Wandra, 69 & George, 82

(1/3) George: “We met through a friend. We’ve been married 19 years. My nephew dated her daughter at the time and they ended up getting married in 1996. We got married in 1998. So when you start talking about who’s the grandparent and the grandson and the grandfather and the great-grandfather, it gets confusing.”

Wandra: “I have a daughter and he has two daughters. Together we have 11 grandkids and four great-grandchildren. We are very active. We take a photography class together twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. That’s why we’re out here today. We do piano lessons and we’ve done computer classes. Our grandchildren look at us and when we tell them how old we are, they say you can’t be that old because you still do lots of things. We travel a lot. I was talking to our cruise advisor a week ago. We booked a cruise that’s going to leave Tampa, goes to Grand Cayman, Cartagena, the Panama Canal, and then to Costa Rica and back through Cozumel. It’s a ten-day cruise, and I was telling him—we cruise a lot on Carnival—‘we’ve run out of islands to go to!’ We’ve never been to Columbia, we’ve never been to Costa Rica. We have to start traveling by the ship now. We were coming here today and we passed Carnival Pride. We’ve been on the Pride at least five times. Once, all of us went, the whole family, 27 of us. It was so much fun. The kids were so excited because the older ones had more freedom than they usually get. By two days in, the middle ones, who were seven and eight years old, could get their own food by themselves. It was a wonderful, wonderful experience for the children and grandchildren.”
