Great story, Vera. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like you and your family had a great weekend.

Vera...that was so funny..reminded me of "Everybody loves Raymond" on TV.

I see Jacksonville hasn't changed much since 1959-1963 ! LOL

Thanks VeraBlue. Your parents sound exactly mine.

Which anniversary changes bickering from hostility to affection? It happened to my parents sometime after I left the nest.

That's a hard one to answer. I believe each situation is different. My (ex)husband and I, though seperated, still remember our anniversary.

I do have concern, regarding my parents, now. I cannot imagine one without the other and fear for them both. I believe one would be lost without the other.

Great recap of your trip, Vera. If the exec chef thing doesn't pan out, I see another career awaiting. You must be part Irish, with that gift of gab.

LOL, Vera - shoulda known you'd be a redhead, you rascal.............

But there's something to be said for the Black Irish as well.
