Mancat Monday


Miles: Once upon a time a long long time ago, after WW 2,

Pierro: These two people met at a Young Christians Groop
in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
They did not know each other but they got to be best friends
And on Joon 25, 1947, they got married.
Miles: This is our mom's mom and daddy.
Now they live in Annapolis Maryland.

Pierro: There was not a lot of sugar or flour available after the war to make a weddingcake, and our gramma's best girlfriends saved up their very own ration cards to buy enough of these things to make a cake for them!
This is their wedding picture

Miles: gramma's wedding dress is made of beautiful velvet, so pretty
Pierro: and today they celebrate 65 bonkbonk years together.

Our mom is very proud and happy about that.

Miles: Yesterday, Mom and daddy abandoned us and went to their house and
our mom made a bronkie party for them!

A wedding anniversary
is the celebration of love, trust,
partnership, tolerance and tenacity.
The order varies for any given year.

Congrats to the lovely couple. How wonderful to have spent 65 years together.

We have lots of Dutch friends here in New Zealand as many families emigrated after the war. We have eaten lots of Specula biscuits, rollmops and salty licorice. We also now have a birthday calender in our bathroom like our Dutch friends.

Hugs to all.
