Congrats to you both on another year. Looking forward to seeing these pictures every June for many more years to come. And to seeing you both at Apollocon in a couple of weeks.

Congrats and best wishes to you both.

Janet Rudolph said...

Congratulations. Judy still looks the same

George said...

Judy looks beautiful and you made a bold fashion statement with those glasses. Congratulations and may you and Judy enjoy many more!

Bill Crider said...

George, I was influenced by Buddy Holly.

Janet, what's that "Judy still looks the same" crack supposed to mean?

See you there, Scott. Looking forward to it.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Steven. 44 years seems like a very short time.

Gerard Saylor said...

That was an impressive cake. Congratulations.

Todd Mason said...

In fact, isn't the 44th the cake in the road anniversary?

Congratulations! Many more.

Bill Crider said...

Hadn't thought of that, Todd. What a great day for those flash stories to appear.

Bill Crider said...

A friend of ours made that cake, Gerard. We're still friends, in fact, and we had dinner with her and her husband Monday night.

Max Allan Collins said...

Barb and I are newlyweds --41 years last Monday. We look up to you much older folks.

Bill Crider said...

Congrats to you whippersnappers, Al!

Wish I had used that for my story today. Congrats and you both look better every year.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Patti. I wish that were true!

Neil said...

All best wishes to you two. Happy to see a happy couple.

On June 23rd, B and I celebrate our 2nd. Looking forward to many many more, like you guys.

Hope to see you in a few more days.

Madonna Mia!

44 years!

All best to both of you.

The Principessa and I have been married so many times (7 between us) we now count in dog years and will be coming up on our 56th in January 2010.

Buona Fortuna!

Bill Crider said...

Charlie, that's a lotta times! And congrats on selling JOHNNY PORNO to Stark House. I'm looking forward to it.

Neil, two years is a good start. We hope to see you at MBTB on Monday.

Boy, did we all marry the right women.

We're hitting #37 in a couple of weeks, so I'm younger than either you or Collins. All our wives clearly married older men. Else how could they still look so good?

Nice to know that we all made smart choices at least once in our lives.

Bill, the Buddy Holly influence is obvious. And it's a great picture of Judy, as always.

Congratulations.

Steve, we're ahead of you as it will be #39 in October.

Bill & Judy showed us all the way.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Jeff. The glasses aren't quite like Buddy's, but they were the best I could find.

Ted said...

Judy hasn't aged a day and you, you look less . . . academic these days. Many, many more years together, kids!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Ted, I guess.

Bill Peschel said...

That's lovely to see. We started late in life, but we'll reach 16 this year. If I had told myself I'd get this far and be truly happy way back when, I would have thought myself insane (once I got over seeing myself with a grey 'stasche).

Congratulations!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Bill. If I had a 'stache, it would be white, as is my hair.
