Mr. & Mrs. Piper Add Another Year - Happy 44th Anniversary!

The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they're right if you love to be with them all the time.  ~ Julia Child
 
I'd like to give a big shout out to mom and dad, a.k.a. Gigi and pappy.  Today marks their forty-fourth wedding anniversary!  They were married in 1969 at Sacred Heart Church in Youngstown, Pennsylvania.

Besides my parents getting married, which six years later became my birthday, what else was going on in 1969?  According to Google, Wikipedia and all other "reliable" internet sources, 1969 was a full year.

Yes, on the exact same day only six years later on December 12th, in 1975 I was born.  I guess it's no surprise that I really enjoy winter and the snow, after all I came into this world with that as my backdrop.  At this point mom and dad moved back to the United States after living in Germany for two years while dad was in the Army.  They lived in the same house that my grandpap Chester built, the same one they live in, to this very day.  What else was going on in 1975?
