Anniversary

Today Joe and I celebrate our 41st anniversary. We finished work yesterday and then snuck away to a favourite spot up north. We overlook a lake and have a lovely patio where we can sit and quietly contemplate the world. It's rare for us to go away by ourselves with no purpose and no plans. We've brought up some books, come crosswords and we have some computer games we can play if we wish.

For a whole day we are going to just be quietly together. We spend so much time travelling and being in groups, so much time at home with things to do, we figure we'll just be two cool older guys just doing nothing. Absolutely nothing.

So, I figure you've all got lots of reading on the Carnival so please forgive me as Joe and I take today off. I'll be back with a blog on Wednesday morning.

wonderful! I always find it reassuring/hopeful to hear that there are people who genuinely want to spend quality time together after many beautiful years together.

Happy Anniversary Dave and Joe!
I remember hearing you mention at the WDSC in Dublin last year that you had just celebrated 40 and I was so impressed! (impressed at the number and impressed that you said it!) Hard to believe how time flies. Enjoy your time together. We wish you many more happy years together!

Well done, both on the years and on the vacay (albeit a short one). Have a relaxing day!
