I Do, I Do




Three years ago yesterday at 10 in the morning, Ron and I got ourselves 'hitched'!



After 36 years we decided it was time! So off to the Supreme Court building in Halifax we went.



We asked two of our friends to stand for us and they drove here from New Brunswick that morning.



It was a very private affair and was over before we knew it! 


Ron got me these roses.......what a guy!

This statue of the Buddha really has nothing to do with all this other than after all these years together we are beginning to mellow out somewhat and are 'finding our way' with the assistance of some of  his teachings.

  3. Hey, Ron beat you to it by blogging the news first. Is he always that impatient?
    Congratulations to the two of you. Thirty-six years of living in sin is quite a long time.

  11. well you certainly had a long engagement! did you want to be sure you were right for each other?? ha! i wonder how getting married after being together a long time differs from the feeling of getting married in the "blush" of new love. i suspect that both have their benefits! i wish you the best and send out hearty congratulations!

    1. Thanks Tony! I am sure it is quite different and I am glad that younger gays can do that now, at least in Canada and parts of the States.
