When we got married we had little if any money, but I knew that the military would be a huge part of our life together. Little did I know at the time, just how big the travel part would be!
Joe missed our first wedding anniversary - Anne I hope you & Derek can celebrate together! Joe was sailing on the HMCS Athabascan towards parts unknown. At that time, we only had a recording on Ships' movements to let us know what was what. The evening of our anniversary, I got a telegram and if that doesn't stop your heart, nothing will. It wasn't bad news, just a quick note from Joe (on his way to Russia) saying he was thinking of me. Stop.
Anyways, the travels continued - England, Norway, Denmark, Africa, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bermuda, Japan, Hawaii and a few other destinations.
Back to the suitcase. We were cleaning out our cold room and we came across the case and we ALMOST got rid of it. That isn't our marriage, but why can't I let it go? It's a bit on the small size by today's standards...I guess I'll slip it back into the cold room for another day.
