It Was A Good Day

My oldest Brother and his Wife, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary yesterday. They are going to a week long retreat with their family in a few days to celebrate. So this was our chance to take them to lunch. The couple are Marty's folks. They just moved back to the home town and are proving to be a 'wonderful addition' to our little community. The conversation usually goes like this. "Cliff, I met your Brother and his Wife, we are lucky to have them in town". They are the type of people who are quickly getting everybody's family tree figured out. Not a prerequisite for living in a small town, but it is recommended.
We took them to an Omaha restaurant where we met another brother and my boys and family from Lincoln.
We went shopping and got home for the finale'. 1.1 INCHES OF RAIN. I've got a busy week ahead, but the rain made it much easier to get up. And one more thing, THE SWEET CORN IS READY!

Sounds like yesterday was a good day. Wish we could have been there. Tell them HAPPY ANNIVERSARY for us. Glad you got the rain. Hope it was slow drizzle type and not the downpour style.
Now, about that sweet corn . . . .

Glad to hear about anyone celebrating 50 years together! Lasting marriages are fewer these days.

I love corn on the cob. I munch it down and then need to floss afterwards. Yum, yum, yum.

I'm happy it rained.

In two weeks I'm going to write the same first sentence you wrote. I can't believe I remember the wedding.

And I saw the rain you got--on last night's weather report.
