HAPPY TOGETHER

Washer's spinnin, dishwasher's hummin, dryer's tumblin', all surfaces are dustless and even the Tidy Bowl man would be proud to float his boat 'round in the toilet. Yep folks, it's Deep Clean Friday where everything on the Ponderosa is spit shined, vacuumed and buffed to a shinny glow. I didn't want ya'll to think I'd fallen plumb off the hay-wagon and neglected the cleanin' over here. Ya'll know how cleanin' makes my heart sing and rocks my world but this Ozark gal wasn't deep cleanin' thirty nine years ago. Nope, I was gettin' all gussied up to marry the man of my dreams. Hey looky there...Farm Chick's got gams!!! Anybody remember Betty Grable?

January 6, 1973 was one horrifically ice covered day in the Ozarks. Funny how the day before we were all runnin' around in our shirtsleeves like it was summertime. The weather can sure change on a dime 'round these parts. Nothin' but nothin' was gonna stop these two moon~eyed soul mates from sayin' "I do!" We were swoonin' over each other worse than a boxer too darn dizzy to duck.

Our poor best man, Farm Boys big bro, ended up drivin' all night though the dreaded Ozark ice storm. My lovely flowers were delivered to the wrong weddin' and I received theirs. It was too treacherous for the professional photographer to travel from Springfield to Stockton so after askin' the guests to share we ended up with a few Kodak Brownie pictures to document our wedded bliss. Kinda like us our pictures are showin' a bit of wear and tear. Thirty nine years will do that to ya...ya know?

We toasted the big day with glasses filled with purple passion punch right after the mischievously handsome little ring barer stepped on my train rippin' it plumb off. Thank heavens for big old diaper pins!!! I would walk over hot coals in a heatwave for this fella. He fills my heart and makes my toes curl. For 39 years Hubs has been the tiptoe to my tulips, the icin' on my cake. Whew~fan me now, I'm still swoonin'! This Ozark Farm Chick has uncovered the secret to a long and happy marriage. Are ya ready? Grab a pen, ya might wanna take notes. It's double sinks and separate closets all the way baby!!!

Our marriage may have literally started out on a road more slippery than a freshly buttered ice-rink but I wouldn't trade the past thirty nine years for all the gold in Midas' treasure chests. Oops...my bad, I left out the most important secret to a successfully jubilant union. More important than a dog to a flea is the third person, God. He's hung in there like a hair in a biscuit through thick and thin blessin' us every step along our life's journey.

I can't control my love for this hunk of a Farm Boy any more than a cross eyed teacher can control her pupils. In fact we're both known to still be a bit moon~eyed. Studies show we have seven completely compatible soul mates out there in the universe. I don't buy it 'cause we sing, "me and you and you and me , no matter how ya tossed the dice it had to be." "The only one for me is you and you for me....So happy together!!!"



This Chick can shove the furniture back and do my famous happy dance while beltin' out the 1967 song 'The Turtles' recorded knockin' 'The Beatles' "Penny Lane" outta of the top slot of the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. This fabulous tune was rejected over a dozen times before 'The Turtles' jumped on it. Imagine that! Looks like persistence not only pays off in a extraordinary marriage but in great songs too, for now I can bound joyfully and sing, "we are so HAPPY TOGETHER!!!"

Love ya and happy anniversary Farm Boy!!!

  4. Happy Anniversary to you and the Farm Boy. You both look so young. Are you sure were old old enough to get hitched?
    Thanks for spillin' the beans on the secrets to a long lasting union. I did write them down.
    Have a great day!
    Now go whip up a batch of that Purple Passion Punch and hit the town!

  8. You are such a joy Nezzy! Happy Anniversary to two of God's most beautiful people. The love is so strong that I can literally feel it, clean out here. May you continue to be blessed with many more years of '... you & me ...' playing every single day.

    We did 50 last year. Lawdy the bends & pebbles along the way, but we still made it & love one another, it brought us closer, I do believe.

    Have a fabulous celebration, sweetie.
    Hugs & Love,
    TTFN ~

  12. Happy Anniversary! How wonderful that you are celebrating 39 years. I loved seeing all the pictures. I am agreeing with you on that secret to a Happy Marriage for sure! I never had the double closets or sinks but sure did have the good Lord in there. He is the cement that keeps us all together. Hope you get to do something to celebrate your day other than that Friday deep cleaning. Have a fantastic Friday!

