So, Mrs Juvat and I just celebrated 34 years together. (Cue Cheers!) Being the ever so romantic guy I am, I took her out to dinner. A nice bottle of Texas Hills Vineyards (owned by good friends and frequent travel buddies) Malbec went well with the meal and we settled in for a bit of ....Talking.
The male members of the Chant readership will recognize that as an opportunity to crash and burn in a spectacular fireball with little chance of redemption. My warning receivers were highly tuned.
She happened to mention that we'd both been working some long hours, then asked "Did I think we needed a short break?"
Now, I've been married to the Lady for 34 years. I don't need Google translate, with translate from "Wife" and translate to "Husband" selected, to know that the Lady actually said "Dear, we're going on a weekend getaway!" (Notice the lack of anything indicating optional participation.)
My highly trained Fighter Pilot perception picked right up on that. Yes it did.
"Dearest, What a great idea! Where would you like to go?"
(That's what my response sounded like to me anyhow.)
"Hyatt Hill Country Resort"
"So let it be written, so let it be done."
We have been there before, but always with the kids. This time it's just the two of us, the kids having other obligations.
We'll miss them. A little....Maybe...
Ok, I haven't been alone with my wife in a luxury hotel since, probably, our honeymoon.
Yes, I'm looking forward to it.
I've got to admit there's something about this shot that I find extremely inviting!
|Should you be interested, here's where the photo came from|
God willing and the creek don't rise, you'll be reading this Monday morning and we'll be back in the harness a bit more relaxed and ready to go.
Be safe and ....Make good choices! (An admonishment one of my Daughter's friends would always leave with. I thought it was funny. YMMV.)
Update: Mission successful, a bit of scorching on my lily white shoulders and legs from sun exposure, and a new alternator to be installed in the Wife's vehicle hopefully early this week, but a rental was arranged and the weekend was restful. Who knew it's possible to sleep til 0840?
