FEB 4, ’14 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GARY BRUCE!!!!

FEB 4, ’14 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GARY BRUCE!!!! I WON’T SAY HOW OLD GARY IS– BUT I HAVE LOVED TELLING HIM ALL THESE YEARS THAT I MARRIED A MUCH OLDER MAN!!!! 🙂   hee hee

ALSO 37 YEARS AGO TODAY –GARY ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM!!!

GARY ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM ON OUR SECOND “REAL DATE”!!!  NO KIDDING— & I SAID –YES! AND WE WERE MARRIED LESS THEN FIVE MONTHS LATER!!   I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THAT FOR EVERYONE– BUT IT HAS WORKED FOR US!!! AND WE BOTH SAY– IT GETS BETTER EVERY YEAR!!!

Image

THIS IS GARY & HIS FIRST CAR & IN  HIS HIGH SCHOOL YEARS!!!!

Image

THIS IS THE GARY I MET— & FELL IN LOVE WITH—   🙂

Image

THIS IS WHEN I WAS SKINNY & GARY HAD HAIR!!!!!!!   🙂

Image

GARY & MY DAD  (WALT PHILLIPS)!!!!

GARY & I REALLY REALLY STARTED ENJOYING LIFE– WHEN WE SIZED DOWN — WAY- WAY- WAY DOWN FROM OUR FORMER LIVES–  & WE BOTH QUIT WORKING– & RETIRED & MOVED FROM KANSAS TO BRANSON, MO.

WE HAD NO FAMILY OR FRIENDS WHO LIVED HERE— BUT IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST CHOICES WE EVER MADE IN OUR LIVES!!!!

Image

WHEN WE MOVED TO BRANSON– IT WAS LIKE A MILLION POUNDS HAD BEEN TAKEN OFF OF US!!!!

Image

OR YOU MOVE AWAY FROM “FAMILY” —  THAT IF YOU WERE NOT RELATED TO THEM– YOU NEVER EVER WOULD HAVE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THEM!!!!!    🙂  AS YOU DON’T LIVE THE SAME LIFESTYLES– OR HAVE ANYTHING IN COMMON WITH THEM!!! — AND PEOPLE NO LONGER JUDGE YOU BY BEING RELATED TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE!!!! WHEN PEOPLE USE TO SAY– “IS SHE RELATED TO YOU???” — I USE TO SAY  –“WHY DO YOU ASK” ????????????   🙂

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

  2. Happy Birthday to Gary! Thank you for sharing. I hope he had a wonderful day.

  3. Wonderful pictures!!!!! I enjoyed them very much. That is so sweet how “sweet on” your hubby you are, too!!!!! We honeymooned in Branson, MO almost 22 years ago. 🙂

    • THANK YOU—-THANK YOU— WE LOVE BRANSON— COME BACK TO BRANSON FOR A VISIT–YOU WON’T KNOW BRANSON IF IT HAS BEEN 22 YEARS SINCE YOU HAVE BEEN HERE!!!!!!!! 🙂 WE BOUGHT PROPERTY HERE IN THE EARLY 1980’S & WATCHED IT CHANCE & GROW–OVER THE YEARS– & WE HAVE SPENT TIME HERE EVERY YEAR– UNTIL WE MOVED HERE FULL TIME WHEN – WE RETIRED!!! WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

      • Oh, I would LOVE to come back to Branson!!!! Maybe someday when I’m not quite so sick from MCS. I lived in the St. Louis area and south of there for many years…. I think my two favorite places in the world are Missouri and South Dakota (where we live now). 🙂

      • WE LOVE BRANSON— WE SPENT MOST OF OUR LIVES IN KANSAS— & KANSAS IS NICE— BUT IT EVEN BETTER TO BE FROM THERE!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
