Mike and Mel’s 22nd!

Of course they could spend the night was my response when Michael called a few days ago. “We would love it.”

Mike and Melina are celebrating their 22nd wedding anniversary and he had planned a secret trip–to San Diego. “What sort of clothes should I pack,” Melina had asked him.

“Something for the beach.”

I’ll spare you the report of their trip from Lake Havasu, and her finally understanding they were heading for her in-laws’ house, (What? our anniversary!) but it was just for the evening where I had planned a special dinner for them, and where we had a great evening, a wonderful visit, and a fine meal which we ate on the back deck. Jerry splendidly grilled and made a beautiful presentation of luscious salmon, finished with a raspberry-orange balsamic glaze. This morning bacon and eggs . . . and now they’re gone to their real anniversary celebration at the Marina Marriott in San Diego.

I’m wishing this wonderful couple–these children of mine– every blessing of God and many more years together.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