  13. Geez Louise... so many similarities girl, between yours and ours 40 years ago last Sept! Dresses very similar, even the long mantilla veil with a blusher! We even had the same hairstyle! Love that purple! Our was blue... And our song; "Your Song" by Sir Elton!

    Congratulations on this happy day and many more blessings to come to you both!!!

    God Bless!

    'Happy Together' sung by the Turtles, is a wonderful song that goes very well with your happy life of 39 years.

  35. Happy Anniversary!!

    I started humming that tune in my head the minute I saw your title.

    You were lovely; your Prince Charming handsome, and you two have moon eyes. Just my kind of couple. In the end, the glitches just make for a better anniversary story, don't they?

    BTW, I have followed this blog repeatedly. It will show up for a day or two, and then Whooosh. It's gone from my blog list again.
    Blogger irks the stew outta me.

    Happy Anniversary!

  53. Oh Nezzy,

    First of all, thank you for coming by to visit. And don't cha just wanna squeeze those little fat legs in the blue pumps? AND DON'T YOU JUST WANNA SQUEEZE YOUR FARM BOY 'TIL HE BUSTS???? I so want to squeeze my scholar boy until he squeaks like a dog toy...teeheee...tried a simile here, but you are the QUEEN OF SIMILE!

    Oh it is so true dearest. GOD GOD GOD is the ONLY ONE that can make life like a fairy tale. Through thick and thin, ups and downs, THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH! One of the things that God has abundantly graced Ruben with is a fantastic sense of humor. Me too. That man makes me laugh EVERY DAY. If laughter is the best medicine, then I'll live to be a THOUSAND! Barring any other freak occurances!

    I CONGRATULATE YOU DEAREST ONE FOR YOUR 39 YEARS! MORE TO COME!!!! And you had me laughing so hard.....

  72. I got married to my first husband Sept of 1963 in a hurricane, we lived in Savannah and the hurricane chose that day to come, we had the wedding, but it did not bode good for the coming years, our marriage was a hurricane from day one. in 1985 I married the real man of my dreams and now we are about to have our 27th anniversary. no big dress or wedding like the first one, we wore jeans and plaid shirts and got married at the county court house with my aunt to stand with us.

  78. So Happy for You! We are the lucky ones who found our soul mates early on. So happy together. It says so much about both of you that nothing was gonna stop that wedding - not even one our treacherous Missouri ice storms that pop up out of nowhere!

    And who needs a professional photographer? You have the snaps and they turned out pretty durn good. So happy for you.

    And I knew you couldn't forget Him. I saw Him smiliing down on you 39 years ago, just as he is today.

  86. Happy celebration of love and patience and kindness and self-control! (I imagine those are just some of the virtues it takes to make a marriage happy for so many years!) My husband and I also recently celebrated our marriage- on January 3rd! I imagine you and I got married on the weekend, just a few years apart ;) We celebrated three very happy and eventful years of marriage, and each year keeps getting better! A husband that understands my horses sometimes come before him is a real keeper! :)

  105. Awww, Nezzie, what a beautiful post! Y'all are so cute on those pictures, and I fell in love with your love for each other while reading your commentary. I have a feeling a good sense of humor helps a marriage to endure, and your sense of humor and sweet nature are probably a big part of why you two are still so in love. My sweetheart and I married 42 years ago, but unfortunately, I can't take credit for the duration of our marriage. I'm afraid I could never match wits and humor with you. Belated Happy Anniversary. laurie

  106. Happy Anniversary, ya two crazy kids! Why, you looked like BABIES when you got married! I was listening with bated breath on the secrets of a happy marriage: double sinks and separate closets....that explains a LOT! Living in 400 square feet in this trailer is a LIT-TLE bit difficult! Ha ha!

  110. A girlfriend and I were talking this morning about our daughters; wondering what kind of wives they'll be. My friend is a traditional wife, who has a "woman's role" and her husband has the "man's role" which is going to work and coming home to the sofa. Marrying in my thirties, I tend to lack in some of the "womanly roles." The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, they say. I hope neither one of us is leading our daughters down the wrong path; that they will eventually marry and be able to sing "So Happy Together" 39 plus years, too.
    Congratulations Nezzy and Farm Boy!

