Ahhh!!

I am happy to report that yesterday (1st November) Mrs P and I celebrated our fortieth wedding anniversary.(Ruby) In the case of Mrs P's many health problems; happily survived to see it.
I take the slightly unusual step of mentioning it here as nobody else family included remembered it.
Not bad for a second marriage that few thought would get past the first year.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Ahhh!!

@dvorak, well we tried, found a nice restaurant, upset the staff who had to arrange a table to accommodate Mrs P's wheelchair. Then sent back my steak (not something I eat a lot these days) as un-cuttable and useful only to attach to the soles of my shoes, Mrs P only picked at her extremely fatty lamb, but declined to let me complain as I had caused enough problems already, this did not endear us to the chef. But we were not charged for our sweets, and only paid for our starters and coffee's.
I think they were quite pleased to see us go.
But we chuckled about it afterwards.

Congratulations to you both. Quite a milestone in this throwaway society, where relationships are included in the throwaway.
Wonderful that you have some fond memories of your celebration. Worth narrating in later years. Smiley

Re: Ahhh!!

Yes, well done.
Sorry to hear about the meal, personally I never order Steak when eating out, previous experience has taught me that few restaurants seem to know how to cook Steak or else use poor quality meat.
I Have no problem cooking steak at home and there is nothing more annoying than paying for food which you could cook much better yourself.
