20 Years

Twenty years ago last night, Motor Man and I had our first date.  We celebrate the date every year.

The restaurant we ate at that night closed several years ago, the building has been demolished, and now a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop is located on that site.

So, last night, Marshall joined us at a nearby steakhouse where we enjoyed a nice dinner. Then we went to that Krispy Kreme. Just because.

When we went to the counter to order our doughnuts, the cashier asked me about our camera: “who’s the photographer?” I told her the story: 20 years ago was our first date, that night, we had eaten at a restaurant located there, and every year on that date, we return. And I brought the camera so we could get a picture.

She thought that was such a sweet story. A few minutes after we sat at our table, she walked over with two cups of coffee “on the house” and wished us a Happy Anniversary.

I donated my coffee to Marshall.

See the young lady (wearing the hat) in the background?  She’s the one who surprised us with the coffee.  Such a thoughtful gesture on her part.

Good company, good food and a surprise act of kindness made for a nice evening of celebrating 20 years.

Random Five Friday

It’s the eve of the weekend and time once again for five completely random thoughts:

1.) My friend, Donna, gave me a solar snowman-shaped bird feeder for Christmas.  I shared a photo recently of a squirrel helping himself to a meal of sunflower seeds.  Donna and I both had been disappointed that I hadn’t seen a single bird at the feeder. Then,  Wednesday morning, I noticed Sundae completely enamored at something outside the window. YAY!  A bird!


2.) Speaking of Sundae, I was clearing out an old SD camera card yesterday, and found this photo from February, 2012.  It had never been uploaded to the computer.  Sundae must have been in one of her silly  moods. Love her question-mark tail.

3.) Yes, I think many of us can identify with this.  I saw it on Facebook this week.

4.) Our local newspaper has a Facebook page, and a couple of days each week, they share (in the paper) comments left on some of their Facebook stories.  Poor Jo Ann; I don’t suppose she’s considered a broom for the job.

5.) And finally, Motor Man and I celebrated the 18th anniversary of our first date last week.  The restaurant that we went to that night has been demolished, and a Krispy Kreme built on that location.  So we celebrated there. Chocolate covered custard filled…..yum.

 Temps in the 60’s for the weekend will have us thinking about spring….
