Saturday Centus - April 30, "Happy Anniversary, Man"

Clocks: by Henry Van Dyke, "For those who love, time is eternity."

      Welcome to another charming installment of Saturday Centus!  This week Jenny has decided in honor of this being the first year celebration for Saturday Centus being "One year running this year......"  I'm sure you know where I'm going with this.......have you guessed already what her prompt for this week could be?  In case it hasn't come to you yet it's,

"Although the traditional gift for a first year anniversary is paper...."  and if you feel the urge to create one too just go here

     Their first kiss brought tears to their eyes; knowing it was losing her grandmother’s watch that brought them together. She was heartbroken until he, the ship’s Captain placed it in her hands. Once their eyes met, a sudden burst of emotion took them by surprise. Their next five years brought them many pleasures underneath the blissful skies of Algiers.
     A year ago today they took their eternal pledge plunging into life’s stickiness, and togetherness soothed away any turmoil.   Although the traditional gift for the first anniversary is paper,  their gift was kissing underneath this unique clockwork wearing each other’s handmade paper watches.

Remember if you want to play along to just go here

It's certainly moving, and good to see the watch used in this way.

Karen, this was so charming. I really loved the original direction you took this.

For some reason I kept thinking of the movie, Titanic, when I read this.

Very strange of my brain.

But very cool of you to write in this direction.
