Chugging Forward Together

Tuesday at Marketplace of Ideas in Fargo Jasper Schneider, State Director of USDA, said, “It is an exciting time to be a North Dakotan”.  “We are self determined people.  We keep chugging forward.”  Yesterday at Jerry & Gladys Schnase’s 50th Anniversary party I realized that many of us are chugging forward with the same mate.  At the anniversary & this morning at the Senior Center brunch I took pictures of 13 couples.  They have been married a total of 581 years, or an average of 45 years.  That is a lot of togetherness!  Add to that a few that I missed getting pictures of this am-Barb & Jerry Helm-45 years, Sandy & Ron Cartwright-48 years & Vernon & I-53 years. 

But we also have younger couples & singles that give us a well rounded, stable community.
