I saw my first Robin!

Yesterday evening around 7 pm Lori & I saw our first Robin of the year. He was sitting on the electrical lines in the alley behind our house and he was singing a song for all those you wanted to listen. Our neighborhood is filled with kids and cars and dogs and they always seem to be making some kind of noise but as Lori and I were listening to the Robin sing there wasn't any noise. No cars, no kids, no dogs barking. I felt for a few minutes like we were living in the country. It was beautiful! God is GOOD!

Our 28th Anniversary!

Today is our 28th Anniversary! March 13, 1979 to March 13, 2007.

This is Paul and me on our 25th Anniversary in 2005. We said our vows again and Paul surprised me by renting a limosine to take us to the church.

This was taken on March 13, 1979 our wedding day. We were married at the local court house and had just a small party with family.

The Answers!

Here are the answers to the quiz below!

Room 1 - Dress 1
Room 2 - Dress 3
Room 3 - Dress 4
Room 4 - Dress 2
Room 5 - Dress 5

Dress 1. Three boys & a dog. If you're surrounded by a lively family, here's your dressed-up daytime-to-evening dress. Formal as you like, it's still made in good tough wool that won't straightway show the print of a grubby finger or a muddy paw.

Dress 2. City Skyline. If you have an apartment in the city, you've probably long since discovered that a long-skirted dress is the prettiest most comfortable thing you can wear at home of an evening. Curl up on the sofa and tuck away your feet!

Dress 3. Country weekend. After you've run around in ski pants or slacks all day maybe you'd like to change for dinner into this bright warm plaid. It's a good dress to wear to a neighborhood party too.

Dress 4. Collector's room. If you're a collector at heart and have a room full of lovely things you've brought from here and there, you'll find that the portrait quality of this dress fits completely into your setting.

Dress 5. Modern setting. Modern living often goes at a stepped-up pace. Maybe you rush from the office to meet guests you've asked to your house, maybe you have cocktails at home and go out to dinner. So here's a quick-change costume.

Hope everyone enjoyed going back to the 40's. I sure did! Ann
