Friday Flashback: Twenty Years Now...

...whered they go?
Twenty years
I don't know
Sit and I wonder sometimes
Where they've gone...

-Bob Seger ("Like a Rock")


Twenty years ago this week, I asked Mrs. TBF to marry me. I made her promises of everlasting love and devotion. Somehow, I forgot to include the part about me quitting work in my 30s for the pursuit of "all about me".

This is our engagement portrait.

Twenty years...DAMN!

You had hair? I'm awestruck!

Happy Anniversary, 20 years is a major milestone!

Michael said...

Oh yeah...what were you both looking at?

TBF has hair and Mrs TBF looks like a filmstar from the 20's. Wonderful pic. Thank you for sharing! And have at least another 20 happy years...

Michael - I think we were watching my hair as it floated out the window...

Dixie said...

Look at your starry, love struck eyes!

This picture is the best!

The Sour Kraut said...

I totally agree with Tobias, the misses does look like a 1920's film star.

Happy engagement anniversary! When's the 20th wedding anniversary, next summer? Where will you be traveling in celebration of this milestone?

Here's to twenty more happy years!
BTW, as I approach the two-year mark I am curious as to how to actually make it to twenty without going to jail for assault or getting committed to an insane asylum, so if you ever want to blog marriage advice, I would be very interested, because it seems like you two still really like each other.

I have to believe Mrs TBF forced you to do this. She does look like a roaring 20s dame.

i think the picture sort of looks like someone taking a picture of you guys getting your photograph taken by someone another 35 degrees to the left :)

Not only do you have hair, but wearing a coat and tie also--surely it's someone else in the photo...

christina said...

Awesome! And it seems to me that you guys kind of still like each other. :-)

Here's to the next 20!
