On Saturday afternoon we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary

First thing in the morning I got this beautiful rose bouquet from Mr. G.

I wanted to invite our friends who are still married and found only one couple ! All the others are divorced since ages or after 35 years of marriage ! So we invited Mr. G's friend and ancient colleague with his wife. He is Belgian and she is German and they are married since 53 years !

Apparently we are the kind of species who are dying out ! 

They brought us this beautiful bouquet.

With first coffee and cake we celebrated and talked about old times and what we had all done together as young married couples ! We had a lot of fun.

After the coffee late afternoon, we had a bottle of Champagne and continued our memories. It was a real nice afternoon.

The day ended with a Sushi meal, which is our favorite plate for special occasions. Cat Arthur was very interested and Mr. G had to share his Sushis with him and Pookie. Fortunately there were enough !

On Sunday Nicole came with Charlie, and we did a little walk with him here around

And then had a coffee. Mr. G had been on the market and had brought a bone for Charlie
was he happy ! He ate it all in no time and even leaked the crumbs from the floor !

Then he collapsed happily, while we continued our chats.

Well it wouldn't be a celebration without Charlie and the 4 cats.
Will you receive a telegram from the Belgian King and Queen when you have been married 60 years?

Such a lovely reunion with only one other couple from a dying species! In SA couples last 25 years only - just enough for the children to be educated and leave home. I love Charlie to bits. And of course, Arthur does exactly what Shadow would do: Sit almost on the plate. Great post of a lovely weekend. Jo

That bouquet of red roses is a very romantic gesture and don't they look delightful. What a wonderful way to spend your day.

Lovely way to spend a special day.

Every three years, the RV resort where we spend winters hosts a special dinner for couples who have been married 50 years or longer. (We have been twice already.) And last year there were over 30 couples there! (One of my friends wondered if she could attend because when you added both her marriages together they came to 50 years;>))

Happy anniversary and wishing you many more.

You would think if you could put up with each other for thirty five years, you may as well stay together. But sometimes circumstances and what people want cannot be accommodated. The roses are a very nice colour and I am pleased the day went well.

Romantic Mr G's red roses look so gorgeous!

I am celebrating my 24th wedding anniversary. Should have been on your invitation list. LOL
