Funny or Embarassing

I will post some pics tomorrow, but for today I thought I would share a funny/embarassing story with you.

Today is my Sister's Wedding Anniversary. As far back as last September my Niece, her Daughter, asked me if I would make invitations to a Silver Anniversary party. Eventually she said the party was not going ahead as she was short of funds. However, as it was a special event I set to at the weekend to make the card that had been in my head for a week or so. I needed a picture of their wedding day to complete the card so I set off on a search for one. I had a copy of a really nice one in a family montage in a frame and thought I could find the original and make another copy. So off I set. I went to April 1984 in my photo albums to locate this picture but there were no pics there. I remembered that some time back I had rejigged the albums and thought perhaps I had misfiled the pics. So I flicked through and through and eventually I came across some pics but they seemed to be filed in 1985. Then I realised that my 25 year old Daughter, whose birthday is in January was walking in these pics and picking up and throwing confetti around which would have been impossible at 3 1/2 months old, and it dawned on me........... they have only been married TWENTY FOUR years!!

I telephoned my Sister gingerly and told her what I had worked out and she told me that she thought all along they had only been married 24 years but that my Niece had persuaded her they had their dates wrong. Thank goodness she didn't go ahead with that party!
