Good weekend

Long time readers may remember that this is our wedding annniversary. It is, in fact, our fifth anniversary. I will leave it to you to Google what you get on your fifth anniversary.

G’night, folks!

I don’t have to google, from the post’s context I can ascertain that the 5th is the tongue-bath anniversary.

Happy anniversary, Sweasel and Uncle B! Only 45 years to the one that nets you the really great loot!

Married on Valentine’s Day. That’s really asking for it. And you get it: best wishes for years of happy companionship from this old bachelor.

That’s the Vodka and Sushi anniversary, IIRC. Although, I think Pupster’s would be a close second. Congrats!

Need some music on this website …. I know!

I can assure you that the 5th anniversary is the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie anniversary. Every anniversary is the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie anniversary.

And any other day cookies would work pretty well, although bacon does sound rather tempting.

Factoid for future reference – The 35th anniversary is the Jade or Coral Anniversary. And I happened to be in Beijing when that was looming, just about the jade and coral HQ of the known universe. Which to chose? Well, both of course. That cost me a fortune.

The 40th is even worse, being the Ruby Anniversary. First, just try and find a decent ruby. A lot of top line jewelers don’t even sell them, since most of them come from Myanmar these days and they’re embargoed. If you do find one, be prepared for sticker shock. Diamonds are cheaper.

Oh, god, Oceania — we were just talking about Wing a couple of days ago! Awesome to know that, for less than twenty bucks, you can get Wing to dial up and sing to you (or a person of your choice) over the phone.

Ah, Wing… Satan’s answer to St. Cecilia.

Yes, she is a fragile little flower.

Married on Valentine’s Day. That’s really asking for it.

Not at all, that’s just like having a relative who was born on Christmas. “Hey! Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday — ta da!” as you present one present for both occasions. Ta da!

You like rabid foxes??

That fox is rabid? I thought it was just derpy.

It is the Fox’s anniversary.

My two cats, both (altered) boys, are now and then to be seen grooming each other’s head. Dunno what that means.

Happy anniversary, Ms. Weasel and Uncle Badger — and many more to come!

Felicitations and salutations on your Fifth – and congratulations, as well, on having wedded upon a highly-appropriate and easily-memorable date. Obviates any likely chance of forgetting/neglecting observance of the event’s annual celebration – not that you folks seem at all likely to have such a lapse.

I myself (through a set of manoeuvers I will not detail here) was, with my bride, the proud possessor of TWO annual wedding anniversaries, one in October (the 13th) and another in July (the 30th), and faithfully observed each in its turn, each year of our nearly-25 total together (she is, quite sadly, now deceased; has been for a bit over five years…otherwise, we’d STILL be having those twice-yearly remembrances together). Even managed to handle it quite properly the year we were away on a trip overseas when one of the two dates rolled around…

May you have many, many more such events, all celebrated quite well and truly enjoyed.

Ahhh, I’m sorry, JS.

Thanks for the sentiment – I still miss her, just about every day I run up on something that I’m sure she’d’ve liked, or a memory of places we went and things we did…

They’re wrong, you know, when they say “it gets better with time” – it gets somewhat less bad, but there’s not really any “better” about it.

Life’s like that, though – we all go, it’s just a matter of when, how and where; along with being born, it’s one of the only two certainties in this life.

Really kinda sucks, I know – but that’s the way it is.
