I don't normally post on Tuesday but there are things I need to say today.
First - the mystery:
I did so buy my husband an Anniversary card. I went to the Hallmark store last week and bought three Mother's Day cards, two birthday cards, and one beautiful "to my husband" anniversary card. As I usually do, I stashed the bag of cards in a drawer in the china hutch. On Mother's Day, I took out, signed and gave the three Mother's Day cards and one birthday card to the appropriate people. (The other birthday card is for later.)
Today is our 42nd anniversary. This morning, I slipped downstairs early to sign the anniversary card and set it beside my husband's breakfast. The Hallmark bag was still there. It contained two lovely little gold crown seals, a receipt for all the cards mentioned above, and one birthday card. My beautiful anniversary card was missing.
Although I'm quite certain I never removed it from the bag, I began to search all through the hutch. Lo and behold, I found an anniversary card. But it didn't look familiar. I know mine said "to my husband". This one said...oops, I guess my hubby stashes his cards in the hutch, too. Sorry, hon.
I've searched every place I can think of and still no card. So help me out, mystery fans...where's my lovely anniversary card?
The sad note:
Jane Kennedy Sutton's blog Jane's Ride contained the incredibly sad news yesterday that Jane passed away last Friday. Please keep Jane's family in your thoughts and prayer's.
The blatent plug:
For my friend, Maria Zannini - Maria's latest, Apocalypse Rising, was released yesterday. I read it. I loved it. I strongly recommend it. Actually, I recommend you buy Touch of Fire and Apocalypse Rising and read them in order so you can savor this romantic adventure from its beginning.
Oh, one other thing I have to do:
To our good friends Jim and Karin, who also just happen to tie the knot 42 years ago today - Happy Anniversary!
No groaner today. Two days in a row would be too much for some of you to handle. (You know who you are.)
