On August 6, 1966 in Gales Ferry, CT

Carol and I were married.

The beautiful bride

I was an ensign in the Navy attending Submarine School. Carol was a medical technologist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. I was 23, the bride was 24.

We met at a  sports car club rally in December, 1965. Carol was driving a green  Austin Healy Bug-Eye Sprite and I has a red 1966 Triumph TR-4A. Eight months later we were married.
 Forty seven years, three children, and four grandchildren later,we're as happy as the day we married.

We've been to a lot of places and done a lot of things together in 47 years.

Hiking to a glacier in Alaska, 1999

Somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, 2000
Kayaking in the FL Keys

Near Stowe, VT, 2004

Biking the old 7 mile bridge. Marathon,FL

We don't do these things so much these days but we take pleasure knowing we did at one time.
Our outdoor adventures are more modest but just as enjoyable as they were over the years. It take's more then a heart attack, a stroke and broken hip to stop the two of us.

We're looking forward to, hopefully, another fifteen or twenty great years together.

I'm a little late to this blog ... years late, still the things you and your wife have done are very inspiring.
