When I returned late Wednesday afternoon from Chattanooga I noticed the power lines were down in our driveway, and me with a carload of lovely anniversary dinner ingredients and no electric, phone, cable tv or INTERNET ACCESS!!! Argh!
So how did we celebrate our anniversary? I left the food in a cooler on the porch, but took out the champagne, and we had sliced apples, cheese, raisins and pecans for our dinner. Dave entertained us with his acoustic 12 string guitar, wearing a battery powered headlamp strapped onto his bald head that made him look hysterically funny to me. His singing was definitely improved with the champagne. I conked out by 7:30 and he stayed up til 9:30 when the electric was restored. But still no phone, cable or email, which finally came back on at 2:30 today.
It was probably the best anniversary party in a long long time and tonight we'll have the gala meal I had planned. Film at 11.
Thanks for all your anniversary wishes.
PS. No hangover!!
