A special day for a special person

Today is my wife's birthday. How I was lucky enough to find and marry her, I have no idea, but it is the smartest thing I ever did, and the best thing that ever happened to me.

I won't mention her age, because ...well, because it is not a very smart thing for a guy to do. Why so many women (and some guys) worry about such things, I have no idea. Personally, I think my wife looks younger than many women who are younger than her, but for some reason mentioning a woman's age is on par with telling some women what their "butt looks like in those pants". Men who break those rules are flirting with disaster.

We went out to a nice dinner Saturday night, and will be going out tonight also. Unfortunately, she had to go to work today, but hopefully she will be able to come home early.

Happy birthday, Sandy.

It sounds like you truly love her. I hope she has many, many more birthdays so that you'll have many, many more years to share that love.

We had no traffic problems getting into SLC. When we got to our destination; as we came up to the establishment a car was just leaving, so we parked right in front. There was no waiting, the service was good, and the food was good.
My wife had grilled salmon with wasabi aioli, rice, and sauteed vegetable. Along with an pale ale
I had an IPA to start, then a black and tan with my ribs, blue cornbread, and sauteed vegetables.
It was a nice evening.
