Happy 40th

Yesterday was our mom and dad's 40th wedding anniversary.  Gosh, they were just kids then!
Here they are getting ready to head to New Orleans for their honeymoon.
You sure had wirey hair then, dad!

Dad made his famous tomato sauce for their special day and we got to help him. Uncle Bill wanted to make sauce too so we all made sauce together.
 Mom loves when dad makes sauce in his workshop.  It's a day off for her and dad's sauce is fabulous!   The only thing that mom doesn't like about it is the workshop smells heavenly instead of all of those wonderful smells being inside the house!

The pot of sauce finally made it inside. yummmm

 We wanted to share this picture with you too.  This was taken in the summer of 2003, almost 10 years  ago.  Mom and dad and angel Maggie were on Nantucket. They were staying with their good friends, Mike and Lauren and Charley, the yellow Lab.    We just love this picture!
Happy Anniversary, mom and dad!
Thanks for sharing dindin with us!  We sure do love onies!

So until next time.........

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Happy Anniversary to your Mom and Dad! That sauce looks great! My mom is curious why it has to be made in the shop instead of the kitchen? Does your daddy add some secret ingredients like saw dust or something? Inquiring minds want to know.

Off-topic, but we saw 2 Airdales at the pet store getting dog washes while I was getting one too just this weekend! We immediately thought of you guys!
Those poor guys took as long to dry as it took my whole bath and toweling off! Granted, I was also about 1/3 of their size... :)
