I had a notification pop today …
My mother was born October 24th 1943, and my father was born November 6th 1939. Both from opposite ends of the kingdom. My mother was born in Warwickshire, England, and my father was born in Glasgow, Scotland.
They met in 1962, after my uncle introduced them to each. My mother apparently said “I’m going to marry him” after my father walked away. And they did.
They married in Rugby, in Warwickshire on December 5th 1964. Today they celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary. There has been a lot that should have seen both of them dead, but they fought through. We are a family of fighters. We don’t give up.
Through all of that they stayed together. In sickness and in health.
Congratulations mum and dad. Happy Golden Wedding Anniversary
Need I say more? Incidentally, I have just purchased “Doctor Who – The Beginning” from Amazon
This track was originally released in 1963 by Roy Orbison, and it is the song that my dad proposed to my mum with due to the line “Mary marry me”. Although released in 1963 by Orbison, it was not until 1966 that the next artist hit number 1 with the track, two years after he died in a plane crash. This track went into the charts in the summer of 1966 and hit the number one slot in September of the same year. It became the UK song of the year becoming the first overseas performer to receive this.
This is for my parents on their 48th Anniversary
Happy Anniversary Mary and Alex Forbes
