John and May Templeton, from Airtnoch Farm, Fenwick, pictured on their wedding day, at Belleisle House Hotel, on January 31, 1961 – which means they recently celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.

Their family have put together a little ditty that tells their story – but it seems they needed a wide running dog to put this together!

John and May Templeton married in '61

Then, along came their first son

Followed by their only daughter

(Boy, like her mum she turned out a talker)

Then, the next came along as two

And they decided that would do!

Collie dogs, John's life-long hobby

Which took them far and wide

As far as Arizona and Delaware

... But always side-by-side

But, home is the place they love to be

With family and friends they love to see

Sixty happy years, memories galore

Happy anniversary and many more.
