Number 50

Golden wedding 2

“I now pronounce you man and wife, you may now change your Facebook status!” ~Unknown

A card For Graham.

By today’s standards, we were little more than kids on our wedding day, with an expectation to live Happily Ever After! Well, that was my expectation! Does that actually ever happen?

Our favourite song back then was the Beatles singing Hey Jude. One of my memories of that song is of me singing it very loudly in a club in Morecambe Bay where you were working, I followed it by throwing up in a caravan park on our way home. My Apologies for that!

Do you remember how our dog Sandy used to bark at us,  jump up, and try to stop us having a cuddle. Only the other day Sophie reminded me of that.

On our Silver Anniversary you asked, Shall we celebrate?  I answered – What is there to celebrate?

I was angry with you, you’d done something that spoilt everything. That’s life I suppose, and hey I got over it.

Then you went and died and turned all our lives upside down, but this time there was no coming back from it, or so I thought.

Well, what a surprise, life, as they say, does go on and guess what, it turned out there was light at the end of the tunnel after all, you could almost say a beacon, but that’s another story.

For now though, do you remember those Thursday nights long ago? Whenever you weren’t working, we would drive over the top of the moors for the country nights at the Sun Inn. We’d listen to the band and have a dance. I always enjoyed the simple nights the best.

Those days are long gone, and such a lot of water has passed beneath our bridge. Gosh, fifty years Graham! Shall we raise a glass and listen again to your favourite track, you used to sing it, remember? You took me to see Don, we had second-row seats,  I wonder why the front row was left empty?

One of my favourite bands was Dr Hook, so shall we finish on my favourite track? Obviously, I shall sing very loudly but will refrain from throwing up!

Happy Golden Wedding Anniversary Graham.

 

Lyrics – More like The Movies For You

I guess the dance is over now
So you just courstey, and I’ll bow
And ask the band to play us Auld Lang Syne
And I’ll just take whats left of me, right back to where it used to be
And you’ll go fly your magic carpet far across the sky

I wish I could have made it more like the movies for ya
Some pretty technicolour way it’s never been
Im sorry when I kissed you, you only heard me whisper
You never got to hear those violins
Did ya girl?
No you never got to hear those violins, no

The castles that you built so high, were just too steep for me to climb
And I guess these dirty streets of mine, were just to rough for you
I wish I coulda helped you see
Just one of your sweet childhood dreams
But though I tried I could not make not one of them come true

I wish I could have made it more like the movies for ya
Some pretty technicolour way it’s never been
Im sorry when I kissed you, you only heard me whisper
You never got to hear those violins
Did ya girl?
No you never got to hear those violins, no

Ohhhhhhhhhh Im sorry when I kissed you, you only heard me whisper
You never got to hear those violins
No you never got to hear those violins

    A very touching, emotional and love filled post to a man whom you loved and loved you in return. A best friend, husband and someone whose presence you miss very much. God bless you for your courage and love.

    Oh Sue. Such great sentiments, we spend so much time together but sometimes we don’t appreciate the simple best times. Love is a weird and wonderful thing that we, and our children don’t understand. Happy golden wedding thoughts to you. Xxc

    1. Barbara, how lovely to see you here. I appreciate and am grateful that you always read my posts and I thank you for your lovely comments. You have been my confidante and friend, (how long is it since our children tied the knot, seventeen years?) and I couldn’t have wished for a kinder and more understanding family member. Sorry I missed you yesterday. xx 🙂
