April is a celebratory month in our family. On the first, April Fool's Day, the BRD and her Beau Jack go down to the county courthouse to take out a marriage license. It's not that they intend to marry. It's just become a silly tradition with them. Six years and counting. Then they take a chauffered limousine to a luncheon spot and meet a bunch of friends. This year we joined them. I took pictures but for some reason this is the only one I saved.

The BRD said she liked this one because she looked thin. As usual, I just think she looks beautiful.

It's crazy but I did save a couple of other pictures, shot through the window of the club where we had lunch.

Amazing what a little (a lot) of money can do in a desert climate, isn't it. This is the Club at Prescott Lakes. I guess those two bodies of water are the lakes. Beau Jack told me when visitors from the Midwest come to play golf they say "Those aren't lakes. They're just ponds!"

But, getting back to the subject of this blog. In another few days, the BRD will celebrate her birthday. Then one of my sons has his birthday. A couple of weeks after that I will have an epochal birthday (more on that later). And today is the 44th anniversary of the day SWMBO and I got married. (Happy anniversary, dear.)

So, all in all, it's a good month for the greeting card industry.


  1. Congrats to all and to all a good life.

  2. Nice were no April fool!

  3. Much joy on your special day. Happy Anniversary. June is the big month in our family.

  4. Happy anniversary.

    Those desert communities bring very mixed feelings. The greenery within the desert is very refreshing and unexpected....but the extravagant water usage must give a person pause.....

  5. Happy anniversary! And yes, the BRD IS beautiful. I so envy her her hair...

  6. Wow! Congrats! How did you get all those stars to line up like that. I knew you had "powers". ;)

  7. Such a nice day for your family! Happy belated anniversary.
