The view from my perch on the mountain

Time After Time

Way, way back in the latter part of the last century I was a wild child, confirmed bachelor and hard core party animal burning the candle at both ends ……… with a blow torch.

October 6. 1986 was the occasion of my my youngest brother’s annual birthday pig pickin’, all day and all night keg party and gathering of the heathens. Naturally I showed up ready to rock. When I walked in the door the first thing I saw was a hot little blonde sitting at the kitchen table. Something just clicked between the two of us and we’ve been together ever since!

Since that fateful night we’ve been through a lot of good times and some very bad times but I wouldn’t change a thing. She is my soul mate and the love of my life!

Today Frankie (aka THE BOSS) and I celebrate our 150th 23rd wedding anniversary. Finding photos of the two of us together is tough because I’m usually behind the camera and she’s normally camera shy but I think these two will fit the bill.


Summer 1987 on the Yorktown Battlefield, Virginia. Good Lord were we ever young!


May 2010 Gorge Wythe High School – Wytheville, Virginia – Laura’s high school graduation. Laura is our pride and joy.

When we first met everyone said it would never last. HAH! Fat lot they knew.

  7. I burned my candle at both ends, it did not last the night, but oh my foes and oh my friends it gave a lovely light. A slight adaptation for you Chip, but it did last the night, fortunately, How like her Mum Laura is when she first met you.
    Many congratulations and here’s to the next 23.
