Father time and Mother nature

Both of them are up to no good. What used to take me 10 minutes now takes 30 and that is one of the more upbeat things I can tell you about. I have been sorting through pictures I have saved for the past 17 years. I have them all on an external hard drive. I admit I had not sorted and labeled like I should have when I put them on the external drive but I did get them saved at least. It too has been a mixed blessing- always fun to look at old pictures but in so doing something else that you should be doing does not get done.
I do tell people who think their pictures are not flattering, if they wait 10 years they will have a very different opinion. My spare tire is much bigger now than it was 10 years ago!
So for want of something really cool to post I will give you some pictures from an earlier time.

I just noticed the photo bomb in the back but I will leave it in.

Marlene and Bernard's 66th anniversay

Saturday, Butch and I were invited to help Marlene and Bernard celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary. Bernard related it was a fairly warm January day in Iowa the day they married 66 years ago.
We played several hands of cribbage before going to dinner at Logan's steak house and then several more when we returned. I think the win/lose tally ended up about even. Marlene and I are partners against the guys when we play. We had a very good time and the meal was the best I have enjoyed for quite some time.
