Many of you younger Cheffers may not remember Karl Malden, but he was a big part of my memories of growing up.

At least he lived to a nice old age! That's great to see.

A Streetcar Named Desire...
Pollyanna...
How the West Was Won...

Ah, the good old days when you could actually let your children watch TV!

For me he'll always bring to mind The Streets of San Fransisco and the American Express commercials.

I heard it mentioned that he and his wife were a rarity in modern Hollywood... they recently celebrated their 70th anniversary. That's a class act!

I'd just heard that too. What a great story they probably have to tell!

That is so awesome!!!! My husband's grandparents made it to 62 or 63 years of marriage. They died exactly 6 months apart. We think his grandpa died more of a broken heart than medical issues he had.

I got married too old to make 70 years of marriage but I would LOVE to reach 50 some day. Of course the lifespan on both DH's and my side of the family would lead us to believe we'll probably only reach 40 some years of marriage.

Us too, Janet. We'll be blessed if we have 40 yrs. I'd love to make it 50 - but that would put Rick at 90!

Wow - that means that this year, we are a 1/4 of the way into our marriage. How strange that seems!

We're blessed with quite a legacy of longevity in our families. Since The Furry Guy and I got married in our early 20s, we might actually have a shot. We'll hit the 1/4 century mark next year.

As Omar Bradley to George Patton...There's one big difference between you and me, George. I do this job because I've been trained to do it. You do it because you LOVE it.

My grandparents will celebrate 68 years of marriage in August - Grandma soon turns 88 and Grandpa just turned 91. I only hope I'm so lucky!

Do you have your 10th this year? My 10th is on 9-11.
