2 VALENTINE ANNIVERSARIES.......

IT IS WITH GREAT PRIDE I SAY 

HAPPY 1ST VALENTINE ANNIVERSARY 
TO MY HANDSOME GUY, RAZ 

WE ATTENDED OUR FIRST FORMAL 1 YEAR AGO TODAY
AT QUEEN OF HEARTS!!

TODAY WE ARE ATTENDING TWO FORMALS 
and ONE informal dance

Raz looks more dashing than James Bond in his black tie!!!
1.  MAYORZ  Murphy and Stanley's
HEART 2 HEART  DANCE

Since it is such a special day, this Diva has two gowns.  I'll make a quick change for the Scout Cat's Hearts and Flowers Dance
Thanks to my Guy, Raz's mom!!

2.  Raz decided to go with white tie and tails for the
Cat Scouts Ball



3.  Sadie Hawkins Dance hosted by Tabby Cats
Raz and I quickly changed into our Denim
and boots..(I took a double dose of Geritol too).  Now it is time for a little boot scoot boogie.

Raz is a looking fine in his Cowboy hat too!!

JUST CALL US TWINKLE TOES
GOOD THING WE ARE BOTH
NOCTURNAL! 

While we're celebrating I'd like to say 
Happy Happy 45th Wedding Anniversary 
to Mom and Dad
Lots of love 
Madi

FEBRUARY 14, 1970
As you can see, Mom's love of red has been lifelong.  Her attendants
wore red dresses

PEOPLE OFTEN SAY AHHHHH WHEN WE TELL THEM OUR ANNIVERSARY IS 
FEBRUARY 14TH.  We always say thanks to USMC they helped us with the date.

At the time my husband was in USMC Reserves (United States Marine Corp) . They had monthly reserve drills.
Shortly after our August 1969 engagement we decided to get married in February 1970. My husband started trying to find the exact date of the Feb. 1970 drill weekend.
Days turned in to weeks then a few months passed.  Still no date from the USMC.  We had lots of reservations to book so we selected February 7, 1970, 2 pm.  Lo and behold literally 
hours before I was going to mail the wedding invitations to the printer we found out the February 1970  drill was going to be on February 7, 1970.  We made an 'about face' (pun intended) called all the folks we had reservations with to see if we could change to 
February 14, 1970.  Thankfully everyone was A ok with the change.  Our church had another wedding on 2/14/70 at 2 pm.  We changed out time to 4 pm.



We thank the USMC for helping us choose the
day of Love for our Wedding Day.
