Yeah we had a real different 25th, But then again we've had a different marriage. When we got married, no one told me I couldn't be a married bachelor, after 1 year she gave me a choice, my buddies & booze or her,,,, I picked her!
After 14 years and 17 moves, she was still following me around the country, I finally closed the business,and went over the road trucking. Our 25th year was the year that decided to come off the road and be a stay at home hubby, not a dad, cause 22 years and 8 miscarriages were enough to end that idea. Anyway that year was one of the worst losses we ever had on the farm and money was tight. I refused to go back to driving, and we were really starting to feel the hurt. Finally on the day of our 25th, at 2:00 PM to the minute we found ourselves going down the isle again,, this time it was at walmart!!!
I still wasn't worried, as I just knew that we would have a 25th party from my family, (after all we show up for them evertime someone farts!!)
As it ended up, I made steaks, baked potatoes, and we split a pepsi,and got smashed on a freezer of home made Ice cream,,
That was it, no party, no gifts, no nuttin!
Just Us, and I'm not sure but what maybe it was one of the best I've had since the days when we started out with nothing!
I'm sure it's no help, and I know about the grieving, Donna's dad died on my 40th birthday, and the next year was dam rough one around here, but we got through it.
Guess I just feel lucky that the lady stayed around and put up with me all these years.
Good luck, Lady
Hope it all turns out great.

it's WallSal55 (the 55 for 1955 when I was born;
making me 47 now.) I knew it was going to be a rough year, but much more than I expected. I suppose that was the shocker. Anyway, I am still
hangin' in there. Hope everyone keeps it simple
this year, too. Quiet would be nice.
