it takes a picture


I found this picture and it reminded me of the day Mr FD proposed to me – in a greenhouse. He was studying to be an agricultural scientist, and we met in the library where I was working. Every day he had to go to the greenhouse to water his plants as he was doing an experiment on the effect of waterlogging.

This day, I was with him. Well, obviously I had to be if he was going to propose! I was sitting in the doorway, on an upturned drum and he turned the conversation to marriage.

Today is our 40 th wedding anniversary.

  1. Happy anniversary, FDs!!! My son shares your day with his 31st birthday. I suppose if I could have stood his father, we would be having a similar anniversary this year. But he was definitely no Mr. FD (and I am no FlamingoDancer by a long shot).

    Regardless of the waterlogging experiment, Mr. FD defintely got the best results!


  2. Congratulations! If all goes well we will also hit 40 this year. Doesn’t seem as long as long as that does it? And what a time we had!


  3. Belated congratulations! I have every reason to believe that you looked then – as now – like a willowy brunette peeking from behind a bamboo fan.

    Boyfriend and I will be together 20 years this September, if that counts for anything.
