Today is the The Day—Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Today is the shortest day of the year AND the longest night of the year.  Everything forward from this time brings us longer and longer days (and colder and colder temps, until March, that is.)

our-handsToday is also our 49th Wedding anniversary!

My we were young!  Terry was 23 and I 18.



Our elderly hands tell a story of their own (Terry is 72 and I am 67)…work worn and (in my case—full of age spots), but after living life on a daily basis, I guess it is to be expected.

We were both farm kids.

And we raised our kids on this very farm.  Over the years we milked cows, raised spring’n heifers, kept cows on the farm for weed control

We also had  rabbits, sheep, goats, a horse or two, cats, dogs and chickens.

We still farm, although not with as many animals.

49 years…next year 50!  What a wonderful thing it is!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. What a wonderful landmark! You’ve grown up together, lived life together, and I hope you’ll have a peaceful third age together. Many congratulations, all good wishes, and a certain amount of envy (having met my husband late in life, I’ll never live long enough to celebrate this particular anniversary myself!).

  2. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!!!! I’ve always thought that our hands should be honored. They work, play, love, caress, speak volumes without a word, and aging hands just tell of a life well lived.
    Hope you and Terry have a very Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy New Year!!!!
