Well, to be honest we're more out of focus than otherwise but we did make it this far and that's great. When we were married in 1986 Bean was still at home, we hadn't moved to our present home. We had a small church wedding and I made our wedding flowers from wildflowers, pine, and sagebrush which we gathered in the mountains. An older couple which Leonard had known for many years stood up with us and I got the giggles which could easily have turned into tears. For our small wedding get-together I made raspberry pie and a guest made homemade ice cream.
In the past 26 years much has happened. One of the biggest things was starting our own store from scratch and running it for 11 years. And we came out on top - it was a great experience. We've had 2 precious dogs which are gone now and they each took with them a huge chunk of our hearts.
Like most people we have a lot of ups and downs but we're still living this life together and trying to take care of each other. Diane
