If you stop in last Mondayyou saw a picture from the way back machine, well here's another. Though this one isn't as far back. This is our Wedding Picture from the local paper. We purchased our 10 speed bikes as wedding presents for each other. Bikes were so popular at the time (41 years ago the 17th of this month), there were waiting lists at stores to get a Schwinn 10 speed. We found ours in a old style bike shop out of town, Delaware, Ohio.
We had the funniest idea that people would be coming to visit the day of our wedding. We had a large box of donuts at my apartment for just that reason. No idea why we thought that. We weren't busy, things being so different then what people now do with their big weddings. We went for a bike ride early in the day, he went home to get ready and I got ready by myself at my apartment. I didn't have someone do my make up or my hair...it was all very normal, very relaxed. My Dad came to pick me up at an appointed time and we drove to Whetstone Park of Roses for the ceremony.
The ceremony was short, casual and outside. The weather was perfect! We still have those bikes, though it's been years since we've ridden them. I now have an old cruiser I ride around the neighborhood; we no longer go on true bike rides/hikes of distance. I bring this memory up because our 41st anniversary is a week from today. Lots of memories in those 41 years together.
Join me for Memory Monday, post a picture and tell us the story. I'll get a badge made later, but for now...sing the linky and let's get started. Be sure and visit others on the list and leave comments, so they know you were there. It will make the dreaded Monday much more pleasant.
