40 anniversary surprise

Hondo Member Posts: 6,636 Member

My children and I all planned a surprise for my Wife on our 40th anniversary. I told the Wife I wanted to spend our anniversary up on Toledo Bend just me and her. Well I could see that she did not really like the idea but she went along with it. We were down on the pear fishing when her brother and his wife just walked up and she could not believe her eyes. Then a little while later all the Children and grandchildren started showing up so she had a great time. Then all too soon it was over and we all went our separate ways. I always knew I was blessed to have a Woman, Fiend, Caretaker, Cook, Part-time Doctor, Cleaner, Sower, Washer, companion by my side for the last 40 years.
