Happy 50th Anniversary to Arnie and Jenny Schweitzer

Last weekend, Gord's sister Laurelle, his brother Bret and he held a tea honoring his parents' 50th wedding anniversary. I was sorry that I was unable to attend, but the photos look wonderful and I think that all their hard work paid off with a nice event. They also had extra special help from their cousin Martha and their aunt Lorraine.

The actual anniversary date is July 26. What an achievement - 50 years of marriage!

RE: Me - I am fine, the blood transfusion worked it's magic and I am breathing easier. Just recovering now from the chemo; it is my goal this week to actually go somewhere on an outing, maybe even just to Chapters. Have wheelchair, will travel. So far I really don't have the energy for it, but I am HOPING !!!

This last photo is of Gord and the kids with their grandparents, they all look beautiful, in my humble opinion!

Hi Joanne,
They do look great! Glad you are feeling better. Hope you have a nice time at Chapters...still no Chapters here, we wait patiently.

Lovely photos. 50 years, my goodness that's quite an occasion.
The family all look wonderful.

I'm glad you're feeling better, not much fun having to be at the hospital for that amount of time though. Hope you manage to get out and about.

Wow....50 years is impressive. Congratulations to the Schweitzers.

Glad to hear that the transfusion worked. Now is it chapters that you are interested in or perhaps the Starbucks that is attached to it? Take care and I hope that you can manage the outing.

Hello Joanne, Glad you are feeling better. Is there a Starbucks attached to Chapters? If so have a Venti Latte for me. Claire

Hey Joanne!
So glad you are feeling up to some free-wheeling! I have had fun reading your blog and getting to know more about your and yours. Not that I was not already highly impressed! You are an awesome survivor and a great inspiration. Hang in there. Best wishes to your weekend walk team. (I sent out a surprise to you via your niece Heather. :) Love to you from NJ, USA

Hello, Joanne,
Your humble opinion is completely right. They are beautiful, and what a wonderful occasion! So nice to hear you're feeling better after the transfusion - a reward for the long day. Thank you for your words of encouragement that morning. Enjoy Chapters, and all it has to offer.
