“And they lived happily ever after.”  I suppose the “lived happily ever after” ending is most often used after the prince marries the sweet young poor girl.  So I apply this to my life.  In 1953, my Prince married his sweet young poor girl – Me.  This reminds me of the man who said he and his wife just celebrated 15 years of happy marriage; however, he added the problem was that they had been married for 46 years!    My record beats that.  I think I am on the crest of some of the better marriages but to claim all these years were “happy ever after” would be a bit of over-speak.  I’m kicking June off on the light side since Father’s Day is coming up and I am planning to make some serious salutes to the men folks in my life, especially my husband.  (Note to self, do it.  Don’t get sidetracked, procrastinate, or otherwise neglect this exciting assignment.)

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Happily ever after is pure fairy tale, I think. But happily most of the time? That’s pretty good stuff, for any of us!

    One thing is sure, I’ve been happier with my prince than I would have been without him!
