A Diamond Jubillee

Sixty years ago, Marcel married Colette, and last weekend they celebrated again in the Hotel de Ville of Saint Valerien just outside Sens.

Angie, Marcel, Colette and Honie

After the ceremony (reported in the newspaper)

Clipping from Yonne Journal 22nd April 2013

we continued the celebration in this restaurant with a very fine meal

Restaurant somewhere in rural France

and afterwards, celebrated with yet more with champagne, cakes and macaroons arranged in a '60' (made by Hodmandod Major and Majorette) 

The macaroons...

and even some fireworks!

And fireworks.
I would like more days like this.  

Congratulations to Marcel and Colette and congratulations to  Hodmandod Majorette for organising such a great and memorable day.  It must have been a lot of work - but a big success!
