Forty-one Revolutions


Today Mark and I have been married 41 years. Lots of good times, drama, irritability, sadness and contentment intertwined within those 41 years. 41 years, that's how old I was when we moved to this farm.

We went to the oldest drive-in in Minnesota for lunch to celebrate our endurance. Mark was like a little kid, excited to be going and eating what turned out to be excellent burgers. I had a root beer float, I haven't had one of those in decades and it was really good. We were both a couple of ten year old kids!

The weather is beautiful, mild and sunny. I think the universe decided to smile on us. Of course it is all for us. 👫

It was a $50 lunch at a drive-in. Surprised us both. Things are expensive. I guess I'll need to do more food preservation! Ciao. Or should I say Chow?

Happy Anniversary! Yes eating out is getting more expensive all the time. I wonder how many mom and pop places will go out of business? :(

Happy anniversary to both of you! And good health, long life and great burgers!

Sandra said...

Thank you, Boud! May we all have those things.

Congratulations on 41 years. I was 40ish when I moved here to our place too. I can't imagine living in other places, though one day I imagine I may have to move.

Great burgers make it wonderful.
On the price? I get that.
It is probably one of the reasons we stay at home and don't dine out.

Sandra said...

Thanks, Val. It's a lot harder to take care of this place than it used to be!

We don't eat out, either, but Mark wanted to go to the drive-in and it was enjoyable. So, it was worth it!

Far Side, you were in spam again! Thank you. I think many will end up closing. It's sad.
