Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Sorry this post is a little late, we were in a rush to get out on the road this morning, trying to beat the snow. Today I thought I'd share old pics of long-lasting couples from my own family. My parents are pictured below, they were in their early 20's. Weren't they adorable? They met on a blind date when my Dad was in the military, and have been together for 39 years.
My paternal grandparents "Fox" and "Y.B." My grandfather's hair turned gray at an early age, so he earned the nickname "Silver Fox" and my grandmother was his "Young Bride". Grandpa Fox and Grandma YB are still with us, about to turn 90 and 91.
My maternal grandparents, "Nonnie" and "Mindan". I've no idea where the nicknames came from, but they are unique. They had 8 kids, and according to my Mom, Nonnie used to say "Every time your Daddy walked through the front door I got pregnant."
I hope you are all having a fantastic Valentines Day, or un-Valentines Day. We just returned from a hike on the Cumberland Plateau and an early dinner out, soon to be followed by a game of Scrabble, some Olympics, and a horror movie (good for snuggling). Not most people's idea of an ideal Valentines Day, but for us it's just right. Although spending the day on a tropical island would probably have been even better...
