Marriage at the table

One spring, my husband went to make a picnic table for our daughter for Mother's Day. He didn't know exactly what the measurements were. So he went to Billings Park and measured a picnic table there.

He got his wood and nails from a local merchant. It's beautiful. We still have it in the backyard. We like to sit there around 4 p.m. when it gets a little less warm.

My husband sometimes checks it out early and if he thinks it is just right, he goes out there first. Then I join him. We have had wonderful conversations.

We are still married. We are going on our 47th wedding anniversary. Wish us luck.
