I'm touched! Thank you all so much for your good wishes - they are more than welcome! Actually, 63 is just a number, which doesn't seem real to either one of us. But numbers do tell the story, and I guess they're accurate here.
A word to all of you lagging behind: It isn't (wasn't) all that difficult, as you will discover as time goes by, which it does very quickly when one has a lot of work to do!

Again, thanks to all of you!

Well done Werner and Charlotte (Evelyn), 63 years WOW! Veronica and I are only 24 years married and I feel that is something to be proud of, but 63 now that is really something. Congratulations, and I hope that you both are in good health and that you enjoy many more years of happiness together, bless you.

Thank you, everybody, thank you!

I don't know where John got the info from, but many thanks for starting the thread. And all of our friends - some of whom we've met in person, and the others we still hope to meet - Mel, you and your wife are well on the way, and of course we hope that Chalkie and Starr will share the next thirty-one (plus!) in good health - the same for Seàn and Veronica. And Teresa and Steve, we're still hoping you can make it up for the next CMG gettogether - whenever we can arrange one.

Lance, your good wishes come in such a handsome setting - but I don't know if another 63 is quite realistic. What's relevant here is that the art which has brought us together is sure to last and inspire us and our successors for sixty-three years and more.

Well, I have had the pleasure of being in the company of both, MR and MRS ISLER on several occasions and it is a joy to see such a happy couple ... both so intelligent and vibrant, and appreciative of all the good things of life. They are travelers, music lovers, readers, people who continue to work and contribute to so much to whatever is left of "well-being" in these United States. There should be many more folks like the Islers! The world would be a far better place! I have no reason to write these things other than to say they are true.

What's "A Day Late" in sixty-odd years?

What's really nice to know that we have so many fine friends on this site, with whom to share our enthusiasms for music, friendship, and each other.

Thank you so much, everyone, and our regards and warm wishes to each one of you!
Werner Isler
