The Desert Bar (revisited)

On Sunday afternoon several of us journeyed out to the "Desert Bar". Teddy and I had been there once before (see our blog of February 12, 2007) but not since. The occasion was to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of our friends, Pat & LaVerne Schumacher of Alden, Iowa. Some of us had gotten togather and suprised them with a mock renewal of vows. We had made up a wedding veil for Pat and a wide, wide tie for LaVerne, I had the music "Love and Marrage" on my notebook computer and our friend Gary Clark, from BC, Canada, acted as the priest complete with a paper collar. It was great fun and a lot of laughs.

Of course Teddy as is her wont, had to climb up to the top of the nearest peak to take a picture looking down on the rest of us.

It would have taken me about a month and a half and a stout rope to get up there. ;-)

Glad you are all warm and happy. We will be getting out in our camper the last of April and do some trout fishing.
