Married for Two Years
Last year we celebrated at the beach. This year, at home, in the yard.
What is a good anniversary without some good old fashioned advice?
As Mr. Broome and I were about to throw the frisbee around tonight, Mr. Burson pulled up on his golf cart. "You kids don't know what a hard days work is" and "You kids don't know what a real meal is. Mrs. Nancy(his wife) cooked some fresh Vidalia Onions in a pot with potatoes the other night, and that was the best durn meal."
We adore Mr. Burson. He is a spicy neighbor to have around. Always has an opinion about something which we have learned to appreciate.
He told us tonight- "You kids think you're still on the honeymoon. Just you wait, Oh, just you wait. Once you start having young-uns you'll play second fiddle. The honeymoon will be over!"
Oh Mr. Burson.
We had a great anniversary. It began at 2:30 when I woke Mr. Broome. I couldn't stay awake by myself any longer listening to the pounding rain and howling wind. I wiggled Mr. Broome's warm, snoozing body. "What?" He said. "Wake up please and watch the weather with me. I'm scared the magnolia tree's going to fall on the house."
He wasn't a happy camper, but he did end up staying up. Off and on we snoozed, until it was time for Mr. Broome to leave for work.
I took the day off to meet him at his office for lunch and to meet his co- workers. I had a great time and was encouraged to see the genuine people he works with. He really does have friends there, and I think that's a good thing considering work is a place you must go each day. Might as well have co- worker's you also get the pleasure of calling friends.
We had salmon, potatoes, and biscuits for dinner. It was yummy and we had a fun time cooking together.
That's all. Have a good week friends.
