    Happy Double Nickel to ya both!

    It says something about each of you that you've been together so long, and still like where you are! My hat's off to you both.

    Keep showing us how it's done!

    Congratulations. You've been married longer than I've been living.

    edit - in fact, you got married a week after my parents. They just celebrated their 55th too. I turned 54 last October. Do the math.

    What is the secret to your success?
    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    You and Kay are simply great. Anyone who makes it to 55 is worth a tremendous thumbs up. My parents hit 56 in June, and they are my heroes. So are you and Kay. Congratulations.

    Our secrets to our long and happy marriage?

    We still hold hands . . .
    Tell each other, daily: "I love you!"
    I open the car door (or any other door) . . .
    After all this time, we still say 'please' and 'thank you' . . .
    Bring her flowers . . . although it may not be special occasion . . .
    Let's face, we both are just a couple of old and very happy romantics . . .
    Pedal on TWOgether!

    I have not been able to say this for a while... "I was not even born then!!"

    Congratulations to you both. Awesome effort. We have our 28th anniversary next weekend. We're only beginners

    I hate these teenage marriages- they never last.

    Well done.

    Congratulations. You folks are an inspiration, much as my parents are who will celebrate their 59th this summer.
    Sadly, I was unable to follow thier example. My first ended after 21 years. My new wife and I will have to live to 104 and 102 to reach the marker you have set.
    A goal to strive for.
