Rochelle has gifted us a rerun today, so here’s my story from back in 2013!
Back then, I told Doug I’d save my extra 50 words allocation for another time. I guess this is me using them!

There you go. It only took 9 years to come back around to redeem your extra 50 words. It was a beautiful story then and it still is now.
Incidentally, my mother was a war bride. She wore a light blue afternoon dress and eventually dyed it black to make an attractive evening dress. One which I’ve worn on occasion. Glad you shared. I kind rewrote my rerun but it’s basically the same story. 😉
I hope you are well, Rochelle, and that the rerun isn’t a sign of a backslide on the health front. I love the story of your Mum’s dress – many of us certainly get very worked up about a dress we’ll wear once these days. Our ancestors were much more sensible and what a lovely feeling you must have when you wear it.
I assure you I’m quite well, but crazy busy the past couple of weeks on top of having been ill. I seem to have escaped the long term effects of COVID and am back to “normal.” I didn’t have the headspace this week to come up with something new. Although I did do a bit of edit-tweaking of the original story.
As for the dress, it’s a bit worn since it’s 80 years old.
Thank you for your concern. ❤
Glad to hear you’re better. You had me worried there! Nothing wrong with a rerun at all, whether it’s a dress or a story. 😉
Swee story, Jen
What a delightful story! A long and happy marriage is one of the greatest blessings there is.
Amen to that. They had their ups and downs, but they weathered them together.
A lovely story then and now,
Thank you Sandra.
A lovely story worthy of a rerun, I look forward to reading it again in 2031!
Haha, you’d better tell Rochelle to schedule the post!
I think I am back in the right place. Nice story and back-story, Jen. 🙂
They were obviously right for each other. And I’m glad they had such a long marriage. So many young people lost their partners in those war years.Lovely story.
