Having spent the early years of my marriage afloat on the briney with the Grey Funnel line and having missed numerous anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas dinners, kids school plays and events, I fully understand the commitment it takes to hold fast together through life's choppy waters. Congratulations on 60 years.

Yours Aye.

Thanks, Rob.

Out of that total, I spent 39 years actually on the briny.
It says it all that despite being separated for so long, my wife produced developed, trained and pushed-off into life, 2 very fine kids who have since blessed us with grand children and great grandchildren. As the old song laments: "Those days have gone now, And in the past, they will remain". I suspect Seamus knows the rest of that one/ ;)
