This is our beautiful cake.


This is the longest I have gone without posting but have a couple of good reasons. One I had the cataracts removed from both eyes, one 2 weeks ago and the other yesterday. In between I was getting ready for company and celebrating our 50th. wedding anniversery.

We were married 50 years ago Aug. 15, 1959 in Toronto at The Church of St. Davids, Anglican church. We had a small wedding just ourselves and the maid of honor and bestman plus one usher. We have had a wonderful life and I now wonder where did the time go. Most of our Canadian family came down and we had people in all our homes plus put some up at a local motel. Friday night my son had a dinner for all the relatives then the actual party was held at my daughter's home. I owe a big Thank You to my 3 great kids.

I am going to post just a few pics and hope this does not bore you all. I am in the final stages of my pink wallhanging so will be able to show that in the next few days.

I really need a course in blogging. I don't know how to do the pictures individually and write under them so I will just have to go ahead and show them. The first 2 are of Harv. and I. The third is of us and our 3 children. The fourth is our children and their spouses. The last picture is Harv and I, my Maid of Honour and by BIL Bill who was our usher. Our Best Man passed away a few years ago. Well I obviously pu this one in twice so just ignor the first one. Didn't I say I need help. Is there a Dummies book for bloggers?

Dearest Freda, What a beautiful gift to make it 50 years of marriage...your eyes are just lovely but I'm not sure it was all the cataract surgery. I loved seeing all the pics of your family and your back yard is resplendent. Congratulations on 50 years well spent.

Dear Freda, Happy (belated) 50th Anniversary - and here's hoping you have many, many more years together. What a wonderful milestone you two have reached! So glad your eye surgeries went well AND that they're done! Your home and yard are picture perfect. Big hugs, Cathy

Freda, happy belated 50th anniversary. How wonderful! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your kind words.

As for being able to write avobe or under each photo:

1. Upload the photos,
2. Click on the 'edit html' tab and add your text either before the < followed by an a.... or after the < followed by /a.... code.
3. Then simply hit the 'enter' button to add spaces/spacing between them.
4. Go to the 'preview' link and see what it looks like.

Good luck and take care.

Freda, I'm so sorry I haven't visited for a while - belated Happy Anniversary! Looks like you had a wonderful celebration, and to have your eyes corrected really is the icing on the proverbial cake :-)
