Going through some stuff in our storage room, actually called a garage, I came across a pleasant reminder of my marriage to my wonderful wife. It’s an anniversary card my wife customized on our third anniversary. Well specifically our 3 and 1/12th anniversary.
My wife added 5-oclock shadow and bathroom stuff in the top part and “noise” in the bottom part reflects the noise made by some parakeets we had at the time. Noisy little suckers.
The “fight” in the bottom part of the page above is an in-joke. We were jokingly arguing if we were going to get a microwave oven or a parrot with the birthday money we got from our parents. We didn’t get either (already had a microwave oven my maternal grandparents gave us and a parrot was never in the plans anyway — we already had too many parakeets).
The top part of this page needs some explanation. Borelli’s was an Italian restaurant in Gulfport, Mississippi that had wonderful food but it was mostly cream based stuff and very, very rich. So rich that it made both of us miserable when we got back to our inlaws’ house. We never ate there again.
This was a pleasant surprise to find this old anniversary card. I showed it to my wife and it made us both smile. Again. I’m a hopeless romantic and this sort of thing really remains in my heart. We’ve now been married over 22 years now and I love her as much if not more than I did back then.
