Congrats to Grandpa and Grandma

I call on all my wirey pals to join me in drinking a grand ol' toast to my Mom's parents, Grandpa Abe and Grandma Reeve who live in South Africa! Today, January 14, they are celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary! Can you imagine living with the same person for that long? That's 322 dog years!!

Below is a picture of the happy couple taken in South Africa when Mom and Dad were visiting in September last year. I don't know who the wooden man is...he has an awfully big head!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! WE WISH YOU MANY MORE HAPPY AND HEALTHY YEARS TOGETHER!! Come and visit us soon - we miss you. I have met my Grandma twice and Grandpa once when he came for Mom and Dad's wedding. He calls me his "Michel" dog. Don't ask me what that means, I don't question him as he is the man responsible for bring wires into the family and for my name Axel (Grandpa owns a truck-axel manufacturing company in Johannesburg called Go Axels! I am named in his honor).

What a nice looking couple they are. And their friend with the big head is, ummm, nice too I am sure. Tell them congratulations, and muzzer says she and dad are only 9 years behind them!


Lenny said...

Congratulations to them! WOW!

Please tell your mom thanks for stopping by my mom's blog. You might warn her that it is not always very informative - just a lot of pictures, especially of me! She is always glad to talk with other people who are excited/irritated about the way things are going!

Your friend, Lenny
