Happy Anniversary To Us

Hello, happy Thursday, and Happy Anniversary to Allen and me!!! We've been married 26 years today. My sweet Al came home with these gorgeous flowers for our anniversary. Isn't he he best? He even picked out complimentary colors!!! I wasn't expecting anything at all, since we just had to spend lots of money on both car and truck repairs, so this was a BIG surprise! He is good at surprises, and I'm so grateful for the sweet wonderful man that he is. He is one of the biggest blessings in my life, and I can't wait to see what the next 26 years bring. With Al, you just never know!! :-D



Below is a closer picture of my pretty flowers. These beauties always last so long, so I know I will get to enjoy them for a while.
On another happy note, I'm all hooked up to internet at Granny's house, so I won't feel so cut off from the rest of the world! How on earth did we ever survive before email and internet?? I'm looking forward to catching up on all my favorite blogs, and threads.
Granny has had her bath, and I've got her all tuned in to some George Jones CDs. It's the best way I've found yet to get her to exercise her feet. One of her PT exercises is to bend her feet up and down at the ankle to help her body get rid of the fluid in her ankles. She struggles with it sometimes, but yesterday when she was listening to her music, I noticed that she was tapping both feet right along with the beat. Isn't that funny? With the Parkinson's Disease, she has to really concentrate to make her muscles do what she wants, but with the music going, she just does it! Once again she amazes me! I hope you have a beautiful day, and thanks for stopping by!
Love ya!
Lorie

Hi, Lori and congratulations on your wedding anniversary and may you have many more! The flowers are gorgeous! It is so good of you to be with your grandparents and I'm sure they love having you there. Your pictures of the farm and the stories bring back my own memories of growing up in Iowa. Nothin' like it!

Happy A-Day to you and Al! The flowers are just gorgeous!

LOL on the internet dependency! When BFF and I were visiting our college campus, I noted that all the kids have cell phones now. Just 11 years ago, none of our friends had cell phones! Geesh! How time and technolgy fly! LOL!
Glad you are hooked up and we can KIT!
