Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary

The Herd would like to pause and wish our hu-grandparents (our cousin Tartok’s mom and dad) a Very Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary.  What a spectacular couple they are:


And here, in a very special picture, is our hu-great-granddad (whom we never met, but our hu-dad remembers fondly) escorting our hu-grandmother down the aisle:


An anniversary party has been arranged this afternoon in the Town Pavilion (yes, we live in a small enough town where there is “the Town Pavilion”) with a big spread of food, relatives, friends … huh?  Wait?  The Herd is not invited.  We can not imagine any event where The Herd would not add a little spice.

Ok, ok – Our humans will be going and we will be snoozing at the house.  Despite that horrific revelation, we want to wish our hu-grandparents a spectacular 50th anniversary.

P.S. – Some ONE better bring us some leftover food!

    Happy Anniversary to your grandparents! I do agree with you that you should have been invited, but maybe they were afraid that Rusty would get into the cake like Steve in the Frosting Incident of 2007!

    Oh, I LOVE those pictures! Much, much, much happiness to your hu-grandparents!

    Isn’t this also known as the Golden Wedding Anniversary?

    Congrats to your grandparents, Herd!

    Here are a few lines from Ogden Nash:

    To keep your marriage brimming,
    With love in the wedding cup,
    Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
    Whenever you’re right, shut up.
    – Ogden Nash

    Happy anniversary to your grandparents! That’s a good effort. Mine made it to 40 years last Christmas.

    I’m sorry you won’t be going to the party. You know they’ll all be bored without you.
