Sunday Notes.

Was up and at em for morning coffee with my bride at 06:00AM.
We had a great dinner last night to celebrate our 33rd Wedding Anniversary at the Olive Garden in Wentzville MO. what a nice place, but for some reason the service was slow compared to past visits.
       Donna & Sam, still going after 33 years.
Cocktail Hour, Sam stuck with a Stella Artois Beer.
Donna’s dinner, Tuscan Chicken w/Tortellini.
           Sam had Spaghetti/w Italian Sausage.
For Dessert it was Zeppoli’s w/ choc or raspberry sauce. My Grandma and Mom used to make these but they called the pizza-frias.
All in all we came away full and had a great dining experience, although a violin player to serenade your bride during Dinner would have been a crowning touch.
Today Donna will go in to the restaurant and hostess from 10AM until 04:00PM then I will put some brats and burgers on the grill for supper when she gets home, I can smell the grill already.
Not much planned for today, I will organize my storage bins on the fiver, and change the water filter on the whole house filter we use for our city water hookup.I bought a couple extra spares yesterday at Lowes.
Have to decide if I want to go to the Lake for the Holiday Weekend, which is coming up next weekend, didn’t go last year, but if I go I have to get the trailer up there and setup by Wednesday at the latest if I want my good spot.
It is supposed to be in the 90’s all week and weekend so The Lake and Pool will be ready for all the visitors.
Still haven’t heard from the window place on when the parts will ship, I hope they aren’t having trouble getting some of them. But all is dry and usable with the Florida repairs we made with Paul’s help.
That’s about it for today, Hope everyone’s weekend is as good as ours. Please be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Great pictures - you guys look so happy. Got me wondering - does Donna compare the service she gets at a restaurant with what she does at work? I think I would.

  2. Looks like you all had a great evening - Sounds like a great dinner tonight too, I love anything cooked on the grill. Angela

  3. I took an extra diabetes pill after viewing all those good food pictures..... Sounds like it was a good anniversary.....

  4. Happy Anniversary. Like I said yesterday on Facebook, we hope you have many, many more! Looks like you two had a great night out. I love Donna's drink, sure looks yummy!
