OUR FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY DECEMBER 24, 1951 to DECEMBER 24, 2001 #1 Oh, what a time we had when we were wed! We chose a Valley chapel from afar, But could not know the snags that lay ahead; I had to come from Texas; you, Bryn Mawr. At 2 a.m, my buddy's car broke down Where nothing but the desert stretched away With hundreds of miles to any own, But then I hitched a ride that saved the day. But more was yet to come from bureaucrats And clumsy florist shops and closing banks, And charging rings from Bullocks' plutocrats, Then late to vows, then back to army ranks. But after fifty years as man and wife, We've proved the love we share was worth the strife.
