Jess and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary today. I have lots to be thankful for but one thing for sure…. Jess is a good listener.
With all that’s going on in the world one thing I really missed and it’s a bit silly…but I missed going to the movies.
Over the years we sometimes switch off..meaning one year I organized the surprise and others Jess did. Some times we went away, or out for a nice dinner. This year neither of us planned anything, well, Jess secretly did. A few days ago she said don’t make plans, do I didn’t.
We set off from the house and I was under strict instructions to close my eyes as it was a surprise. I tried to figure out where we were going but lost track. We ended up in the parking lot of O’neil cinema in Littleton MA. I was shock and didn’t know why we were there and asked if the cinema was open…Jess said…for us it is!
My darling wife rented a movie theater for us for our anniversary! Apparently you can do this! You need to supply your own Blueray DVD, you can order food and drinks and have the whole place to yourself.
We watched a classic “The fifth element”. It’s a great movie and even better on the big screen when you have it all to yourself.
Thanks Jess for a wonderful 21 years and a wonderful gift…..and best of all thanks for listening. Love you, Alan
According to MA laws our marriage can legally have a drink today! Happy Anniversary Jess, love you. Here’s to the next 21 and beyond years.
GMan had a big one today. If we lived in Ireland he could vote and have a pint!
We are installing a new roof and skylights today…well, that was a royal we! We are paying and someone else is doing.
The fix will be to lay in a 2×6, fill in the gap with plywood, ice and water up to the clear story window opening, counter flash, trim with PVC and seal up all around.
Tune in tomorrow for more!
Always wanted to visit Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Webster MA. Jess and I took a Sunday drive on Labor Day Monday with the dogs.
After a short walk we headed to the beach but no doggy allowed so we checked it out one at a time.

Today JMan was Bar Mitzvah. Given the circumstances we held it at home on our garage. It was just the four of us, the Rabbi, Cantor and our good friend Bret behind the camera.
The event was great and JMan did a fantastic job. We are so proud of our little big man!
That time of year again. This year we stayed local and went to Carlson’s Orchards right here in Harvard MA.
Not exactly a cool day for picking anything….bar a pint at yours local but nothing like fresh fruit.
