25 years ago...

My wife Gertie and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary today.
Quite an achievement on behalf of my wife I can tell you. She must see something worth while... I haven't yet figured out what... :)

We had planned to go to New York, like we did 5 years ago, but instead decided to have a long weekend in Paris with our children and their friends Bob and Brenda.
A terrific weekend it was. It was so good to spend this kind of time on an occasion like this, with our family together. Those moments; that's what you do it for.

We had a little bad luck with the weather though; but even cold temperatures and lots of rain could not spoil the weekend.

Congratulations to you and your wife. Its great to be able to celebrate with your family no matter where you are ... But Paris sounds like a great choice.

Thanks Michael. Yes Paris was a good choice, except for the rain. It couldn't spoil the fun.
