May you have many more years of shared blessings, Ron and Nancy!
Hmm. I was three when you got hitched! Sorry that I didn't see this yesterday, but Mockingbird and I spent the whole day in a way of which you would approve. We helped to slaughter and butcher hogs, shared what we knew with children (trad archery and the whole flint and steel thing) and enjoyed good old-fashioned country ways and fellowship. I hope that someday I might have done a fraction of the good work that you and your wonderful bride have accomplished in the preservation and forwarding of our heritage of traditional lore.
Congratulations on a shared life well-lived, and mates well chosen. It is a proud path that you two are walking. Killdeer

Nancy and I had a great time at the dinner party last night. Thanks to the Shrew Haven Crew and their lovely wives who went out of their way to make it a very special and memorable evening.
Greg and Dianne, Roger and Laurie and Kevin and Lisa, thank you. A special thanks to Dianne for the delicious cake she made and for all the decorations and corsages.
Carlton and his lovely wife Kathy stopped by to give their congratulations. Carlton is the Blacksmith who makes the Shrew Hawks.
Our Wedding picture set at the end of the table the entire evening.

Ron & Redbird, Got in at midnight last night after driving home in the snow for 2 hrs, yes, it does snow in TN sometimes. I get up, get on TG here and what do I find.... ? One of life's greatest things, two people who have shared 50 years together. Congrats Ron & Redbird !!!
We attended the second annual TTAS banquet at Pappy'place in Twin Oaks. TJ and Chad did a wonderful job speaking, but I could not help but think back to last year and our very first TTAS banquet. We sure missed you fine folk, but as we all see now...... You had, "bigger fish to fry ". Congrats again on 50 wonderful years and memories.
Wonderful story hearing about the two of you spending half a century together. Thanks for all the pictures of the happy couple. That looks like Dave Nelson (Ozzie and Harriett's older son) in the wedding picture!
Best wishes, Allan

Congratulations to both of you. 50 years together is special. My parents just spent their 55th year together and I am celebrating my 25th next week. I hope me and my wife make another 25 and be as blessed as you and Ms. Nancy.

I'm 8 months away from 25 years with the same wife. And it seems to get harder every year. It takes something special for a couple to stay together as long as you have. Perhaps I need to try again to interest my wife in archery, (hunting may be pushing it). That may be what it takes to see us through to the 50th!
CONGRATULATIONS AND HOPE YOU ENJOY MANY MORE YEARS TOGETHER!!!!! Hal
