Mystic's Theme - "Sounds of Music with My Valentine"

by Brenda Nelson February. 15, 2012 4119 views

Hey - why not? This is still current for today's Mystic Theme, too - from “Music” yesterday to “Sounds of Music” today!

Others who may be posting for Mystic's Theme can be found here [photoblog.com]!

This is part of a re-post from our anniversary last year. Larry and I met in a college ensemble and have been “Making Music” ever since! In fact, on our first date, he sang Herb Alpert's “This Guy's In Love With You” [youtube.com] to me and won my heart! So here are 14 shots of us singing together from the past 43 years.

Our college group, the Uarkettes, who sang all over the US and into Mexico (can you find us? lower left and mid-row right)

Loved that mustache!

Beatnik night

These are photos of old photos, so they lose some of their clarity, but this was the opening day of our new church!

We dressed a blow-up doll and taped him between us for a Peter, Paul and Mary tribute!

An evening of country music

Our church's Christmas cantata

A deaf girl drew this of us - she couldn't hear the music, but she could feel the beat of the guitar through the floor!

haha!! Loved this Brenda and Larry. I bet nobody favored that #2, but I am!! I come from that era, but did not have the leisure suit look. I did have the silk shirts with the crazy patterns!

I can see where the Captain and Tenille got their inspiration!! Fantastic post!

Oh gosh! The mustache & overalls...so glad y'all are normal now! :)
I have such great memories of traveling with y'all to all the revivals and tape recordings growing up.
It was neat then, and it's especially neat to see both of you together for so long loving the Lord and each other.
Thanks for setting a great example of marriage and love for your children.
