Today is our Silver Anniversary.
We met in an automotive garage, we chatted on a CB radio.
Meet Horrible and Cherokee Rose ( our CB handles in 1984) chatting turned to dating and dating to marriage and here we are Married a Quarter of a Century
This photo was taken in December 1984 a few weeks before we were married on Feb 08, 1985.
Side by side – Year by year
We Blinked and 25 years gone!
A marriage anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.

PS....no one should mention I don't look like I did in this picture.
The difficulty with married life is that we fall in love with a personality, but must live with a character
1985 our back yard puppy farm we inherited from a neighbor, 5 sets of idential twins, one litter. Max is the one we kept.
In our case make that 2 human Characters who love humor and 4 canine characters over 25 years, we now have only 2 Canine Characters.
Feb 8, 1985, we were married in the courthouse so no wedding photos to post here. Second marriage, grown children and a new and wonderful life together. Just the 2 of us. NOT. we both love animals, especially dogs. the year we married we found Max next door.
Max and his daddy Bob, Max was with us for the first 15 years, he did everything with daddy. We do not tell Jake and Baby, Max was daddies favorite character, including mommy.
When Max died in 2002 we added Baby Girl and Cooper, then in 2005 we added Jake.
Our celebration today of 25 years does and always will include the two of us and our wonderful four paw children.
I close with a few comments on marriage from the internet well.

It calls for a celebration when a couple has been together for a quarter of a century and their relationship has survived the battles of this disparaging world Anonymous

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
