Green Bay Day Part 2

Saturday was 1/2 the reason for the trip; The 60th Anniversary of Julee's Grand Parents' wedding. They are a wonderful couple, who married 60 years ago, moved to GreenBay, raised a family of six and were a tremendous source of love and comfort to their many Grand Children. I felt honored to be in their presence, and they welcomed me like family. After spending an hour at their house with Julee, I told her while leaving, that NOW I get why she moved so far away from all of us here in AZ. 
I'm not printing their pictures here as I didn't get their permission before leaving Green Bay. The occasion started with renewal of vowels during the Saturday afternoon mass and then on to the party. For the last 2 months, I've been working via e-mail with Julee on the slide show of their last 60 years together. Getting 60 years worth of photos in the right order to the right music for a family, whose complete cast of characters was unknown to me, was difficult to say the least. Everyone seemed to like it;  Julee's choice of music was spot on and we saw enough tears in the group to feel like we'd succeeded. 
Sunday, was mostly for rest and watching the Packer Game at Julee's Uncle's house.

 Julee I know you're going to read this, AND I'll tell you all that you haven't learned near enough bad words unless you've watched, or listened to a Packer game with Julee!


Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.

Wow! 60 years. My parents reached 54 years together, and on the 24th of this month my chica and I reach our 27th anniversary. In an era of disposable marriages, I love to hear of the ones that stand the test of time.

That is just too funny, I don't like sports much but I'll watch a game with Julee just for the experience. lol

Betty Flocken said...

LMAO Yeah, I will pass that on to Paul. It's HIS fault for all the Text Messages he sent about Dodger Dogs knowing you're a cub fan..

Joe! Julee is talking about the game at her Uncle's house.... I WAS talking about the car ride to the Airport listening to the Game on the radio!!!! LOL

Betty, lol, oh the car ride.. i didnt even get to see the game. Was I that bad? I can't help it. I was trying to behave. I get into a zone. And I wasn't even drinking. Just having fun. If I yell loud enough they might hear me! HEE HEE. Luv ya. It's really an experience to watch or go to a game w/me. Better yet, you think I'm bad, my cousin & aunt are worse than me. Runs in the family.

That's right, Paul got what he deserves.. but I still luv him anyway...

Wow...60 years! That's great! Rob will be 83 years and I will be 81 years old on our 60th Annv. (if I calcualted right). If Rob and I live to our late 90's we may make it to 75 years. We better start eating better!

March 2, 2056, you are invited to the party!
