25th Wedding Anniversary

This morning looked very much like it did 25 years ago.  As my aging brain remembers it, the weather was rainy for a good part of the day Sue and I got married.  

Started my run this morning despite the lite drizzle.  Made it about a mile or so away and the rain started to come down harder.  I turned for home as I really don't like running in the rain, especially when the wind picks up, driving it into my face.  Squeaked out a soggy 2.75 miles....
Back in the day, it was uncommon for couples to get married on a Friday eve.  We were and are not like other couples, and unlike a great deal of our friends and associations, we must have derived some luck from the rainy day 25 years ago.

Suzanne's mother, Peggy kept telling us that it is good luck to have rain on your wedding day.  Alanis Morissette who just came to town the other night had a break out career with "And isn't it ironic... don't you think. It's like rain on your wedding day"  

This day in history "Bruce Jenkins and Suzanne Walsh get married"  The rabbi and monsignor married us at Suzanne's church in Brooklyn in a dual ceremony.  As the Rabbi said, this will be the last time you put your foot down.  This is in reference to breaking a glass under my heel...

The rain stopped 25 years ago as our Limo's, friends and families came to the church...on our way to the reception, you can see the sun peeking out from behind some clouds....So ironically, there was rain on our wedding day, but not our wedding eve.  I guess getting married on a Friday night was a good idea.

Today, I went to Macy's to buy Sue a ring.  Not just any ring, but another wedding band.  This one with princess cut Sapphire, her birth stone.  Isn't it ironic that there are 3 stones in the ring and we have 3 great sons that we are raising.  One stone for each of them.

After exchanging gifts and waiting for Kyle to get home from his soccer tryouts, we made our way out to dinner.  Not having made the choice yet, I looked around the Sayville area close to home and picked out 25 Bistro.

Again, isn't it ironic, don't you think.  Our 25th anniversary and we go out to eat at 25 Bistro.  Great choice as we shared a lobster bisque and mushroom rissoto.  Sue had crab cakes and i had braised short ribs.  According to our server all dishes we ordered are considered their signature dishes.  We ended the meal with a shared dessert of Carrot cake bread pudding, caramel, crumbs cake crumbs and a really creamy home made vanilla/cheeescake icecream.  Yes that sounds like a big dessert but it was just enough.

Back home to blog...Kyle and Luke pretending to have fallen asleep on the couch.  How ironic that I will be sleeping before them.

Happy Anniversary Sue - I will always love you.
