    Look what happened 53 years ago today – they said it wouldn’t last and there were a few times in the early years when it could quite easily not have done but were we going to give them the benefit of saying “I told you so!” Not on your Nellie! So with a bit of determination and a lot of love we survived!

    Congratulations and well done.
    I proposed to a girlfriend many years ago, and she said she had no intention of making one bloke miserable when she could make so many happy……..

    Thank you Cheeki yes to all of the above, especially the laughs – had lots and lots of those and I reckon they’re as important as all the other things  :yes:

    Fruity, I’m going to have a bit of flutter. I think you had literally just turned 20 when that photo was taken? ;-)

    What a great 19th birthday present, not many presents these days, or in those days either, last so long. Felicitations etc pour les 53 ans, les noces de merisier (cherrywood).

    Love it Stinky! Where do you find all these clips?

    I know Bill we both said that it’s more than a sentence!

    Well this day 53 years ago we went up to London by train (no car in those days) wandered round the Ideal Home exhibition, sampling anything that was cooked in a demonstration (it was our lunch) went to a show, then back home and back to work the next day –  it was our honeymoon and we had a lovely time. Mr. F was a butcher and the owner of the shop very generously allowed him to work only until 12 noon on the day we married – the wedding was at 3pm! (My sarcastic wit coming to the fore!)

    Happy Days!
