Celebration for 65 years of Marriage

Hi Everyone:  We just returned from Prince George where Lloyd's parents celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary.  It was a delightful weekend with family traveling from Victoria, Surrey and Kamloops.  For us, it was a 7 hour drive each way but well worth it.  65 years is a milestone not to be missed.  On Saturday afternoon we went out to the family cabin on Bednesti Lake for a hot dog roast.  The weather was great, not too hot, not too cold and the best rain.  A good old fashioned hot dog roast with the sticks whittled by a grandson-in-law.  The cabin is awesome as Lloyd's Dad built it out of logs from another property outside of Prince George.
