Fabulous Forty!

I am very proud to announce that we are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.  We were married in Berlin, with the civil ceremony (required in Germany) on May 12 and the church ceremony (optional) 40 years ago today.  I am also very happy to report that we are still delightfully happy together, like and love and support each other, and that we still have fun!  Here is my favorite photo from our wedding day, made shortly after the ceremony.  I also wish all of our friends out there happiness,  joy, and honest respect and appreciation for each other—and to all of you moms, happy Mother’s Day, too!

      Thanks a lot for the former! As for the latter, I can’t take any credit for it, except that I was there and helped, in a small way, to add interest to the subjects, and that it was made with my camera. If I had made the shot, it would have been considerably sharper, of course. But I do love how he caught my lovely bride, and will be forever grateful for this fine portrait of the two of us.

    It was, indeed, a great anniversary, Adrian. It included breakfast in bed, a beautiful teriyaki steak on the grill, and some lovely wine to go with it. Thanks for your good wishes!

  11. I’m chiming in late here, but just wanted to say the photograph is beautiful, and how wonderful it is that you have celebrated 40 happy years together. Congratulations!

      I’ve become something of a late chimer-inner myself of late, and thank your for sharing some of your time–and your congratulations–with me. I’ve been out of the fast-lane loop for a couple of weeks and it’s great to hear from you again!.
