At about the age of 11 (I think) or so she met a boy. In high school her and this boy started dating because, in her words, all her friends were dating and they thought they should too.

The wedding was a small simple church wedding. My mom said she didn't even really want a wedding. She wore her hair down and so did he. It was 1973 of course he has long hair.

She came to meet the newest granddaughter, Sam. My eldest brothers first baby. Along with her she brought me the Pyrex she got at her wedding on February 17th, 1973. 40 years it would have been today. One bowl is missing. I never knew she has these. She cannot remember who gave them to her, my guess is my Great Aunt Margie. She is the "Crazy Aunt."

They have a permanent place on my table right now. I got the rooster cloth a few years ago (maybe 6) what a small antique mall in Torrance, CA. I knew some day I would have a great use for it. The colors compliment perfectly.
She originally wanted to trade me for my primary set. I was okay with that. The friendship means more to me. But she fell in love with some Corning here and I bought her that and traded her.
|My mom loves Spice of Life Corning. I found these for less than $20 for her.|
I still traded the primary, but not for more pyrex. I will show you later what I traded those for, it is currently at the cleaners. I think trading that primary set game me some good Karma.
So even though my parents are no longer married, and one is not with us today. Happy 40 Years. 40 years of love, heart break, kids, death and the most important being a family, through thick and thin.
I love you mom, thanks for the Pyrex.
