Then and Now!

I met Jim when I was 8 and he was 9 years old.  My family had just moved into a new house.  I was sitting outside in my back yard near my neighbor's yard.  Suddenly two boys walked over to me and one of them said, "Get off Phil's property!"  Phil was the neighbor and we were to later find out there was a property line dispute.  All I knew was that a little boy yelled at me and I ran into the house crying to my mom. 

Little did I know that this boy
 would one day become my husband!!

 Today we celebrate 42
wonderful years of marriage!
