things that last


This month is our 38th wedding anniversary (yikes you say). When we got married we got some money and spent it on a set of salt and pepper shakers and a coffee grinder. The coffee grinder has been taken away by Bruce and I expect is still in good shake but the cork in the salt shaker fell apart and while we considered finding another, we thought maybe a new set was in order. Do you think it will last 38 years? I don't expect to be around to find out.....I will leave it for you to work out which is the old and which is the new.......

I think I can beat you on the pepper mill, we were given one, a wooden one with bands of either pewter or silver, I have never really looked, we have used that every day since we were married and we will have been married 48 years in February next year.Ndothing wrong with it and I have to say the odd plastic type ones all fell apart that I bought to take camping with us.Congratulations on your wedding anniversary!

I hope the wood ones are the new - I've never had a plastic set last more than 12 months!

And congrats on 38 years, eh? You've been married as long as I've been alive!

I'm sure you will enjoy another 38 years Dale. I hope I will too, so I can use all the stuff I have collected for my creativity! I may even need another 100 to do that.
