63 Years Ago Today My Mom & Dad Got Married 6 Years After Hiroshima Got Atom Bombed
August 6, 1945 was the day America dropped an atom bomb on Hiroshima, which soon led to the end of the war.
Six years later, on August 6, 1951, 63 years ago, my Mom and Dad got married.
Which means today is my Mom and Dad's 63rd Wedding Anniversary.
This morning I text message Mom and Dad a "Good Morning and Happy Anniversary" text message.
Mom and Dad text messaged back saying "Thanks, we are going out for breakfast with J & J & J & J.
J & J & J & J are Jack and Jackie and Jake and Jill. My brother-in-law, sister, brother and sister-in-law.
Last night I tried to make a composite picture of my Mom and Dad and the atom bomb exploding over Hiroshima. That composite picture did not turn out too well, as you can see above. It sort of looks Mom and Dad are standing in front of a giant head of cauliflower.
UPDATE: Someone with the unusual name of Anonymous made the following comment regarding my Mom and Dad with The Bomb....
No, Durango, No! Mom and Dad with The Bomb? You always have tasteful and well done pics and graphics. Don't "Jump the Shark" on me!
Let us see your Peeps with a great period photo.
Well, really, I think I jumped the shark a long long time ago. But, just for Anonymous I've added the photo of Mom and Dad with The Bomb removed.
I wonder what color Mom's dress was. I could ask, but I doubt Mom would remember.
