10 Years Later….Another Summer of Love

1969 was a pivotal year for an entire generation and as you know, if you read my last post, the year my sister got married.

1979 also had its share of noteworthy news:

Mister Ed, the talking horse, died

The Susan B Anthony dollar was issued

It snowed in the Sahara Desert for 30 minutes

Michael Jackson released his first break through album “Off the Wall”

“For Better or Worse” comic strip debuted

McDonald’s introduced Happy Meals

And, in my family, it was another Summer of Love as we planned my September 7th wedding.

Happy 30th Anniversary, Dear Husband, it’s been a great ride.

Summer of Love

1969 --- What a year….

America elected Richard Nixon to become its 37th President and Dwight D. Eisenhower, our 35th President died.

Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon

Boeing 747 made its maiden flight

The Godfather was published

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was the hit movie

Sesame Street premiered on TV

The Beatles released Abbey Road and also gave their last public performance

John Lennon and Yoko Ono conducted their “Bed-In”

And Woodstock became the ultimate music festival

In my family, it truly was the Summer of Love…we were planning my sister’s September 5th wedding. I felt privileged that she asked me, her kid sister, to be her Maid of Honor.

Dear Sis and Brother-in-law, Happy 40th Anniversary.
