I have a bbq stain on my white T-shirt… (Tim McGraw sung by Glenn Godfrey)
We had a great evening last night! It was our 20 year anniversary, and we had a nice dinner and even a movie, which for us is a rare occurrence; very rare if you count non-animated pictures. In fact, we spent midnight in the theatre, and we had the whole theatre to ourselves! it was actually a lot of fun, for two old fogies. Several of you know that I got us a surprise trip to Costa Rica as a present, I wasn’t able to keep it a secret from myself, as I am a trained investigator, but Tracy didn’t have a clue. Now she knows, and I think she is excited.
I have been playing with my new iphone all day looking at Costa Rica stuff so that we will be prepared. My mom will be watching the kids for 2 weeks while we are gone (Lord have mercy on her) so that is part of her gift to us. And finally, after 20 years, I was able to get Tra a new wedding ring. Why did she need a new ring? Well I was 20 when we got married and I did not have a lot of dough, and what dough I had was spent on eating out and movies. So her ring was low quality. I don’t want to say it was small, but she had to carry a 100X magnified picture with her so people could see the diamond. People thought it was a diamondless band. But at the time it didn’t matter, we did what we had to to make it work and it has worked great for 20 years and one day. I still truly don’t think it mattered to her, but I do know she deserved a lot more, so I was happy to oblige.
Today was January 1, 2009 and to celebrate, Tracy made one of my favorite foods, bbq ribs. I love baby backs, and she made a bunch of em. She has a great recipe and it is always a treat for me when they appear. Not a treat for my shirt, pants, or belly, but good for my soul for sure.
Here is to a fantastic New Year for all of us. I pray that you prosper spiritually, physically, and financially in the New Year. And keep on reading the blog and don’t be afraid to comment, we really enjoy the comments, good or bad. Let’s get out there and have a divine 2009!
