Today is Sonia Martin's 79th birthday. We have been friends since 1961 - 50 years! I wrote about Sonia last year here.
In October, 1956, Sonia Stromback married William R. (Bill) Martin. Here they are on their wedding day.
Bill was older than Sonia, and yet they were married for almost 49 years when Bill passed away in July, 2005. Here they are in 1957.
Now, Sonia's live-in companion is Owen, a rambunctious* Airedale that Sonia rescued a few years ago. (Rambunctious = turbulent)
I'll be thinking of you, Sonia, and sending love from Paris.
