Forty-nine years ago today, I got married in Philadelphia. The reception was held at Sunken Gardens, which disappeared soon after that after half a century of existence. The nice thing about SG was that they had an in-house band so you didn't have to hire one. Not a day has passed when I didn't thank my lucky stars that I married Phil.
Sorry not to have a pic of Phil and me but I can't put my hands on it right now. Thanks for 49 good years, Phil.
