June 20, 1980

This Friday will mark our 28th wedding anniversary. Here we are on that happy day.... oh so many years ago. Riding off into the sunset, sitting on the trunk of my brother-in-law's oh so cool TR7...he said we did permanent damage to the suspension system...sorry dude.
I had painted that "Just Married" sign for my girlfriend the year before and borrowed it from her for my own wedding...yup...we were even recyclers way back then.
Today I'm off to buy a few art supplies to paint another sign just like that one...only with lillies around the border, the sign I'm painting is for the daugher of my friend for whom I painted that original sign wayyyy back in 1979.

Hey wait...I don't know how to paint lillies. Oh well...way back then I didn't know how to paint daisies either, what the heck....I'll give it a whirl. Besides, it's getting taped to a get-away car, who's gonna notice?

Wish me luck.

What a cute photo of the two of you!
Happy Anniversary!
I think it is so sweet that you are painting the sign.
Curious - is it on canvas? - really cute.
