On August 18, 2018, exactly 50 years after Fred and I were married, we had a very rare and special anniversary. All of our kids and all of our grandkids but one came together to celebrate. We had a casual party that also included a few close, lifelong friends. There was only one gift I wanted. Pictures. Especially photos of all of our family together. My maternal grandfather used to say, from two people came many. Exactly how I felt. I come from a family that marked every special occasion with a family photo. This was the best gift ever.

*Per the John Shutkin rule, this qualifies as a RetroFlash, even though it includes a captioned photo and this footnote. I had to write something positive on this prompt so as not to be a Debbie Downer.
