33 years together !!
« on: July 26, 2013, 04:44:19 PM »
 8)


Today is our anniversary !! July 26th 1980 , Ed and I met in a small bar in Clearwater, Florida !  And here we are, all these years later.  :)

Nothing really special is planned today, as I came off a graveyard shift last night, but we had a nice little lunch of Pizza, wings and salad, earlier.

Tomorrow, we are having a nice dinner at Harold Seltzer's steak house.  We both enjoy that, for an official celebration !

http://seltzerssteakhouse.com/menu/

Hard to believe 33 years ! We were both 29, when we met. Ed will be 62 in October and I will be 62 in December.

Ed filed for his social security the other day. Instead of going online to do it, he went directly to the Social security building. I will have to wait until mid September, before I can apply.  Hard to believe !  :) 

Life is wonderful, and I am fortunate to have him in my life !

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!  All the best for many happy and healthy years together. 

I almost hit post, before realizing my mistake.  I had HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  I think it was the birthday talk.  So, happy very early birthday, too.

Congratulations!   I would love to talk to you about your relationship.  I'm in one as well that I have committed myself to.  I need some help though.  Some advice on relationships.  If I could please have some of your wisdom that would be wonderful.  Thanks.

 We were both 29, when we met.

Ed corrected me !  :P  He said we were 28, when we met, soon to be 29.  Math has never been my subject ! ::)

Anyway,....Hey everyone,... Thanks for the anniversary well wishes.

We had a great day, ! started off in the morning with a much needed 2 mile fast walk.  We both needed that exercise. We've been getting lazy.

Got back home, and decided to take a swim in the community pool, to cool down.

And finally, we had an absolutely fantastic dinner.  Ed had prime rib, I had New york Strip.

I mentioned to the waiter that the ranch dressing on the salad was the best I ever tasted. He said they get complimented often on that.

Ha stated that they make it there, and asked if I wanted to buy a bottle. I said "of course"

So I have some fabulous ranch dressing for my meals at work during the week!  ;D


Thanks again----Ray  8)
