Yesterday Steve and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary by having an official date. It was actually my idea, but he went along with it in his usual good-natured way. We dressed up; he in a sport coat, me in one of my few dresses, and went to Runyon’s Restaurant of Coral Springs (http://www.runyonsofcoralsprings.com/ ). As it happens, they’re celebrating their 25th Anniversary, which caused some reflection on our parts about how long we’ve been here and how long Coral Springs has been a city of enough significance to support a fine restaurant. The dinner was delicious, topped off with a complimentary slice of to-die-for—or from—ice cream cake. The service was excellent. The entertainment was adequate. And the company superb.
Another term has ended at Broward College. Several senior students, in an effort to show recognition and appreciation, wrapped my Mini in cellophane. Seemed like an odd thing for them to do at the time, though I understand they originally planned the prank for April Fool’s Day. The attached sign was the kicker that made it all feel good. Oh, and they unwrapped it, as well.
I’ve signed up for Facebook again. Some months ago when I originally created an account, my son objected, saying there were some places he didn’t want his mother to be. Okay. I gave him that, and discontinued the account. I’m there again, at his invitation this time. “Mom, Facebook is mainstream now.” He’s my only current friend on the service. Won’t you sign up and join me? He’s also got me involved in playing the game FarmVille. I’m not sure what the point of the whole thing is, but I’m having some fun with it.
