My week to date has been at best blah, as evidenced by the fact that I've not posted since Sunday last. I tried at least 6 attempts at poetry yesterday to no avail.

The week has been dreary at times but there have been moments of sunshine and pleasant summer evenings. It has, however rained everyday, and currently the thunder is getting closer and the lightening is bringing brighter than daylight flashes ... an omen that this post may yet be erased by a power failure.

The coming weekend, starting today after work, is an auspicious one to be duly noted! D. and I are celebrating 40 years of marriage. Plans are such, that I will probably not post again 'til next week. This evening we will traverse the bridge over the St. Lawrence to Canada and dine in the quaint, rustically elegant "Brigadoon" restaurant in Oxford mills.
Saturday we will travel to Ottawa, Canada's capital city, where we have reservations at the Chateau Laurier. Sunday is the actual anniversary. I'm anticipating a wickedly wicked weekend!

Congratulations your fortieth anniversary! Wonderful that you can still find some wickedness after all these years! Had I stayed married it would have been 35 for me next year! Hope you have a spectacular weekend in my country! Anyone lasting that long deserves the very best! Rock on, wink wink!!!

Hey, WOW, and good for you!!!!! It sounds like you have planned an absolutely wonderful (or wicked, if you will) weekend. At 40 years it is well deserved. I hope it is every bit as good as you want it to be and then a little bit better than that!

JR and I will have 40 years two years from now in early August.

I'm sure the weeks ahead will more than make up for the dreary forerunner of the past few days. It will make the holiday all the sweeter.
What a lovely photo. Happy Anniversary to you both and have a blissful time together.
