A Golden Anniversary

April 23, 2017


My parent’s 50th wedding anniversary is today, so wish them well. We actually celebrated it over the weekend. They didn’t want anything elaborate, so we just did all of the things that we normally do when we get together. Over the course of the weekend we: talked, ate bacon, played cards, made sandwiches, ate sandwiches, played cards, watched the Cards, went out to eat, went to Zesto’s, played Settlers of Catan (don’t tell dad, we had to wait until he went to bed to play), quoted Paint Your Wagon, [note: we did not watch Paint Your Wagon or even have it playing while we didn’t watch it. This was the only way in which the weekend was disappointing.], played cards, gathered eggs, pet chickens.

You know, the usual stuff.

Happy Anniversary, mom and dad. We should do this again next year.

    Awesome family time together! Does your dad have a philosophical objection to Settlers of Catan, or does he just not like to play it?

      Mostly I think he sees it as time that could be spent playing Pinochle. NOTE: There was no way that I could think of spelling that offered enough clues to the spell checker that it could tell what word I meant.
