Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary and Happy Birthday Dad! Who would of thought 50 years ago you married in Winnipeg, honeymooned in Duluth MN, and now 50 years later you made it to Exotic St. Paul MN! For the next 50 Anniversaries and Birthdays here's a quote from Dr. Suess for you both-“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life's A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed)" Love from The Rybak Gang in Atlanta- because were the only ones listening to the show!
