WESTBROOK, Minnesota (STPNS) -- Special day for me and Best Friend . . .

    This has been a special year for us (Best Friend and I) Last September we celebrated 50 years of working together in the printing and publishing industry, and more recently we celebrated 50 years of marriage. A lot of people we have talked with recently have commented how it is a special thing to reach the 50 year milestone of marriage. But most thought it was a bigger deal to work at the same job place for those 50 years.

    When  I have been asked how we were able to do that, I told them one of the things you have to try and do is leave your work at work, and leave your home at home. Of course like most married couples we have had disagreements both at work and at home. Fortunately a lot of things that upset us the most were things that came from outside the boundaries of our marriage, and more from job related issues.

    But all in all  it has been a great ride we have had on this bus we call earth, and we hope to continue it for as many more years as the good Lord allows us.

    It was great to see all the wonderful folks who attended our Open House . Having all of our children, spouses and grand/great grandchildren there really made the day extra special. The three hours of our open house just went by so fast, we would like to have spent more time visiting with all those who came. It was nice to be able to spend some time with those we see less often.

    Again, June and I wish to thank those who remembered us in any way on our celebration of 50 years of marriage.


Have a great week and do good!
