Two Reasons to Celebrate

Thirty-Eight and Twenty-Eight

Reason one was that it was our thirty-eighth anniversary; reason two was that it was Smudge's fourth weekaversary. We've all changed a lot in our own time frames. Cuppa and I look a lot different (see her blog later for older photos), and Smudge has changed greatly. She begins to be much more aware of her surroundings. She looks into our eyes and tracks our movements to some degree. The poor wee one is not having good days lately, however, with her tummy problems.

Cuppa and I celebrated the day in typically understated fashion. Aside from two visits with Smudge, we went went into town, picked up a few items, saw a movie, and had pizza for supper. Living the high life, eh?

That's what we do on every anniversary — get a pizza. We ordered one into our hotel room in Stratford on our wedding night and have followed the tradition every year since. Unfortunately, we didn't follow it well enough last last. We decided to get a little wild and order a Thai Chicken pizza. Let's just say that people with stomachs more delicate than cast iron shouldn't do that.

However, it sat within us well enough through the film, Georgia Rule. Reviews weren't terribly wonderful, but we decided to try it anyway, and we both quite liked it. It's a chick flick, I guess, but I like most chick flicks — better than car chases and wanton mayhem anyway.

Great photo! Hopefully Smudge will always live nearby. Happy Anniversary also, the pizza is a good tradition. I gather from the name that it was on the spicy side - hope your stomach recovers. ec

A lovely photo and may you both have many more happy anniversaries- maybe without the thai chicken !!

Congratulations to you and Cuppa. I laughed at your pizza story. These aging stomachs demand respect.
The picture is wonderful. The love and tenderness is heart-warming.

It's so nice to see such a happy and well-adjusted family. Because of the AA thing I seem to be surrounded by dysfunctional people and relationships. I love to see them change and grow and to get the "love of life" back in their eyes but it's still nice to see an "ordinary" happily married twosome. Congratulatons and many, many more years to come.

Oh, what a beautiful photo! I know I say that a lot, in fact to the point of redundancy.. but doggone it, I really mean it!

Happy anniversary to both of you. What I know of both of you through your blogs makes certain it doesn't surprise me that you've made it this long. :)


Peace,

You two continue to be an inspiration to me. Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations! 38 years is quite an accomplishment, I'd say! I dare you to take a risk for #39 and order in Chinese.

Congratulations all around.. to Cuppa, yourself and sweet little smudge.

My sister was just saying how she too enjoyed the movie,Georgia Rules. Now, with this double endorsement, I will certainly have to check it out myself.
