    Default Anniversary dinner

    Although today is actually our 45th anniversary, I took my wife to diner
    Thursday night to avoid the Mother's Day crowd. It also allows the staff to
    do the little special things I planned.

    We went to the Harvest http://www.harvestrestaurant.com/

    Two days ahead I went there and had the menu planned for both of us. Right
    from cocktails, three courses, then a shared Baked Alaska for dessert. As
    planned, we arrived and were seated in a window alcove and no menu was given
    to us as it was not needed. The waitress just brought our drinks and some
    bread. Then each course was served over the evening at a slow pace.

    My wife loved it, of course. I've done this often over the years and she
    enjoys the attention and the surprise. The Harvest is one of the places we
    like for special occasions as both the food and service are superb. The
    table had fresh flowers, an anniversary card and in a quiet place.

    You're a good husband Ed, keep it up and you will stay married a long,
    long time. We celebrated our fiftieth anniversary this past December. We
    chose a restaurant in a small town in Texas where we had lived thirty
    years ago. All eighteen of our descendants were in attendance and we had
    a great time. I'm sure your anniversary was just what you and your wife
    wanted. Congratulations.

    Oh, my....POMFRET? Love that area. Oh, to be wealthy....

    How romantic of you to plan all this, and get the alcove. Gee, almost
    like a place of proposal. I'm a pushover for things like that.

    Lovely. That would not have occurred to my husband in 1000 years.
    He is among the least romantic of engineers. We'll celebrate 45 yrs. in
    Sept.

    Thank you. Maybe for the 50th we'll do a bit more, but this we truly
    enjoyed just sharing the time together.

    There is quite a bit of truly affordable housing in Pomfret. Not Renee
    Zellweger's or Brian Dennehy's house, of course, but lots of regular folk
    live there too.

    I chose the menu ahead of time, but I've also gone a step further and told
    the owner, just give us a dinner, your choice what to make. Never been
    disappointed.

    Cuddling is one thing; not being in control is another. Oh, he'd be
    surprised, all right.

    Oh, yeah...that is a mighty nice celebration.

    The restaurant goes on my list, too, as it is within striking distance
    for a weekend;s roadtrip.

    Very nicely done, ed. Congratulations on the impressively big number (45)!

    Arrangements like that are especially nice if you can pre-order and have the
    wines opened in advance.

    If you can't make it for dinner, the breakfast buffet on Sunday is nice too.
