Celebrating 50 Years; Earl and Renee 3 Aug 2012

Mr. & Mrs. Earl F. Petersen
Friday 3 Aug 1962

Truly, hard to believe that Earl and I have been married for fifty years; 3 Aug 2012

In 1962 the No. one song was
Roses are Red by Bobby Vinton.  
Another popular song;
 I can’t stop loving you by Ray Charles. 
No. one movie was; 
To Kill a Mocking Bird.  A favorite movie today!  Also the movie;
What ever happened to Baby Jane?   
No. one and two top TV Shows; 
The Virginian – The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.    
Popular songs and movies have changed in a BIG way.
What hasn't changed is that we have been there for each other and will continue on.
We will celebrate at a later date with our family by going on an Alaskan Cruise.   

Dad and me in 1977.

Vern W. Tomlinson & Renee Tomlinson Petersen
July 1977

 Dad is sporting a dark mustache but his sideburns are gray.  His hair is thinning on top.  Isn't that typical of men when they start loosing their hair they grow hair on their face? Dad never lost all his hair.  I can't remember if Mother approved of his new look or not but, I don't think he sported the mustache for long or the sideburns.  He will soon be sixty five years old when this picture was taken in 1977 on a visit with our family in Richland.  He has been enjoying his retirement for one year.  
    Dad died at the early age of seventy eight.  Today he would be ninety nine years old. Miss you Dad; think of you often.
