We really didn't know each other well at all when we got married--but we've had 65 years to get well-acquainted. No, not all the years were easy, but we made it.
We have a wonderful and huge family, 5 children, one gone on to Heaven, many grandkids and great grands--and one great-great with another on the way.
Hubby spent 20 years in the Navy as a Seabee--then 15 working for Sears, then together for over 20 years we owned, operated and lived in our residential care facility. We worked together, treated those in our care as family, and it was hard work but very rewarding.
We had some adventures too, getting to travel to many different places as we attended different Bouchercons and Left Coast Crime cons and we met lots of wonderful people that we still count as friends. We've gone on several cruises--to Mexico with various stops here and there.
We've learned a lot about each other along the way--and for the most part, it's been a blessing.
And I've got to say, he's been very supportive of my writing, and for years hauled my books, put up tents and all sorts of physical chores. He can't do that anymore, but he's still cheering me on.
