Tot anni, tanta gaudia!

How time does fly by.

We're down with the children, children-in-law, and grandchildren today, graciously helping them to celebrate our Golden Wedding.

What an astute move it was on my part, all those decades ago, to nab the cleverest and prettiest girl in Oxford!

The wedding was at 12.05, so that nobody could suspect it was an April Fools joke!

Congratulations, Father. While you found the cleverest girl in Oxford, I found her counterpart here in a small part of the states, known as Germantown. Congratulations, again, to both of you.

To the servants of God, the priest John and his wife, grant, O Lord, many years!

Многая літа, літа, многая літа,
Многая літа, літа, многая літа,
Во здравіє, во спасеніє
Сотвори, Господи, многая літа!

As nabbing goes, a hand well-played! A priest's wife is his making.
