An' it don't seem a day too much

We've been together now for forty years,
An' it don't seem a day too much,
There ain't a lady livin' in the land
As I'd swop for my dear old Dutch. 
- Albert Chevalier (1893)


At this tender age, neither Martin or Mags had the faintest idea
that they would meet later in life, marry, become parents to a
beautiful daughter, see their daughter married to a good man, 
be blessed with three darling granddaughters, and celebrate their
Ruby Wedding Anniversary!

Tied the knot 2nd March, 1974,
and it's as good now as it ever was .

    2. 1974? You must be ancient! (As am I.) Congratulations, Martin and Mags. Does it see like 40 years ago - or only yesterday?

  2. Happy Anniversary, Martin, to you and Mrs Martin. 40 years is a good time, at least you know what to expect and it can only get better from now on. :)

    Love to both of you.

  11. Love the pics! Congratulations! You and your wife are about nine years behind my husband and I. We'll be celebrating 49 shortly, and the children have been put on notice that we expect a party for our 50th!
