Today would have been our 007’s 60th wedding anniversary, and last night when we were putting his “Astronaut Pants” (adult diapers) on – We almost dropped him when we heard a CBS Evening news story about a couple celebrating their 60th Wedding anniversary in the same hotel and in the same room. (http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/couple-celebrates-60th-anniversary-at-the-waldorf-astoria/)
We were surprised by the news report because if Mom would have lived until now, we had been talking about having them celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary with a trip to where their 007 Movie Adventure started, Cuba and to the same hotel and same beach. They always dreamed of going back and getting into one of Havana’s perfectly preserved 1950s car and touring all of Cuba’s beautiful beaches with the friends and family they had not seen for over 50 years.
They missed it by 2 years, but the news report actually made us smile because we saw mom and dad’s 60th wedding anniversary dream become a reality thru the Couple in the news report.
Today, we asked our 007 what he was getting for Mom for their 60th Wedding Anniversary, and without missing a beat, he said “Diamonds, of course”, and then I remembered that one of their favorite 007 movies was “Diamonds are Forever”.
Now, we need to get our 007 into his super secret spy car disguised as a plain wheelchair to avoid detection.
