Each year, Sun N Fun, our winter home in Sarasota, hosts a wonderful complementary luncheon for all couples who have or will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary that year …
This year, there were 224 couples attending who were married 32 differenct states and several Canadian provinces and who have 222 children, 214 grandchildren and 55 great-grandchildren.
Thirty-seven couples have or will celebrate their 60th anniversary this year … with one couple having been married in 1951 when I was 9 and Debbie was just 5!
After a delicious lunch we were entertained by very-talented Charlie Romo, a 21-year old singer from New York, who sang many songs from the 50s and did excellent renditions of Bobby Darin and Tony Bennett.
For us it's now 51½-plus … and counting!
