I am very blessed

I am not sure what to say or where to begin.  I guess it really doesn’t matter.

Yes, I am bragging…I have every right to.

I am pretty sure that a lot of my generation didn’t “hang” in there.

But we did….

Huh-Huney said something to me the other night while we were watching “reality” tv (hehehe) or maybe it was my other favorite shows “Pickers” where two guys go around the country and find other peoples junk that ends up being their treasures…

besides the point…he said I said 25 years ago…in a letter to him…(I can’t believe he remembered this…he has a really good memory lol) but anyway he told me I said:

“If ever you find yourself at the end of your rope…just tie a knot, it is much easier to hang on”.

Well we have hung on…for 41 years and it has been a crazy fun, exciting, roller coaster, scary at times but totally worth the RIDE.

The knot seems to be working…..even if your hanging by a thread sometimes…

“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.” Thomas Jefferson

I swear I did not copy Thomas Jefferson 25 years ago.  I didn’t even have the internet 25 years ago… and I certainly was not versed in what the famous Tomas Jefferson said.

It is just ironic that  I wrote that in a letter to my husband during some difficult times in our young married life.

Remember last year when I wrote:  “He sends me Roses”

Well he still does….and probably will for another 41 years, if I am that blessed….



I love roses.  There are a lot of beautiful flowers with fancy names and vibrant colors…but a red rose…ahhhh there is just something about it….

41 years…that’s a really long time…wedding crop linda


I was just a baby….he looks like he is going to burst into an “Elvis” song or something…LOL I love this guy.

linda's eyes sorry honey I know this  pic is a couple of years ago…but it was a fun day….bike riding in the rain…I know, your eyes aren’t even all the way open…but I couldn’t find a recent picture..we need to take one tonight..hehehe

Happy Anniversary to us…
