    Afternoon at the Opera.

    Ah so many years ago today we were married.

    Good move!

    So I ask Miss M, "What would you like to do today?"

    "Opera," she says.

    Oh great.......

    Congratulations to you both.

    Looked like it might be fun for many of us. (Although I don't know about opera in a baseball park.)

    I think you found a good one there. You might as well keep her. Congratulations on all the years.

    maybe for your anny you should have tightened up her chain a bit;)

    looks like a good time. even though i dont care for opera (got a splitting headache at the two opers i have been to), looks like a day i wouldnt have minded. especially if it ended with classic cinema.

    That's not the opera that I was thinking about. It's a movie on a jumbotron in the stadium!

    Riding on sidewalks eh? tsk tsk tsk...

    Funny you should bring up food; I was talking to a lady sitting next to us who was eating Cracker-Jacks.

    We agreed, you just can't get quality food like that at the opera house.

    Coming in late on this. Happy anniversary + 4 days. It's good to see the Titanic Memorial. It's been a while since I was there.
