Happy 50th Anniversary Mom and Dad!
It was fifty years ago today, January 28, 1961, that my parents Lloyd and Lorraine (nee Skibbe) Clark married. How wonderful to see a marriage last. My father has a tendency to make up silly songs, one such song he sings as he picks up the dog poop (full out when I was a child, the neighbors used to slam their windows shut) but doesn't talk too much ; Mom can cook zucchini 150 different ways and loves to talk - on the phone or in person. Some how the two of them combined their quirkiness to create a workable marriage.
PS - Did I mention Gary married me knowing that I sing silly songs especially to my animals and I talk to much? Hopefully we will find each other just as unique as my parents have found each other, love you honey!
