My description tells it all!

By olmeister6  
The back story here is that we were looking for our straw hats for our long-awaited return to France in August.
Originally, we booked to go to Italy for our 35th Anniversary but cancelled due to the covid complications and booked the France trip.
Not able to find these elusive hats we presumed they must have fallen behind the fitted wardrobes in the inaccessible corner they joined together. I climbed some steps and with a mirror and torch did my best to see if they had done just that, No not there but other items long lost!
I tried to extract the mysterious objects with our best vacuum but just as at the fairground the prize it got away.
Desperate measures now! I decided to cut a hole in the back panel to enable extraction of the long-lost treasures I peered through the hole using a mirror and a torch to try and view was down there, one of the items was a large carrier bag bearing the insignia BRIDE! I felt like Lord Caernarvon looking through the hole into Tutankhamun’s tomb and what was revealed was our wedding photo album and YES that special dress.
WOW she still can fit in it! PRECIOUS… the story will go on, God willing.

Did you not remember what happened in Narnia when they went inside the wardrobe.

Great image and story. The wife must have been really happy with the dress fitting and your wonderful image.

We had our 50th a few weeks back and one of the kids had a wedding picture blown up for the wall. All I do now is wonder who the guy in the picture is...
You can change a lot in 50 years and it's not just looks.
Great image and story.
