Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

I said "I do" 36 years ago

Yes 36 years ago I said I do, and I would do it again.  Boy was I thin!  I made my dess out of eyelet fabric, all cotton. On our wedding day the temps where in the 90 with a full Catholic mass.  My dress was nice and cool.  The pearls that I'm wearing belonged to my Grandmother Addison.  Later on we had everyone over at my mom and dads for good food, fun and a lot of laughs. So many that enjoyed our day are gone from earth but not in our hearts.  I think we might make it to 50!  Then we can have another party!

Congrats! We hit 46 this year. We may have a party too. I was thin on my day too. If I was that thin today, everyone would think I am sick. I like to be thinner, but not enough to do anything about it.
