Robin-1983_Better_1988But in order to have that many years of bliss, one must find the right and the perfect partner. I did! Robin has given me those perfect years. Someone asked to pick the one thing in those 31 years that stands out as being perfect. My answer? “Those 31 years stand out!”
We had a great Anniversary Weekend and some great meals. Thanks to Marnie and Mac and Sophia, we had a good Sunday breakfast at the Original Pancake House. Then we had to work in our kitchen, The Captain’s Shack. Some yummy food came out of the kitchen this past weekend. Here, take a look and enjoy. And remember to Left-Click any of these photos to see them enlarged. Thank-You Robin for giving me 31 Years of Bliss!

Big smiles! 31 Years together!

Oysters on the Half-Shell with Mignonette

Wonderful fresh Pacific oysters from Reel Foods Fish Market here in Boise. They get Blue Crabs from the Eastern Shore on occasion and Chincoteague oysters sometimes. We are on a “Call List” when they get some in.

Can't have a great dinner without some great wines. Here is what we had from our cellar (L-R) - 2005 Clos de Allees Vieilles Vignes 2009 Baron de Rothschild Bordeaux 2001 Chateau Grand Puy Coste
