On October 18th, 1969 at 6:30 pm - 40 years ago - Pep Patek and I got married. His real name is Harry but his friends have always called him Pep. He is now and has always been my great, best friend. Not that we haven't had a rough time or two along the way but we've always been able to maintain our commitment to each other and to our marriage. We were very lucky. (He says this isn't a good picture of him - he wasn't smiling. Life with him has always been interesting.)

Quite a few people got the year right so we had a drawing.

Here is Zoie with her great, best friend, Afentra the Guinea Pig. She drew the angel on the door. You can look for it in a quilt some day. And she drew Alda's name from the Halloween bowl.

Alda, if you'll email Tara at, she'll send you a Blessings Jelly Roll.
I almost hate for it to be over because it's so much fun to read all of the comments.
Thanks to all of you for your guesses and your congratulations.


  1. "Interesting" is good - good for 40 YEARS - congrats to you both.

  2. Happy Anniversary and Congratulations to Alda.

    And congrats to 40 years. Marriage is not always easy but somehow we stick with the commitment we made. Now some couples just find it so easy to divorce.
