Right after the ceremony at the Justice of the Peace in Oakland, CA. Grandma Lawson took the picture - and then they went to dinner. No fancy wedding for them - and Father had to pay for the dinner.
I wonder if they thought it'd last 67 years? I think not... but then again there was a war on, and who knew what the next year would bring? Carpe Diem and all that...
Well, they siezed that day, and many, many more. Over 24,000 of them, in fact.
My lovely bride and I have been married 17 years, over 6200 days. Only 50 years and we'll have caught up to them.
My thanks to you all.
