50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY, GOLDEN.



Today, Tom and I have been married for 50 years.  I suppose its a bit of an achievement when you consider how many people are getting divorced these days.
It's not been an easy 50 years.  Tom has had a lot of illness and we've been very hard up for a lot of it but we have always laughed a lot and when we look back it's been good.
In case you're wondering about the names, Briony is my blog name.


Who would have thought when this picture was taken on a snowy cold day in 1964 that we would still be together.


But here we are, both got glasses and a lot more lines but still laughing


Who did it ?????
Mummy Polly wanted to jump from the piano up on to the top of the wardrobes and knocked the stool over  in the process causing all of the others to scoot and hide.
Normal happenings in our household. lol

  13. The cat scramble and resulting cascade of objects is apt to happen at 2 A.M. in this household.
    I don't suppose marriage is ever really easy--and we've no idea what we're in for on that happy day.
    50 years for us also in June 2013.
    You are still a handsome pair!
