50th Anniversary Was Certainly Golden

Henny Youngman once said, “Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesday. I go Fridays.”

Just kidding!

Now I know why they call the 50th Wedding Anniversary Golden. Our celebration was simply that. Ginger and I can’t Thank You enough for attending our celebrations. The many cards were overwhelming. The gifts were not necessary, but appreciated. The emails blew my mind, and the photographs were fantastic. (Thanks Don)

Kelly, daughter number one, put many of the pictures on facebook and the response keeps coming and coming from all over the States. We even received congratulations from the honeymoon couple we met on our cruise before the party.

Ginger stated more than once, of all the memories we’ve shared with friends, coworkers, relatives, and most of all family.

Someone commented on the pictures that were place on the tables, and decided that we have been to every graduation since the family started.
There are some things you just can’t miss.

My three children and all their families did outstanding jobs making this Anniversary one we will never forget. The Hayner Cultural Center was the ideal place to welcome our guest. The food was out of this world. And the best part, was 100 percent attendance of the Godfrey bunch.

If you want to get Ginger all teary eyed, just have everyone show up all at one time. It was awesome!

I didn’t realize that two hours went so fast, in fact Ginger and I were still talking to guest, while the entire pack all chipped in and cleaned, washed and loaded the vehicles. When we finally said goodbye to the last guest, the work was finished. The honored couple were dismissed with tired feet, slight fatigue, and a thousand more memories to store away forever. It will be almost impossible, to thank everyone who took part in our wonderful Anniversary. There were many who congratulated us, and told us why they couldn’t make it. We want you all to know, we understand. We often have the same problems.

This week’s bottom line: Why does a woman work ten or more years to change a man’s habits and then complain that he’s not the man she married?
