December 15, 1963


Forty-five years ago, two movie-star-attractive people threw a wedding and invited everyone they knew. I wasn't there, but that's understandable because I hadn't met them yet. But someday when I get my time machine, I plan to show up and introduce myself.

Anyway, being married was a new concept for both of them back then, and now they're about as skilled at it as two people can get. The only mistake they've ever made was getting rid of that Thunderbird.
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! I love you!

Great post - and what a cool photo. My dad used to have a '65 candy apple red T-Bird. Growing up, my brothers and I thought it was such a piece of $%#^. What did we know?!?

WOW, lovely photo, amazing how one little picture can emote some much, thanks for sharing Kevin. Hey Dave, my dad had pastle blue '57 Tbird and it used to overheat a lot so in 1971 my dad traded it for a Morris-Minor, nice going dad, even at 6 I knew that was a mistake!

You sure that's not a publicity still for the upcoming season of Mad Men?

Hey Kevin, when you get your time machine you should go back and convince your parents not to sell the Thunderbird and if they still insist on doing so, you should offer to buy it from them. You also might encourage them to give you a good price because you will be making the purchase with THEIR MONEY which you will have borrow from them in January of 1985, which will have been your previous time stop.

If they give you any resistence (in 1985) to loaning you the money, just explain that you are their son from the future and need $300 to right a tremendous wrong and I'm sure they won't call the police on you.

p.s.- I hope your time machine is big enough to fit the the Thunderbird in it. If not, then this plan is crap.
