Good News Day

Tuesday just after noon, Sylvia took me to the podiatrist.  (I still am not allowed to drive.)  They took X-rays of my foot and it looks good and seems to be doing well.  I was able to trade the heavy boot for a light-weight surgical shoe.  As the doctor said, it’s not as comfortable as the boot, but it’s easier to deal with.

After that, we stopped at the steak house and had a nice lunch.  I’d call it dinner.  Grilled prime rib is not on our normal luncheon menu.  That was in celebration of our wedding anniversary, which is today.

That evening, a friend dropped in for an overnight visit.  We always look forward to seeing Sharkey.

This morning started with breakfast with Sharkey.  Then she was on her way east to be with friends.  Later we’ll travel to be with Sylvia’s family as we celebrate her dad’s 98th birthday.

Today is our special day as we celebrate another year of togetherness.


Happy anniversary my love.  I’m looking forward to many more years together with you.

  1. Happy Anniversary! Sounds like you had a wonderful day–good food, friendship, news from the doctor, a snappy new shoe, AND being with your best gal. Don’t get better than that!

    • Thanks, Lin. You nailed it. Although you did leave out breakfast with our friend, Sharkey. Wish you could have been here too.

  2. Don’t let this go to your head but the man and woman in that last picture are stunningly beautiful people. And the picture is great, too.

    • The woman certainly is. We were in a Puerto Rican wedding. The gals had done Sylvia’s hair at the church. (She wouldn’t normally do it up that nice.) I think that the bride was a bit miffed that Sylvia received so much attention.
