Here's a picture of us after Ron and his best buddy had just installed new backsplash (believe it or not, it's beautiful plastic) in my kitchen in the summer of '09!

(Only appropriate I would share a kitchen shot, don't you think? =)


My love of creating in the kitchen has surely added to our waistlines after 43 years!

As I placed in the dedication of my cookbook to him...he always eats anything I fix for him...what a guy!


A humorous story from our whirlwind wedding weekend...

Ron had just returned from his 3rd tour (2 voluntary) of Vietnam in February 1968. We had been engaged for about 9 months. (We began dating two weeks before he graduated from high school.  I was a sophomore).

A week before he was heading to South Carolina to go through USMC Drill Instructor school...we decided to get married.  We planned our wedding in 3 days! We had 150 guests at our ceremony!

Because of the short notice, we kinda figured we'd get fewer gifts and more $$.

When we walked into the reception room, there were two long tables piled high with gifts.

We received $7 in cash on our wedding day!
(Yes, someone put $2 in a card for us!=)

We still chuckle over that one.

Don't get me wrong - we were thankful...just surprised!
