Paint it black.

I looked it up and discovered that one's 49th wedding anniversary is apparently celebrated by giving copper gifts.   I thought that was the seventh, which by my sums happened 42 years ago so I happily concluded I have dodged that particular bullet.  If you do a reverse look-up there's no mention of 49 in the copper stakes, so that's good enough for me.

It's a scary day, that day you cover perfectly good paint on your van with thick black goop, but if it sticks it will make the bit around the rear door more durable, and it certainly makes the white PVC look like something it's not.   I suspect that now is not a good time to discuss how well paint sticks to PVC either, but if it's half as good as the way it sticks to skin it will be fine.

Oh well, happy anniversary my love, they tell me that black is the new copper, so how lucky are we to be covered in the stuff!

Happy Anniversary to you both, I think of your wedding day with much delight. Eeek, next year is 50. How did we all get so old?
