    50th anniversary

    Mrs. Grouch and I drove to Des Moines to celebrate our anniversary. We hitched the Kett Train together and rode parts of the Raccoon River and the High Trestle Trails. It was a good time.

    Des Moines would be an excellent place to hold a 50+ social ride/assembly. There are more really nice concrete paved trails than we could sample in just a week end.

    You have both been through a LOT in the past several years, but with five decades behind you, it's little wonder you've been able to stick together.

    And the best part, is you're back riding together again on a tandem that keeps you safe and sound.

    Congrats.

    We're approaching our 35th. You guys must be really old! Or, got hitched a lot younger than us. WTG!
