Happy Anniversay to Me & Judy

Today we have been married for 42 years. Seems like a long time to you whippersnappers, I'm sure, but it went by so fast that I can hardly believe it.

The classic June bride. The happiest of days. Forty years for us this year.

Gerald So said...

Happy anniversary, Criders.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, all. Without Judy I would be nothing.

Patrick Shawn Bagley said...

42? Isn't that the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything? Anyway, happy anniversary.

Benjie said...

Happy, happy! Joy, joy! Keep up the good work, Criders.

Scott Cupp said...

Wishing you both the best on this special day.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, guys. And we've never had a fight!

42 years! I don't think anyone has been married to Judy longer. Congratulations to you on your good luck and to Judy on her patience.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Jerry. Judy's a saint.

Gerard said...

Congratulations. She's better looking than you as well.

Ray said...

Forty-two years. You've been married 12 years and one day longer than I've been alive, did you know that?

Wow. That is a long time. Well done. What's the secret?

Jeff Meyerson said...

Happy Anniversary, Criders.

Judy, you look pretty much the same.

Bill, that's some hairdo.

Hard Man said...

Congrats to you both. And remember, it's never too late to fight. I'm sure if you work at it, it'll come.

Duane Swierczynski said...

Criders, you're an inspiration to us all. Congrats!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, gang. Ray's clearly too young to be surfing adult sites like this one.

Bob Levinson said...

Hey, Bill...

The first 42 years are the hardest, so it should be clear sailing ahead, all thanks (of course) to Judy...

Bill Crider said...

Always thanks to Judy, Bob!

Lonnie Cruse said...

Congratulations Bill and Judy! Love the picture!

Lonnie/who will be celebrating 44 years of marriage with Don on June 15th!

Vince said...

42 years. Now the missus and I have a concrete number to aspire to.

Congratulations to you and Judy!

Jess Nevins said...

Congratulations!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, all. Lonnie's been married even longer than I have!

Juri said...

Congrats, Bill and Judy!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Juri!

Jayme Lynn Blaschke said...

Congrats! And really, what is it with all these June anniversaries, anyway?

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Jayme. There's just something about getting married in June, as you well know. And congrats on your 11th. Only 31 more to go and you'll catch up. Pretty scary thought, huh?

Frank Denton said...

Congratulations, Judy and Bill. 57 for Anna and me come August 12. How are you going to celebrate? Here's to many more.

Craig Zablo said...

Happy Anniversary! And here I thought 28 years was something to brag about!

Bill Crider said...

See, Craig? 57 is what you call an accomplishment.

No celebration, Frank. Just a quiet evening at home.

Todd Mason said...

I appreciate that both of you are wearing white. (This from a hypocr...er, man slightly older than the photo.)

Many more anniversaries! Thanks for letting us see that image. Your apparent mutual delight seems appropriate and sustained. Congratulations.

Bill Crider said...

We were young and dumb, which explains why we were so happy.

Karin M said...

Congratulations and many happy returns. I always like the way you talk about Judy in your posts. Inspirational. And I enjoyed meeting her in Toronto.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Karin. Inspirational is another good word for her.

James Reasoner said...

Congratulations to both of you. Every time I see one of these pictures, I'm amazed at how little Judy has changed.

Henry Melton said...

James has it right. I recognized Judy instantly, but who is that guy with her.

By the way Mary Ann and I are celebrating our anniversary today as well, but we only have 36 years.

Richard Heft said...

I feel obliged to point out that in 1965, the good folks at Gold Medal, in honor of your nuptials, reprinted DOUBLE IN TROUBLE, TEXAS FEVER, and WE TOO MUST LOVE. Their original publications for that year included NIGHT SLAVES, THE ART OF LOVE, THE BRANDED MAN, and NOT I, SAID THE VIXEN.

I hope you stay happily branded by your vixen for many more years to come.

Bill Crider said...

I agree with James, too, Henry. And as for me, well, I was that kid once and wish I was again.

Richard, Gold Medal did us proud.

Steve Lewis said...

Bill and Judy

Happy Anniversary! A day late, I know, but if you save this comment, maybe you can consider me the first good-wisher on your 43rd. (Judy and I will reach our 43rd in December.)

Best

Steve

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Steve, and happy anniversary 6 months early!

Cap'n Bob Napier said...

Sorry to be so late in posting my congratulations, Bill and Judy. Honestly, it's not because I was laughing at Bill's haircut and glasses. My server has been down since the first of the month. Anyway, may the lovely couple have many more years of bliss.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Cap'n. But I'll bet you WERE laughing.
