44 Years, But Who's Counting (1,2,3,....)

It's true. 44 years ago, Omer and I began on this strange adventure.

wedding day

One of our favorite jokes has always been from a greeting card I found long ago. "We may never make Who's Who, but we were on page 47 of What Was That?

I think that worked out well.

Let's see, what would the above picture look like if we were to do it all over again? I think I can show you, pretty close at least.

Yes, that's really us. Look closer.

Sharkey, that is a hoot! I LOVE the old photo...and the new! Speaks volumes of those 44 years together.

Happy Anniversary and congratulations on all those years together. I wish you many, many more. :)

Happy Anniversary! Love the photos! That second one is so fun! Wishing you many more years together!

You two looked amazing back then...44 years is quite an accomplishment in a world where some marriages don't even last 44 minutes. I think having a sense of humor is one of the essentials for a marriage!

Love the second photo, too.

All the best to you and Omer for many happy years to come, Joan.

Happy Anniversary, and many, many more. My hubby says the secret to a long-lasting marriage lies in two little words: "Yes, dear." (Whether ya mean 'em or not!)

Congrats to both of you.
We love the photos old and new.
Here hoping that you have many more,
With that Special Someone you adore.

I'd rather be in What's That? than in Who's Who.
