited them in October and they posed for the photo above with their card. The following photos are from framed photos in their living room, but I liked them so much, I wanted to share with you!
Just look at that cake with the 65 on top! Isn't it lovely and don't they look so happy on their anniversary?
Here is a photo of a very happy memory for Joy and Henry...it is the wedding photo of their daughter, Anne. Joy and Henry also have a son, Henry, he is pictured at the far left. (If anyone remembers from my previous posts, Henry is one of Richard's oldest friends.)
Now... I will show you a photo that might surprise you....
I was tickled to find out that I know someone whose son-in-law had this as a job! (And they are really military men, make no mistake about it.)
We had a beautiful tea with Joy and Henry (and their son, Henry too!) and then, Henry, Sr. drove us to The De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill and we enjoyed a most pleasant day overlooking the sea.. And this was on October 21st!
Now, I hope Joy and Henry will see this post and remember this beautiful sunny day that we visited with them. And as a special treat, I have a clip from "Paddington Bear" and I think you will see why I chose this for this post! I give you Joy... and Henry! Thank you Joy and Henry, we loved your gracious hospitality while we were there and we hope to see you again soon!
