A friend called Anita this morning and after some usual chit-chat the friend announced that today, November 24th was her birthday. Anita wished her the best and mentioned that coincidentally, today, the 24th, is our anniversary.

The friend offered her congratulations and asked if it was a “milestone,” anniversary year.

Anita replied, “No, I wouldn’t call it a milestone, but I would call it a MIRACLE… I agree!

And after 63 years of marriage, (no, that’s not a typo, six-three is correct, counting from November 24th, 1954 to today) I can safely say, all my young pals were wrong. THEY SAID IT WOULD NEVER LAST. Anita says…there are times she agreed with them. I say…we took a licking but we are still ticking!
