This is a special week! Monday is our 41st wedding anniversary. Thursday, if the weather is good, we’ll be going to the State Fair of Texas.

About Monday and why we’re staying home on our anniversary: Did you know that Sunday and Monday are the worst days to have seafood out? I heard this once and looked it up. Apparently, the last fish delivery for the week at most restaurants is Friday. Unless it makes a brisk business everyday, you run the risk of not getting the freshest fish until after the Monday deliveries.

Since we spend big $$$ on birthdays and anniversaries we want the best, so we’ll eat at home on Monday and celebrate at a restaurant on Tuesday.

Thursday, weather permitting, we’ll go to the fair. I try not to eat a lot of fair foods because that stuff is a heart attack on a stick, but one day of living dangerously shouldn’t hurt.

Do you have a yearly fair where you live? Do you ever go? Do you indulge in ‘fair food’?

In Monday’s post I plan to pick on Greg but I’m also running an informal poll about husbands in general.
