YIKES! My Parents Have Been Married 60 Years!
Although their actual anniversary was yesterday, today they are taking the entire family to The Barn in Burbank, IL, for dinner. Even niece Jen is flying in from NYC. And this is their treat. What a far cry from childhood days when we'd go to a restaurant after church and get a limit on what we could order ($.99 was the limit for many years, excluding the drink). They have also listed their house and are preparing for a move into an Active Senior community. Hard to imagine 60 years of marriage... Here they are in Springfield, looking at Dad's brick in the World War II Memorial.
