Celebrate good times: Come on!

Join with us as we celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. What God put together, no man and no diagnosis has put asunder.

Mike said last summer, "Well, I know you really want to go to Alaska. If I'm still around next year, we'll go.

Pay up time, Pal!

We will be flying to Seattle and then boarding the Ms. Zaandam for an 8 day cruise to Alaska. Next Sunday, Mike will be scaling the face of the Mendenhall Glacier while his wife, um, I believe, will be 'descaling' in the ship's spa, if you know what I mean.

Mike visited with his doctor last Monday. She poked and prodded and pronounced him fit to travel.

You can follow our progress, perhaps here; I've read something about a one-time activation fee; I also saw something about 45 - 70 cents/minute. Not sure. If that's the game, I'll update you when we get back.

You know, our marriage was very good before Mike's diagnosis. We have grown even better in this partnership. God demonstrates, every day, why His plan is for life-long companions, to travel through this adventure together.

Our God shows us, every day, His blessings to us, big and small. And you, our friends, are among those blessings.


  1. Enjoy your trip, the weather up here (by up I mean just north of Anchorage) has been fantastic, almost 80 a couple days. I'm sure you two will have a wonderful time!

  2. What a handsome couple! I love the joy and satisfaction these two photos convey. Congratulations on your 36 years! Enjoy every moment and remember to take lots of pictures for the blog. This reader will be waiting with baited breath to hear all about the trip.

  3. I didn't know you were married to Kirk Douglas! Congratulations my dear. Enjoy your descaling at the spa!

  4. God's richest blessings to you dear ones as you celebrate this special event. He truly is holding both of you in the Hollow of His Mighty Hand!

  5. I'm so behind on reading your blog and probably won't comment everywhere, but needed to say Happy Anniversary and have a fantastic trip. I think you'll both LOVE it. I highly recommend a helicopter ride to a glacier, too. And a salmon bake. Mmmm. Can't wait to hear about the trip! Love you both (great picture, by the way)!
