Big Ups to the Patriarch and Matriarch

They'll tell me I'm being silly, but I'd be remiss if I didn't publicly say happy birthday to the elder Mrs. B (my mother) and happy anniversary to she and the elder Mr. B (my pops).

Today marks my mom's 39th birthday on the Jack Benny calendar (if you're over 50 or a geek like me you'll get that joke; if not, follow this link for an explanation). Today also marks my folks' 37th year of wedded bliss.

Congrats, mom and dad, and thank you for the good example all these years!

  • Tell your Mom if it weren't for the fact you said how many years they've been married, she could pass for a 39-year-old,easily! That is fantastic that they have held together for 37 years -especially considering how high the divorce rate is and has been for sometime now. Big congratulations to both your parents on the anniversary and a very happy birthday to your Mom as well!

  • Dang, your dad was a cradle-robber. Or, it could be that one of the guys son's is rtesponsible for all his graying hair?

    One way or the nother, congrats to them both, and to you, for recogizing their acheivement.

  • It's great JB that you have parents that you can love and honor.

    It's also great that you love and honor them.

    I wish them another 37 years of marital bliss.

  • Happy anniversary to Mater-and-Pater-of-James!

    Many blessings on this glorious occasion, and a most happy birthday to your mom. Does she play the violin, too?

  • They obviously know how to raise kids properly. Best wishes to them from someone who has been married for 34 years.
