Let me not to the marriage of true minds...

The Codebreakers are celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary this weekend. Mr C commented that even if he'd murdered someone, he would have been granted a reprieve after 30 years.

Anyway, I was looking for the symbol for the 54th, but anniversary lists seem to skip from Gold (50th) to Emerald (55th). You would think if you make it that far, every year should be a big deal.

I may need to make something up...

In other news, I put up a short story on the website, here. The Latte Angel is a glimpse of someone who makes a brief appearance in the final part of the trilogy. I was just pleased that I managed to write several pages where absolutely no-one died.

After extensive research I can confirm that the years 51-54 have no symbols. Which is a pity. My suggestions are:

51 - PVC
52 - mucus
53 - carmex
54 - jelly

So a strawberry trifle should just about do the trick!

Jelly??? Fifty-four bloody years and they get jelly at the end of it! And how would anyone even reach the jelly stage, considering the Mucus Anniversary two years earlier. Many will stumble at that hurdle.

Hmm, although they do love trifle, so there is some wisdom in what you say...

I opted for champagne, which I thought might work as the default symbol for any year. Or any day.

or any time of the day

Too true! Which makes it a kind of universal, sempiternal symbol. Who knew??