  117. Sounds like a perfect match!! My wedding photos look so much like yours...we were married 6 months earlier than you and have celebrated our 40th only it was on the hottest day of the year! Funny to looks at our wedding pics and even though it was so hot, I had long sleeves on (empire waisted like yours) and was covered all over unlike brises now who all wear strapless winter and summer! Ha! Hope you are having a wonderful celebration...happy 39th!!!

    Not a lot of us ever get the chance to meet our soul mate and you two were so lucky to have found each other. I love these pic's and a Very Happy Anniversary to both of you. God Bless You both
    Love

  119. Nezzy, so did you celebrate your Anniversary with purple punch? Hope you had a fabulous time and many more years of fun together. Thanks for coming over to read Dodie's brave fight against the sharks.

  126. A belated happy anniversary to you both!! So glad you are Happy Together! I sure remember that song! And I do remember Betty Grable. I loved the old movies (mostly black and white) they used to show all the time on TV when I was growing up. Hope you had a wonderful anniversary!! :)

  128. YaHOOO. 39 years! I remember the song so well.
    We're headed past 35 years -- and thankful that God has been a third member for the last half.

    Blesings -- and here's to 39 more!

  131. I love reading your stories! Cute pictures too. It's almost scary how much Charity looks like you and Chris looks like Uncle Larry. I never realized how much so! Happy Anniversary...a little late. :) Love you!

  134. You and Farm Boy are the epitome of happiness and love. I only hope that my marriage and love that I have for J will be just as great! Thanks for the tips.

  135. Happy LATE anniversary! Hope it was a good day. We will celebrate our 46th this summer... my personal recipe for a long marriage is: marry a Peterson ... they don't give up when the going gets tough - and believe you me, I can get the going really tough!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Oh my goodness! I thought my husband and I were daft for getting married on December 21 (northern Virginia). You take the cake!! Even for a wedding that took a few wrong turns, it wounds like you each got yourself a winner! Congratulations on 39--and here's to at least 39 more years.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  137. So those pics look amazingly like my wedding pictures. I was married January 20, 1972 in a huge ice storm and my father's friend took the pictures because we were too cheap to spring for a professional photographer!

    My sweetie has been gone a long time now and I still miss him, but you do what you have to do to get by. Maybe I should post a few of my wedding pics on my anniversary, that'll give people a chuckle!

    I'm happy that you liked my post. I am really becoming kind of angry about the whole industrial farm thing and since I grew up on a small farm and kind of still own a small farm (horses instead of cows), it's personal to me.

    I was a little worried that some of my readers who farm would take it the wrong way. I guess it isn't really the size of the farm that bothers me, it's the way the farm is run!

    Anyhow, this comment is turning into a post, so I'll let you get back to taking care of your family and farm.

    xxoo,

    RMW

  140. Happy anniversary! I always enjoy a great love story--and it's cool you are still "happy ever after."

  141. Happy belated anniversary you two! May God continue to bless you.

  142. The fact that you made it through all the mishaps at the wedding was a good sign that you would be "happy together". Fun and happy story.

  143. I'm a little late to the party, but I'm definitely raising my coffee cup in an Anniversary toast to you and your love ... Cheers :)

  145. What a wonderful post! Thanks for sharing those memories with us. Sounds like you two are a better match than pinto beans and cornbread. May you have many more happy years.

  146. My dear, dear Nezzy,

    I am so happy to always see you come to leave me a kind word. Ruben was also thrilled that you came by and yes, ALL THAT WE DO DOES MATTER! Look at all that you have done; you have raised a family and have taught...my goodness, your wings have been 'a flappin' for a long time so imagine the fairy dust YOU have kicked up!!!

    TIGHT HUGS! Anita

  150. Wishing you a belated Happy Anniversary. I am behind in visiting around - as usual. You two were just kids! :D
    Thanks for stopping by and nice comment on the necklace.
    Cold with flurries and sleet here, but no accumulation this time - thank goodness.

    How time flies ! ! ! !

    We got a little snow and temp's in the teens with wind. Guess Winter is knocking. Let's NOT let him in.

  153. My Good Lady Wife and I were married later that same year. Your wedding photograph reminds me a little of mine - styles must have been the same in 1973 whether in the Ozarks or in Luddenden Foot.

  154. So, you're keeping each other then? Happy Anniversary! late, but still....

  157. I was curious if you ever considered changing
    the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve
    got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Look at my web site :: Dentalrootcanalss.Wallinside.com
