60 years together
Their three kids, all successful, agreed to a Sunday dinner in their honor.
"Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad," gushed Son No. 1 'Sorry I'm running late. I had an emergency at the hospital with a patient, you know how it is, and I didn't have time to get you a gift."
"Not to worry," said the father. "Important thing is we're all together today."
Son No. 2 arrived. "You and Mom look great. Dad, I just
flew in from Montreal between depositions and didn't have time to shop for you."
Its nothing," said the father "We're glad you were able to come."
Just then the daughter arrived "Hello and happy anniversary! Sorry, but my boss is sending me out of town and I was really busy packing so I didn't have time to get you anything."
After they had finished dessert, the father said, "There's something your mother and I have wanted to tell you for a long time. You see, we were really poor, but we managed to send each of you to college.
Through the years your mother and I knew we loved
each other very much, but we just never found the
time to get married."
The three children gasped and said, "WHAT? You mean we're bastards?"
"Yep," said the father, "Cheap ones, too.
Thinking of leaving our adult kids out of our will....
Together 50 years here.... Grown kids never even mail us a card...
Their kids are legitimate, though...
45 yrs this Sunday......one adult dtr very gracious towards us, one adult son kind of a cluttered life and he rarely thinks of cards or calls....one dtr at home with aspergers will sometimes make her own card for us but she also will buy me a starbuck tea once in a while, or a book from the store...
Thanks, It’s been a long day and I needed a chuckle.
Marriages seem not to endure as long as they did.
My grandparents celebrated their ‘diamond’ (75 years) a while back. All their 9 children and 45 grandchildren attended.
Made the local newspaper - even though they were just farm laborers - they were very healthy and devoted.
John and Martha have been married for fifty years. And that got John to thinking.
Martha, John said, you were always there for me. When I got my draft notice, you were there. When I was injured in that car accident, you were there. When I got laid off from the factory, you were there. And when our house was destroyed by a tornado, you were there.
Martha, John continued, you are just bad luck.
So sorry to hear that. That can be hurtful. We have both sides of the spectrum going with offspring. It is so hard to understand the lack of gratitude and attention from the “bad” ones.
We celebrated my parents’ 60th in 2017 with a small, visit-them-at-home party.
My son and youngest daughter live within 35 minutes of us, and my older daughter lives 4 houses away, so we see them all frequently, although my son rarely calls which makes me a little sad. However, Im pretty lucky that we are still a close, loving family. Thank you, Jesus!
I think next April on our anniversary, I'll try out this hilarious response... just for kicks...
My parents 53 years. Wouldve been 54 the other week. Constitution Day.
They werent even married until almost 30, either.
