Cliff said.....



At the end of church service yesterday, the pastor asked the congregation to have a seat. He explained that a very lovely couple had celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last week and that they wanted to renew their wedding vows, today, in front of family and church friends. Oh fun! I was excited.

The pianist began playing Pachelbel’s Canon in D and then the lovely couple began walking hand in hand down the aisle. As they approached the pastor, he had them join him at the pulpit. He gave a brief history of their lives for the past 40 years and then proceeded to have them repeat their wedding vows. I couldn’t help but smile because you could see the love and happiness this couple was experiencing. And at the end..they kissed! So Sweet!

Sitting there, I already knew that Cliff would say something about it after church. So, I decided ahead of time what my response would be. I wanted to shock him, no wait…...I wanted to scare the bejeebies out of him. HaHa!

Sure enough, we were walking to the car and Cliff said, “I didn’t know I would be going to a wedding, today.” Without batting an eye, I said, “We are so doing that when we’ve been married 40 years”.  And just as soon as I got the words out of my mouth....Cliff said, “Pffft”.  

Backfired!

It didn’t even phase him. I can never get one up on him. LOL!!

  1. We will celebrate 46 years in April and there is no way I would ever get Steve to do that!

    I laughed when I saw your blog title in my blog roll. We just came home from seeing La La Land and now we are listening to the sound track.

    1. He really does know me so well. He knew I was bluffing. Great idea about the party, though. We've been married for 36 years. Guess I have a few years yet for that party.

  8. We had a lovely party for our 40th. We did go back to the Church where we took our vows but not for a ceremony, just to take Mom to church. Or as Jack puts it "Returning to the scene of the crime"...very funny!
