First I want to thank all of you who’ve sent Patty and me your greetings and felicitations for this day. So many good wishes! They do mean a lot to us.
Second… Where the dickens are our crab cakes? They were supposed to be delivered today, but no sign of them yet.
For our 40th anniversary I wanted to buy us lobsters, so I went to the supermarket a few days beforehand and reserved two lobsters so that I could get them fresh on August 8. I went back on the appointed day to pick up our lobsters–and there weren’t any! Nope, no lobsters today, boyo–sorry! Wit you well I was highly cheesed off. After all, you only get one 40th wedding anniversary. I wanted it to be a special occasion. Well, it was, of course–but without the lobsters.
I also ordered a gift for Patty last week, and that’s not here, either.
Today’s our 42nd anniversary, and I’m wearing one of the T-shirts I bought on that first trip to Maryland, our elopement. It’s just like the one in the picture, although of course it’s 42 years old and I have to be careful with it.
Our low-key festivities today will feature a monster movie, rented by Patty yesterday, and really nice crab cakes for supper–and “really nice” is an understatement.
We crave tranquility today, so you won’t find me spending much time on the nooze. I want to take a bike ride before it gets too hot, and maybe post one more thing up here this morning–and so I’ll see you all a little later on. 🙂
