That's right, Mark is 60 today. You can go here to see some really cute pictures of him growing up. Mark and I where born 47 days apart from each other and we were born in the same hospital in Illinois!

Look at these facts I found:

The total number of days between Monday, October 3rd, 2011 and Friday, November 18th, 2011 is 46 days.

This is equal to exactly 1 month and 15 days.

This does not include the end date, so it's accurate if you're measuring your age in days, or the total days between the start and end date. But if you want the duration of an event that includes both the starting date and the ending date, then it would actually be 47 days.

The total time span from 2011-10-03 to 2011-11-18 is 1,104 hours.

This is equivalent to 66,240 minutes.

You can also convert 46 days to 3,974,400 seconds.

Mark and I didn't meet until High School Freshman year. His parents were divorced when he was five. His mother remarried and moved out of state with him and his sister. As they grew older his sister wanted to go and live with her father. I guess the courts agreed so they both came back to Illinois to live with their dad. We hung with the same crowd. We dated for about three months our sophomore year but didn't get together again until graduation night. We didn't even go to prom together but I went with an actual gangsters son! (that's for another post)

We graduated HS in 1969 and married on June 24th 1972. As most of you know we divorced and separated after 11 years of marriage but remarried again on June 24th 1989.

If God had a plan for us to be together from the day we were born we certainly gave Him a run for His money! *hehe*

Fun post. Happy birthday Mark you are married to a real sweetie.

Hugs Debby!

Chatty Crone said...

I loved that story and information about you. What are the odds of all that? Born in the same hospital - and wow you are great in math. Then he moves out of town and back. You date - stop dating - marry - unmarry - and marry again. I think God wants you together. So happy for the two of you. Happy birthday to you 47 days ago and Happy birthday to Cowboy Mark! sandie

Lee said...

I love hearing how you got back together. I just heard about another couple that did that yesterday. God sure did have a plan bringing you guys together through everything.

otin said...

Mark can't be sixty. If you were only born 14 days apart, then judging by your appearance, I'd probably put him somewhere around thirty. :))

Happy birthday Mark!

Sarah (Nikki) said...

A huge happy B to Mark and what an amazing story of love you guys have. And I just read what Otin said and have to agree.

Laura said...

Aw! Happy Birthday Mark! I love seeing those pictures and can't wait to hear about that prom date!!!! ;-) So fun to be growing old with the one you were meant to grow old with! Where did you get all those fun facts???

Tonja said...

Lynn said...

Wem share the same anniversary. I may have told you this before but my sister, Barbie, my mom and step-dad, and my son and hid first wife, Leigh (who died) were all married on the 24th of June.
I can't wait for the gangster prom date story!
