The 50th

August 22 was the 50th anniversary of my in-laws wedding.

We took them to dinner on Saturday, August 24.

That's my brother-in-law Gary standing with my mother-in-law Eunice. The young man sitting is my nephew Chris.

I knew I wanted to take a picture to put in the newspaper so I asked the guests of honor for a pose. That's Jimmy and Eunice.

That's my husband standing, my sister-in-law Jennifer in the back, and my nephew Emory sitting. We were waiting on our table in the main dining room.

I imagine by the menu you can tell where we went. I had shrimp if you need a hint.

We had originally planned a big party. The invitations were set to go out on July 15. They were in the envelopes and the stamps were next. And then on July 13 my mother-in-law broke her hip.

My husband and his sister canceled the party because they didn't know how well Eunice was going to get along. It probably would have been a stressful weekend for her.

Anyway, Happy Anniversary to Jimmy and Eunice.


  1. Congratulations to your in-laws - 50 years? Wow.

  2. It's so nice to see a couple that's celebrating 50 years. Congratulations to your in-laws! And what a nice family, too.

  3. Oh wow! Congratulations - I love hearing about love stories that last so long. What a blessing!
