This year, it's Tuesdays
« on: October 02, 2017, 11:53:56 PM »
Michelle should have been 56 tomorrow.  Thus starts my anniversary season, remembering that 7 years ago tomorrow was a fine Sunday to go see the fall colours and stop at a chocolate shop on the way home.  Her last good trip out of the house, as the next and last would be the chemo visit that got turned into "I'm sorry, there's nothing more we can do."

I have a new relationship, and it's good, though it's still hard to tell if it's "IT".  This will be the first anniversary season she will get to share with me.  I guess how and how much I let her see is my test, and how she reacts is hers.  She's had trials, but isn't a widow.

Through a quirk of fate, all of my days - her birthday, her sadiversary five weeks from now, and our wedding anniversary eight weeks from now - are all on the same day.  This year, it's Tuesdays.

Take care,
Rob T
There was something fishy about the butler.  I think he was a Pisces, probably working for scale.

Hey there, Rob,

'Tis the season, eh?  My dates seem to be spread around the entire calendar.

"Happy Birthday, Michelle" just doesn't seem to cut it...so perhaps you can drum up some better memories of her on her special day.

Hugs to you and R and S,

Maureen

Drinking a glass of Lambrusco for the b-day girl...hope she would have approved!
