Aloha!


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!


This weeks question:

MY NEIGHBOURS ARE CELEBRATING THEIR 70TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TODAY! DO YOU KNOW OF ANYONE WHO HAS ACHIEVED THIS MILESTONE?

WOW! That is incredible! Longest I've known are my best friends parents. They live in Yorkshire and have been married for 60! I thought that was a long time, but 70 really is something! Congratulations to the Happy Couple - I am sure they are an inspiration to many!

Mighty M said...

That is great!

Congrats to your neighbors! My aunt and uncle reached and surpassed their 70th wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful party!

My Hubs and I will more than likely NOT reach this milestone----only because we married each other when we were both 40 so, you
know, do the math and it just doesn't work! Boo Hoo! Right now we're hoping to hit our 50th though!

Aloha!
