A belated Happy 59th Anniversary

I tried to post this yesterday, but Blogger wasn't cooperating with allowing me to upload pictures.

Any way, with all the running I have been doing from my home in NJ to my parent's home in PA, I forgot to post 59th anniversary wished to my parents on October 7th. Here's the happy couple en route from Haines to Skagway Alaska on the ferry boat.

I think they're a pretty darn good looking couple for being 87 and 80.

My mom is doing much better. She's venturing up the steps daily and taking short walks when the weather permits. And she's doing little things around the house like setting the table and doing dishes. She's not allowed to do anything that would put a strain on her back so walking is her best form of rehab and exercise right now. My dad has been a real trooper cooking, doing laundry and anything else that needs to be done. I go to visit at least once a week to give him a break and do some things he doesn't do like ironing.

Happy Anniversary to those handsome looking parents....they are just too cute....what a god daughter to go once a week tohelp out and glad to hear Mom is one the mend.....I am making something for you and will need to know where to mail it....e-mail me where you would like it sent if you don't mind and I'll try to get it mailed out next week...I still have some tweaking to do on it.

Happy Anniversary! How exciting it is that they are together, happy and healthy. Glad that Mom is better.

I think you should start a career ironing! I would happily be yoru first customer.

Isn't it wonderful? My parents are celebrating 61 years this December.
Here's to more happy healthy years together for both of those fortunate couples!
