May Flowers Bring...

Daisy Do

...an Anniversary!
31 years today!
Jackie and I have been married for 31 whole years
and have known each other for 35!

As most of you know, Jackie had been gone helping in north Alabama to restore electrical power to the tornado victims.  His company has had crews working since April 27, the day the tornados ripped through the north section of our state leaving miles and miles of devastation.  After 10 days of working 5-9 each day (that's backwards) he is finally home, being replaced by another crew.
After seeing him for 2 days...I left to go to New Orleans to help Holly and Richard with their packing for their BIG move to Jacksonville, FL.  I guess we'll get to see each other one day! 
He did call me this morning at 6:00 to wish me a Happy Anniversary!

Holly and I have been a little lazy due to lack of sleep...so we are slow in the packing department!
We went thrifting yesterday...no major finds except some good books and an old PassWord game complete in the original box with all the pieces, dated 1963, for 95 whole cents! 
Too cute!  Do you remember playing PassWord?
We then went to TGI Fridays to get a bite to eat and the Parmesan-Crusted Crab topped Flounder was to die for....it was delicious with jasmine rice pilaf and steamed green beans on the side!
Yep...I recommend this dish for sure!
We are going back out today to hit the other thrift stores...
the packing will just have to wait a while because the fun comes first!

I hope your week is fun too!
Take care and I will visit with you all soon!

Well Happy Anniversary my friend. You all will just party it up when you get to see each other. LOL! Sounds like a busy time right now but when it slows down enjoy it cause it doesn't last long does it?
My mouth is watering from the sound of that dish. YUM!
Have a beautiful day!

Happy Anniversary! I am sure you will find a way to celebrate when you finally meet up again, take each other out for a special dinner! I would love to see what else you got while out thrifting. I do remember playing that game with my cousins when we were young, trying to pass the time during vacations at Nana's!

Hello Cora~ I've got a favor to ask...I would like to invite you over for a visit to see a very special post I've written. I would love it if you could take a few moments to stop by.

Happy Anniversary!

Again, Happy Anniversary! Being with one person for 35 years is amazing! Now that is commitment and I congratulate you two. Sorry you didn't get to see much of him but that just goes to show what big hearts each of you have to put other's needs ahead of your own and go to help out.

That Password game is awesome! Look at the graphics on that box and it is in amazing condition! What a neat find!

Sounds like you two are having a good time, as always. =]

Kris said...

hoping everything is fine and you are well -- I've been poping in to see what's keeping you -- wishing you the best.. Kristeen

Hi Cora! Sure have missed you gal! Sam and fam moved to their apartment yesterday, and while the craziness has ebbed, I miss them already. They live about 50 minutes away now...in Orlando...and while the drive is do-able, this Mama isn't a fan of city traffic! UGH! I'll head over in a couple of days to see how things are going, though!

Love ya, and hope your week is wonderful!

BECKY said...

Oh I forgot! Happy anniversary! That is soooo cool! We are one year ahead of you! In October it will be 32 for us, and I have known Randy since 5th grade! I had a huge crush on him then but he never knew it, until he asked me to go steady in 8th grade!

May you have many more blessed years together, sweetie!
