Because of the differences in language and translating, sometimes Heinz sends me something and I don't understand. However, this photo just has to be our cousin Heinz and his lovely wife Melitta on their wedding day in 1961. (I know this for sure cuz the photo was labeled ☺).
And that made 2011 their 50th wedding anniversary!
Here's the mayor of Heidenreichstein who dropped in to say "Wow!"
And here's Melitta holding 50 red carnations--to which we American relatives say
"WOW! and (belated) Congratulations!".
BTW, I'm especially grateful to Melitta for going along with Heinz to all those odd little villages we relatives are so eager to see. You're a good sport, Melitta ☺ Thank you both!
