60 Years of Happiness

Good News Day. My grandparents are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary today, Feburary the 1st.

Gramps has done a lot in his life, and picked up speed post-retirement. He was the director of Aborigional Affairs in Victoria at some point in the distant past, and since then has worked for Prison Fellowship. Now he's just another retiree in a retirement village. They gave him an Order of Australia medal a few years ago for his work with Prision fellowship.

His first year at the retirement village, he wrote a Microsoft Access database for the village to use to manage the site. That was a few years ago. 1999. Since then he's moved into the Hostel, at the same village.

He still drives. 80+ and sharp enough to drive his old Mazda 929, which he keeps regularly serviced.

I don't think I remember meeting my Grandmother on my father's side, she died many years ago. My Grandfather on my father's side had a heart attack and died a few days after my wedding in 2001. I didn't go to the funeral because I was on my honeymoon at the time. He was taking his caravan on a tour around australia every second year at that point.

I'm looking forward to being old enough to blog about my great grandchildren.

On the internet we find many social software that we use in daily life and enjoy to contact our friends and family by using different apps. Writers like to use best paper writing services when they have articles in hand to post on different blogs.
