Beverly’s Birthday Today

My Wife’s Birthday

To my wonderful and loving wife, I wish her a Happy Birthday.

We were married in 1961, that’s 48 years as of June 8, 2009. We’ve been through just about everything. I love her more today than I ever did. Some things just get more precious with age.


Here we are still together after 48 years.

Happy Birthday Beverly!

I love you!


Look what Beverly just received just before noon today. A beautiful vase of cut flowers for her birthday. They were from Sylvia, Mandy and Alex who live in Lebanon, TN.

They are really nice in a beautiful rectangular vase made of thick green glass. She thanks you very much!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Life is a wonderful gift. A gift so precious, just to live a life on this earth. How much more precious is the gift of eternal life? Some things are unknowable and immeasurable.

Quote of the Day
A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein

Joke of the Day

An efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution. "You don't want to try these techniques at home."

"Why not?" asked someone in the audience.

"I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained. "She made lots of trips to the refrigerator, stove and table, often carrying just a single item. So I suggested, 'Honey, why don't you try carrying several things at once?'"

Another person asked, "Did it save time?"

The expert replied, "Actually, it did. It used to take her twenty minutes to get breakfast ready...and now I do it in about ten."

Happy birthday to Beverly!

Just wanted to finally leave a comment, Jim, and tell you what a great journal I think you have. I love the jokes and the informative stories, and I especially love the history, like the pictures of FDR with your dad in the audience somewhere. That was really something.

Hope you've been feeling back to your old self again and that things are going well for you and yours.
