You are so blessed Chris and I know you know it. God has been so wonderful to you. Much love to you both/Lillian
Belated: But wishing you and your dear husband many, many more happy and healthy years together!
Sorry, I was so shocked about the sudden death of this young grandson of Yvonne....I had to think of good side and sad side of live.....
more reason to be grateful for every single day of life lived in peace,
mental and physical health and all the loved ones safe and healthy too.
Such a tragedy makes us aware how fragile our lives are
Wishing good luck to all cuties and prayers and comfort for all who are in need
Happy Anniversary Chris and Trevor , a great milestone ,wishing you many more years together

Hi Chris, congratulations to you both, and many, many to come ! You are just 2 months ahead of hubby and I. We celebrate 43 years on March 19th.
Well, congratulations to you both too Maria. 1972 was a good year wasn't it? Love Chris
Happy Anniversary for yesterday!
I would be a year behind you in the number of years married competition :-), but he wasn't a sticker.
Luckily I found a better one and WE will be celebrating our 36th on 24th Feb.
Love your fridge magnet.
Now, are you aiming for the letter from the Queen? You have to wait to No. 60 for that! Best of luck!
Thanks Patricia, I doubt we will make that milestone. Of course it depends on health etc. I like my magnet too. Love Chris
Happy Anniversary to you!!! Hope you have many more. Devon
Thanks so much DeVon, love the cartoons. Love Chris
Congratulations! It's always a joy to see a couple that has stayed together for so many years - there is so much of the breakups because they don't know how to work things out - becoming 1 unit.
Again - congratulations.
Thanks Linda, it's nice to be one of the older couples! Love Chris
Happy Anniversay to you both!! SO sorry about Yvonnes grandson too. Suzanne

Thank you very much Gerry, yes, we are lucky to have them so close by to us. Love Chris
1. It's been so hot here - I had a shower only half an hour before we left and my hair was still wet when we arrived at the Restaurant - it took the whole drive in (20 mins) before I cooled down! For lunch I had Slow Cooked Lamb with a Spinach and Ricotta pastry parcel with a Rocket and Capsicum salad and then a Creme Brulee for dessert.
2. Trevor had Scallops with rice, a Caesar salad and a serve of Chips and 2 beers. I had one glass of Champagne.
3. One of fishing trawlers that had just come in with stacks of sea birds trailing it! They were throwing the offcuts off the back of the boat!
you both look so satisfied !
Yes, we do, don't we. It must have been the great meal! he he he!!! Love Chris
Beautiful pictures of both of you.
Looking good - both of you!
Congratulations! I too have been blessed with a loving husband. It will be our 38th anniversary on the 24th. Little did we know the things that were in store for us... but isn't it wonderful to have someone to share it all with!!? I wish you many more happy years together!
Love & Hugs, Nadyne
Thanks Nadyne, yes, it's great to have your partner with you. I am not looking forward to tomorrow's funeral of one of my fellow parishioners - they were married for nearly 60 years. John is devastated to lose his beloved wife. They were one of the many "older" married couples from our church. Love Chris
Many, many congratulations to you both. Much love Sarah

Hi Carolyn, congratulations to you too for your next wedding anniversary. Trev and i went to Scratchley's on the Newcastle foreshore. It's a beautiful restaurant overhanging the harbour.

Congratulations on 43 years together. Wishing you both many, many more. Hugs Lynn
January 22 is a lucky day here too . Both our oldest son Edward and our grandson Kevin will celebrate their birthdays.
Congratulations Lynn on your Edward and Kevin's birthdays. Over here there is a wonderful cricket commenter called Richie Benaud and one of his catch phrases is 2 for 222! If you ever get a chance to listen to a CD called the 12th Man by Billy Birmingham that is on it. Richie is also our Australian Ambassador for the Eat more Lamb campaign. Check it out on Google. Love Chris (link below hope it works)
For your information - 1st person Richie speaks to is Captain James Cook the founder of Australia.
2. Burke and Wills famous Australian explorers
3. Ned Kelly ( a notorious Bushranger)
4. Don Bradman (who was Australian's most famous cricketer)
5. Ita Buttrose (was editor of the Australian Women's Weekly and the magazine Cleo)
6. Billy Birmingham a mimic who portrays all the famous cricket players of the world (on the wall behind him you can see the advert for the 12th Man)
7. Sam Kekovich (previous Lamb Ambassador for the past few years) and he was a famous Australian Rules Football player. The commercial is a real hoot!
congrats, wow 43 years is quite amazing today when it seems easier to split than to travel over the hurdles, hope you have many, many more,
Thanks Michelle, it's been a wonderful marriage. We never argue, I think we were soul mates from the moment we met. Love Chris
It is great to read some wonderful news during this mourning for this young tragic death.........congrats to you and your loving husband for this special day and always!
Thanks very much Vicki, I agree with you, love Chris
Thanks so much, love Chris
Congratulations to you both Chris. Hope you have a lovely day. Life does give us good times but sometimes also some very tough times to handle. Yvonne's family have some very tough times ahead, I can speak from experience.
Thanks Marg, yes, it's just heartbreaking. Mum and I are attending a funeral of one of our beloved parishioners tomorrow. John and Jill were inseparable, it's just heartbreaking when you know someone whose life has been very blessed and they lose their life partner. Love Chris
Gratulation to your Anniversary, wish you both many, many more years together. Bärbel
Thanks so much Barbel, it's been a good, long and happy marriage so far. Love Chris
Happy Anniversary to you both! Hopefully you will never feel old just enjoy every moment as if it could be your last, so you will never have regrets with the time you have spent together, 3 children and 7 almost 8 grand children says you will enjoy the coming years as you watch them grow and have children and grandchildren of their own, God willing. Hope today will be extra special for you to celebrate your union and hope that it is not a 96 degree day today for you, unless you can get into the water today- NO Great Whites allowed! Enjoy!
Thanks for your good wishes. Sharks have left our beaches thankfully. It's only going to be about 26C (79F) which is just perfect. Still very high humidity at the moment 96% - yucky. I'm just about to go and have a shower. We've been out for our walk and I've done the washing and about to hang it out. Love Chris
Chris Congratulations to you and Trevor on your 43 wedding anniversary. I hope that you celebrate and have a great day and see some of the family.
Thanks Caroline, Trev's just gone over to visit Dana and give her some of her memorabilia that he found whilst going his files. He thought she would like to keep them rather than us. Love Chris
I too seem to be passing family bits on to the next generation and piles of their stuff that they have left behind.
