Today was no ordinary day, it began by attending a barbeque pot luck Fourth of July event at the new Lincoln Senior Center. We had entertaining music too and many friends some new and some we had just met wishing John and me a Happy 42th Wedding Anniversary. 



To the man I love on our Anniversary

There is a hand I love to hold, a face I love to see,

There is a voice I love to hear, that means the world to me.........

There is a tender, loving kiss that warms me through and through,

There is a certain smile that always cheers me when I'm blue........

There is a heart that understands what I am dreaming of......

and all of these belong to you-

the wonderful best friend of 42 years-

YOU - John

I love You

Happy Anniversary

 

It was such a hot day as today, high 90's So hot that I remember a bride passing out from the heat at Slater Park as we waited our turn to walk on the bridge to have pictures taken.  Would you believe our marriege was a bit shaken by finding out as we attended our dinner and reception at the Falstaff, Seekonk, MA that their air conditioner had let go the morning and since they couldn't get it fixed, they would have fans throughout.

That was nothing to us missing our ship to Bermuda later on as we flew over New York pier with the air traffic situation

Let say our 42 years have not been a bed of roses. more like a ROLLER COASTER, with its mamy sharp turns and the up and downs. Would I trade all these expereinces, good and bad? NO WAY

Our rocky beginnings has built a strong foundation for us to build our marriage of 42 years STRONG today June 28, 2011.

WHAT A WAY TO SPEND A HONEYMOON EVENING... It had been a most wonderful memorable extremely hot 90+ degrees Saturday, that June 28, 1969. The 11:00am wedding mass was at St Francis Xavier Church in East Providence with Father Rego and Father Diogo officiating. Following taking pictures at Slater Park in Pawtucket, RI,

We gathered family and friends to the Falstaff Restaurant in Seekonk, Ma. We were scheduled to leave the Warwick Greene Airport on American Airlines at 7:00pm for a flight to New York city to meet the Franconia Cunard line ship to go to Bermuda for our honeymoon. At about 9pm were were still flying in the air actually flying in circles. and hovering over New York city Laguardia Airport. We told the crew that the ship was leaving at 10:30pm and we were going to miss their departure if we did not land soon. they allowed us to talk ship to shore with the Captain of the liner. He told us that he could wait until 11pm, the latest, so he would not disrupt his schedule. Our luggage was red tagged, so we would be the first to get off and a cab would be waiting to take us to the pier.
We held our breaths and prayed for a safe landing in time to meet this time frame, HOWEVER this was not going to happen... this was during the time the air traffic congestion was occurring.


Our American Airline could not get a clear for landing from the traffic controller, there were just too many plane in the air all waiting to land and they each had to wait their turn. As the time progressed to 10pm than 10:15, we knew we were staying in New York and not leaving with our ship to Bermuda.
When we eventually landed at 11:25pm we went to the American Airline office to request a solution to this situation. there I was in my purple going away outfit with hat and corsage sitting on my Samsonite luggage waiting for my new husband to return and tell me everything was all right. It was past midnight now and "what a way to spend our first night together married, our Honeymoon evening.

Resolution was that American Airline would fly us on Monday, June 30th to meet the ship docked in Bermuda. they agreed to put us up at the Lexington Hotel in NY City for Sunday, now June 29th , my birthday.
All in all it wasn't so bad. We spent our honeymoon in New York City and Bermuda; A strange occurrence though, my wedding announcement stated that we would be going to Bermuda with a short stay in New York,

BIZARRE AND WEIRD.......

This anniversary ends on a positive note, just received a call from our team partner, Mark, informing us he has a signed offer from one of our clients. He took it this evening and said, I am out eating with our client now and willl see you later.

 MOM AND DAD, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

Happy Anniversary...I loved reading your story... It reminded me of a soon to be bride who was going to miss her wedding rehearsal and dinner because of a late flight snafu on a 1988 flight to Orlando ... My wife and I tried to console her...always wondered if she ever made it.
