Photo: JASON OXENHAM Happy anniversary: Mr and Mrs Shears on their wedding day, November 25, 1950. By CARLY TAWHIAO The busiest people do have the most time, if Bill and Royce Shears are anything to go by. The Mt Albert couple are celebrating their 60th wed- ding anniversary tomorrow by having a family dinner with their three children, Tony, Graham and Kay, eight grandchildren and one great- grandchild, with another one on the way. Mrs Shears says although the marriage milestone will be a lot more subdued com- pared to their golden jubilee, they are happy to reflect on a life lived to the fullest. We've lost a lot of friends and family since then. It's important to enjoy each day.'' Mrs Shears was a nurse at Thames Hospital in 1948 when Mr Shears admitted himself as a patient after a farming accident. Not one to wait around for an ambulance, he drove him- self to the hospital and quickly became the talk of the town because of his car. All the nurses were agog wondering who the Roadster Model A parked outside belonged to. It was very smart,'' Mrs Shears says. Then one night she was invited by her friend to go to a dance with a group of people and one of them turned out to be the owner of the car -- her future husband. Our courtship was danc- ing,'' Mr Shears says. There were local bands and the Puru cabaret dance on a Saturday night with Bill Sevesi when he was a young lad. We've had a great life.'' The pair got married in 1950 and settled down in Browns Bay but by 1955 they had their own bus service in Avondale called Shears Coa- chlines. They sold the business in 1967 and went on to do many helpful things in their respective fields of nursing and motoring. When it comes to com- munity involvement, they say they don't know where to start or when it will end. From Plunket committees to Rotary and Probus groups, volunteering at Starship hos- pital and Motat -- We haven't got time to grow old, but I'm 85 now so I might slow down as I get older,'' Mr Shears says. The vintage car restorer says they keep their marriage thriving by keeping busy. Older couples get into trouble when they're bored but we haven't got time to have arguments.'' His wife however says it's because opposites attract. We're completely different, we even listen to different radio stations but we're there for each other.''
