You Know You're Getting Old When...

"I was going to call last night, as it occurred to me that somebody had an anniversary; unfortunately, I discovered earlier that day that eating leftovers from TGI Fridays, five days after you ordered the meal, is not the greatest idea ever. Nothing too bad, but I wound up napping right through prime calling time. So I apologize, I'm the worst son ever."

That was the beginning of the e-mail we received from Darb today. Huh? Oh crap! Yesterday was our anniversary!!! 21 years (24 if you count the 3 years we practiced first). And Denny and I both forgot it. (See the embarassed grins on our faces). So thanks to the Token Liberal's reminder, we're going to the Oakwood Club for dinner tonight, which is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. It's the place my parents took each of us kids individually as teenagers to teach us how to appreciate a classy restaurant where folks used salad forks and fish forks and linen napkins, how to order and tip, and how to behave like a mature person while enjoying a great meal. For that occasion we were allowed to order the steak and lobster tail (the surf and turf)-heavenly! Funny how things stick in your mind.

So thanks, sweetie, for reminding us about our anniversary and don't worry about that phone call--we know your love is year-round just like our marriage, so missing a one-day occasion doesn't matter. <3, The Token Mom

Just found your blog, and reading about your travels with interest. Currently waiting for the house to sell so we can be full timers.

2 retired p o's in our household living off the OP&F for the last 2-1/2 years. Got out of Ohio as soon as we retired and are very happy down south. Will never live in Ohio again, its too cold. The kids prefer to come see us and go to the beach.

Safe travels, see ya on the road someday.
