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.
