~ Carey Get Out Your Cane ~

37 years ago today, my Honey and I made a vow to Love, Honor and Cherish each other.
Looking back upon these years that have managed to shuffle by like cards in a deck, I see the events of our lives being systematically stacked together, one upon another.
We have enjoyed each other,given,taken and loved. Our secret? Honoring who we are and liking and respecting one another.We have learned this through the leading and our walk with the Lord.
Today, after meeting with others at Prayer Point and Coffee at McDonalds, we took our brisk walk along the sea wall.
I brought along my bathing suit and tan lotion and we headed down to the beach to get some sand between our toes.
The salt air carries promises of a great summer here, if I will commit to visiting.
We are basically alone here this morning. There are some early vacationers that stroll along the water break. CAUTION!!! SUNSCREEN REQUIRED!!! Cover your freshly buzzed head!
I long to linger and be sun drenched, walk into town barefooted,sporting that bohemian skirt, for a fish taco and some salsa.
Carey, get out your cane and I'll put on my finest silver~
Reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. Where is that album anyway? I must search for it on Amazon!
My birthday fast approaching, the world at my command, my beach combing honey at my side, I must gather my belongings and climb up the bank to "Walter" my ever faithful '67 V.W.! Ban the Bars!!!

What a great post!

You are blessed indeed with your sweet husband and he is also blessed with a wonderful wife. :)

I can't wait to go to the beach with you next month! I know that things will be busy with the new grandbaby, but maybe we will have time to sit and chat together on the sand. :)

We will wiggle or toes in the sand and play chase with the waves!!
