But first - Dennis left on Monday to spend a few days with his step-dad, Jack and the family. We enjoyed the pictures of all of them out for dinner at Outback, and another day at the horse track in Tampa. But if you remember, we had just go back from Dania, where on our trip home we rode through thousands and thousands of bugs.........So the first thing we needed to do was to wash and get those bugs off the car! And dryer sheets work great! Before and after photo:
And Tuesday was pick-up day for yard waste - so we cleaned up the palm trees and swept up all the leaves in the driveway from the neighbors large oak tree!
Laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning house, and doing some planning for our summer trips kept us busy for the next few days. Saturday we celebrated our 45th Wedding Anniversary! Together for 49, married for 45! And many thanks for the cards and well wishes, and face book messages from friends and family! Pictures below are from our wedding day in 1974!
No presents this year - but we had a good time and an absolutely awesome dinner at Red Lobster! Next time you go there, and especially for a special occasion, ask for Sony! He waited on us a couple of years ago on our wedding anniversary, and so we requested him this year! He is the absolute best!
We both had the Lobster Lovers Dream: Roasted Rock Lobster tail, Poached Maine Lobster tail and Lobster & Shrimp Linguine Alfredo, Salad, and those delicious biscuits! I had the green bean side, and Rich had the mashed potatoes with lobster gravy! And the white chardonnay with fruit garnish was excellent! And Sony surprised us with dessert to celebrate 45 years...Cheesecake with strawberries and whip cream with chocolate drizzle for two.......
And Sunday - we celebrated our son Dennis' 50th Birthday. We don't usually do birthday gifts - but we sent him home with a new T-Shirt (350 dog years old) and a new koozie that said This Old One Needs a Cold One!! Can't believe he is turning 50......time sure does fly.
