Congratulations to former US President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn on their 75th wedding anniversary.
It was three quarters of a century ago today that Carter, who is now 96, married his next door neighbour Rosalynn Smith, who is now 93, in their home town of Plains, Georgia.
Jimmy Carter is the longest married president in US history having surpassed that of George and Barbara Bush two years ago. He also the longest-living US president in history.
To mark the occasion, neighbour Jill Stucky says they will probably just sit and hold hands.
