History is always interesting and I see you got Great and Reg's anniversary in there :thumbsupp:

My brother and his wife celebrated their 60th anniversary on the 17th of this month. I'm amazed at folks being able to stay together for such a long time. We tend to give up today as soon as there is a problem ;dntkn
