Happy 65th Birthday, my Prospector.

July 1967
Vacation on Russian River
The Prospector and I
He was 23 and I was 22.
(We had been married for 2 years and 1 month)

Happy Birthday to the love of my life. You worked so hard all your life and now you can enjoy everything you have today. Be proud of the things that make you who you are. I am. I love the sureness and determination you show in everything you do. I love the way you can be so sensitive about others and how you carry your heart on your sleeve. I love that you cry watching sad movies and the way you hold Carl and talk to him.

We have had a good life together. We raised two boys and they are something to be proud of. We have two cute grandkids. I hope that you can look at these 65 years and all the places you have lived, the things you have done..., and say "It's been a good ride." I wish you love, happiness and good health. .., and more life together. Look at you, you're still a handsome dude.

With love forever, your adoring wife.

What a lovely, lovely post! I was using the tissues by the end of it and as I read it to my Old Guy, he was doin' a bit of sniffing himself.

Happy Birthday to the handsome dude!

Happy birthday, Prospecter.

I'd say your woman really loves you from what I read on this post. It was quite a nice expression of how she feels about you and she was not afraid to tell it to the world.

I love your gentleness when you hold Carl... and anybody that is that sweet with a pup is bound to be gentle and loving with his wife.

I hope you have many more birthdays to come.


Word Verification is 'sweedie'... how appropriate.
