Anniversary

My parents recently had their 30th anniversary. Since I am dirt poor, I decided an appropriate gift this year would be something creative. I decided they’d like that more anyway, like when you make an ashtray for them in kindergarten (so what if they don’t smoke?)

Anyway, they did love it. We sent out a letter to their friends and family and asked for people to submit sentimental expressions directed at them and their marriage. We got something like thirty letters from nearly as many families. It was quite the outpouring of love and compliments! Both Amanda and I were really touched as we gathered the letters and as (she) put them into a nice scrapbook.
And mom and dad loved it. My mom was all tears, a sure sign of success.
