Words of Wisdom. Family and friends celebrating this couple over the weekend.

The couple: D.W. Williams (age 103) and Willie Williams (age 100) celebrating 82 years of marriage in April. The Williams’ were asked the obvious question:

What are the keys to a successful marriage…  Their response was simple.

Trust and communication are some of the things they say it takes to keep a healthy, long lasting marriage. And being best friends.

“I don’t have no secret for that, just be nice to each other,” D.W. and Miss Willie said.

Their family threw the couple a party at First Mayfield Memorial Baptist in north Charlotte on Sunday.     https ://myfox8.com/2019/04/07/north-carolina-couple-married-82-years-shares-secrets-to-lasting-marriage/

The today’s marketing slogan (April 8)

“The Quicker Picker Upper”  Bounty

NOTE: Bounty “The Quicker Picker Upper!” came about through the acquisition of Charmin by Proctor & Gamble in 1957. Bounty replaced Charmin paper towels in 1965.  Only a handful of TV commercials become part of pop culture.

Bounty paper towels advertised themselves as absorbent “quicker picker upper.” Remember ‘Rosie the Waitress’?

From 1970 through 1990, TV commercials featured Bounty’s spokesperson Rosie the Waitress, played by actress Nancy Walker of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda fame. The recurring role became such a regular part of daily television, ‘Rosie’ or Nancy Walker was named by AdvertisingAge magazine as one of the “Top 10 Female Ad Icons of All Time.”  https://www.doitbest.com/pages/bounty
