28 Years

The Big Guy and I can tick off another anniversary.  We are now at 28 and I'm even happier with him today than I was in 1988.  Anyone who know the TBG, knows he was a great catch and I'm one lucky gal.  We've been through a lot together and he is stuck with me for life.

Our celebrations sometimes take place at camp, but this year we were home.  The main anniversary event was dinner at The Left Bank, our favorite Buffalo restaurant.  We've been going there since we moved to the area in the early 90's.  They've always served our favorite appetizer, a stuffed portobello mushroom.  Since the place is impossible to dine at without a reservation, we only tend to go for special occasions.   Generally, we tend to be impromptu diners and a normal Friday night out is a more casual event.

We finished the night off with a nice cake that came from Sweet Beginnings bakery.   It was a buttercream frosted deep dark chocolate cake with a ganache/dark chocolate filling.  TBG was trying to be conscientious and ordered a smaller cake.  In years past, we went full size!

For a number of years, we have wanted a decent quality SLR camera -- especially when the eagles soar by at camp.  I plan to search on line and buy one as our present to each other.  Of course, along with soaring eagles, I'll have to take tons of doc pictures...

    1. He has wanted one for a while and to be safe, I purchased a warranty. I can't wait to take better pictures!

    1. Thank you Jeanie! TBG is a new man with his new knees. I'm gimping along. I have another orthopedic issue I just learned about but can't interrupt the new job to deal with it... Guess I'm ready to be put out to pasture!
