Love on a Hot Afternoon

You Take One Boy
And One  Girl



One hot afternoon in June



And this is what you get....
And one's on the way!


James Peter Crutchfield, Jr.


He was one wild child!
Now he's an electrician for CSX Railroad in New Orleans.


My little redhead Marshall Wayne Crutchfield.


Buck and Marshall
Marshall works for the Episcopal Embassy in New York City.


Joseph Buck Crutchfield
(Born on the first day of deer season)


He teaches school now in Cambodia.


Jeremy Jackson Crutchfield
(Named for his great-granddad, Andrew Jackson Crutchfield)


And now he's a Supervisor for CSX Railroad like his dad in Mobile.


My little family has all grown up.

Tomorrow, June 10 we celebrate 40 years of Wedded Bliss.

It's been nip and tuck all the way, let me tell you!
But I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now..


Pardon me while I go cry now...

Love, from me and little Wilma

Thanks, Shirley,
It makes you wonder where all those years went to so fast. I wish I had known then how fast time was flying by and just how precious life is.
When you are young, you think everyone lives forever...
