Default That's a long time.........

to be alive, let alone married. Had a request last week end at the local Art Fair for an anniversary book with the words changed a little bit. But the party was coming pretty quick. Of course I can!! I'm a sucker for these types of things. But it was prepaid. lol This was taken as the last coat of poly was drying ....... then off to the Pony Express. Cut from a butcher block countertop, left natural and 3 heavy coats of poly.

I wasn't quite 4 years old on that date.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Very nice job John. I may place an order myself.
I was 10 at the time. I can still remember my parents coming home that new years eve with hats and blowy things for a party they attended.
They always brought all that stuff home to us 5 kids.

Man you have that thing dialed in. I can't say I've seen one of those before and it does look like a book for sure. I have a feeling you may get many more requests......

Another well done project, John, and a wonderful milestone marker. Like David, I was only 10 when they got married. Somewhat mind-boggling. Our anniversary tomorrow is on 43 years, so we have some serious catching up to do. I don't think we'll make it.

Great job John. That was a month after I signed on the dotted line joining the USCG. Going on our 62nd anniversary.
