Happy Couple Mark Their 80th Wedding Anniversary! Congrats!
"A Wisconsin couple celebrating their 80th wedding anniversary agree the secret to their long marriage is that the husband `knows who`s boss.`
Roy Fleming, 100, and Dorothy Fleming, 95, marked their 80th anniversary Monday with a party in Brookfield, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday."
I hope the Flemings and all two of their friends who are still alive enjoyed the party. I`m sure they partied like it was the last day of their lives.
Granddaughter Shar Flemng says that Grandpa can`t see very well, and Grandma can`t hear very well. I bet Grandpa lets his wife have her way, but not without some guff that she can`t hear: OK, you old bat, we will watch the Golden Girls instead of the football game. Old Roy hasn`t left Dorothy, because he`s too old to see that she has wrinkles on her wrinkles.
The couple`s son, Earl, will soon be celebrating his 60th wedding anniversary, let us hope he is blind and his wife is deaf.
I can`t imagine being with the same person for 80 years; I would have killed myself or my wife after twenty years. But I`m happy for the old couple, may they enjoy many more years (days?) together.
