Dias de los Muertos


Thirty six years ago my sweetie and I were in mexico watching the local dias de los muertos celebrations...we had just spent a month in mexico and knew we'd be leaving soon, so it was a very special time for us...each year on november 2, I remember our stay in that lovely country.
Four days later, on my 22nd birthday, we started back home in our dear little VW bus...and a month later we were married. This time of year is very evocative for me...and we'll soon be celebrating our 36th anniversary...my, how time flies when you're having fun!

Photo is of me and our siamese kitten, chisai, standing by brunnhilde, our 1958 VW bus...

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful memory and photo with all of us, Bobbi. My husband and I will be married 24 years tomorrow, so I can well appreciate the importance of your anniversary next month.

Congrats on 36 years! Love the pic (hey, I used to have a dog named Chisai (japanese for little one) when I was a kid).
