The Birthday Boy
George taught college for many years before going to work in the 'real world' (as he calls it) as an IT Computer Programmer/Systems Analyst. He retired in 2006 ---and has been extremely busy ever since doing all of the things in life he didn't have time to do when he was younger (photography, stamp collecting, converting old vinyl records to CD's, traveling, hiking, gardening, etc.).
George's first wife died from cancer in 1998. They had two beautiful children, Robert (who lives with his family in Florida) and Kelly (who lives with her husband in Buffalo, NY).
I was fortunate enough to meet this wonderful man in 2000 when we both moved to Hendersonville, Tennessee. I had been divorced for about 20 yrs. and never dreamed I would ever meet anyone else to be a part of my life... But---God truly brought us together and we fell in love immediately and got married on June 23, 2001.
That is when life BEGAN for ME.... Meeting and marrying George has been the greatest gift I have ever had in my entire life (in addition to having my three wonderful sons). Thanks to George Adams for coming into my life and bringing me so much happiness and love.
Today, as you can imagine, George and I are unavailable since we are out chasing down waterfalls!!! BUT--if you get a minute, go to his blog (click HERE) and wish him a Happy Birthday--since this will be his 70th!!!!! (Don't tell anyone --but I turn 70 also this year, in August... Yipes!!!)
Here are some pictures I took of George this past week --while we were in Arkansas.. The first picture above was taken on a hike we took in Petit Jean State Park to Cedar Falls on March 1. Be sure and enlarge all of the photos to see bigger pictures.
"Happy Birthday, Sweetheart.... Hope you have a wonderful day today!!!!" AND--thanks to all of you wonderful blog friends for wishing George a Happy 70th.... Click HERE.
Have a great weekend, and I'll see you on Monday.
