Our 40th Anniversary Tomorrow

Yup, that’s what day it is tomorrow. Patty and me, 40 years of wedded bliss and still going strong–we give God the thanks for that.

We met 40 years ago, working at The Bayshore Independent in Keyport, NJ. Once a week, at least, we got our supper from the Keyport Fishery. And it’s still there! The man who owns it now must be a genius, because he’s kept everything–including the high quality of the food–just the way it was. So tomorrow we shall dine in style.

We both agree, those 40 years seem like they went by like a shot. That must mean we enjoyed them.

Anyhow, don’t be too surprised if this blog’s a little slow tomorrow.

    Congratulations, you two blessed people. If you didn’t do a blog tomorrow at all, I would certainly understand. May the next years to follow be just as great as the last.

    Congratulations and may God continue to bless you!

    Congratulations, Lee and Patty! What a blessing God has given you. Don’t worry about us here tomorrow – except maybe for our morning hymn 🙂 We can always go milling around in the archives.

    Blessings to you both. Enjoy your day, and your dinner!
    (Didn’t something go kaflooey last year? – the restaurant forgot your reservation, or something like that, I think.). So, besides a glorious celebration of 40 blessed years together, you can doubly enjoy it 🙂

      Yeah–last year we were supposed to have lobsters for our anniversary dinner, and when I went to pick them up… they didn’t have ’em! Even though I had reserved them. Wit you well, I was marvellously wroth!
      So this year it’ll be the Keyport Fishery, which has never failed us.

    Happy anniversary, y’all! It’s so special that the original restaurant is still there; I hope you and Patty have a lovely day 😀
