Happy Anniversary!


See anyone you know? Yep, that’s Terry and I on our wedding day. . . August 28, 1971, 37 years ago. We got married in Goshen, Indiana, on a beautiful August day. I had just graduated from Ball State and started my teaching career in Muncie. Terry had another year left of undergraduate school, then got his Masters the next year. He taught for four years with me and I finished up my Masters the following year.

We didn’t start adding to our family for five years, but we were camping in a tent! After Jocelyn was born, we graduated to a small trailer. Then we upgraded again when Brandon came along . . . typical tale of RV’ers, eh?

It was natural for us to continue RVing while the kids were growing up. We added boating to the mix and combined the two for many special weekends and vacations.

Now we fulltime in Phaeton Place and keep our boats at the lake in case we pass through. . . we drop them in the water and off we go. . .

It’s been a great ride so far, but we have just started.

Life is good. . .

Till next time. . .
