Howard and Freddy's Heart

Howard and Freddy are two of my most favorite people in the world. Howard is 83 (next month 84 - NOT yet). He and Freddy have been married for more than 60 years. They are still as in love today as the day they walked down the aisle.

We could all learn a lot from these beautiful people!

They have a beautiful little house out in the country, and they keep the yard and gardens immaculate ... though it's getting harder, and they need more help now.

This is one of their whimsical garden ornaments ... and it is my favorite.

A weathered and windblown heart,
Still bravely facing it's world.

Even after all this time ...

That is so heartwarming (no pun intended). How wonderful to be together for so many years.

What a great couple they must be. I'm so glad you were able to help your sister with her yard sale, and also that the car was only a bad battery cable connection. Sorry I haven't been around much lately.

I love Howard and Freddy--I can see the touch of the whimsical in Howard's eyes when I have the privilege of seeing him.

I love this photo. Hug Howard for me, would you please? And send another hug to Freddy.
