Still laughing after 50 years

Aunt Joanne & Uncle Al
Originally uploaded by sfarewell.

These two people were our big excuse to visit California. Aunt Joanne & Uncle Al celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this month. Now as the romantic story goes, they met when Al was a senior and Joanne was a sophomore in high school. Al was also the part-time school bus driver and had his pick of the cute girls on that bus but it was Joanne who he picked. They wanted to get married soon after that but my Granddad put his foot down and said Joanne couldn't get married until after she graduated high school. Her graduation ceremony was at 8 pm and wedding ceremony at 11:30 pm that same night. It must have worked because they are still smiling as they begin their 2nd 50 years together.
