Today, 8/23, Susie and I celebrate 40 years together. The day started by going to the YMCA, mowing the yard, and running the SD45 coal train. We will eat lunch with daughter, son-in-law and grandkids, and go to dinner theater this evening.
Susie is the best thing that ever happened to me. [even though she is only luke-warm on trains].

Then:

Congratulations Jim & Susie on your 40 years together! Doesn't really seem that long does it?

Helen and I will be married 40 years in October so we're right behind you! We'll have to all get together to celebrate our 50th by taking a train ride (sure to excite our partners) ;)! :)

Congratulations to you both! The photos are amazing. How is it that Suzie didn't age at all while you did? Was it 40 years of being married to a RR nut or did you marry a child bride?:D
Couldn't have been the former since my exwife was married to a RR nut (well, anyway a nut) and our marriage only last one fifth the length of yours.

To All,
Thanks for the kind and wonderful comments, well wishes, and... jabs..... Yes, I have aged much more than Susie. She is even a few days older than I am [Shhhh.].
If you are interested in seeing the announcement that was in the newspaper, along with an extended profile/pictures, that are online with the Wichita Eagle newspaper, go to:

The day went perfectly. The weather was hot, but not oppressive, trains ran well, Wichita Botanic Gardens were beautiful, Grandkids were happy, Shrimp Lunch was good, and the Crown Uptown dinner playhouse was very funny.
Again, thanks for the supportive comments. Our next goal is 50 years.
Susie and Jim Carter
