89: funny story... | Early in December I was in the kitchen and I happen to look down at my wedding ring and saw that my solitaire diamond was gone. At first I was shocked and upset that it was gone, then a feeling came over me. Maybe it was fate. Jeff & will be married 20 years on Dec. 28th. This was a way that I could get a new (and larger) diamond for my ring. I finally called Jeff at work and told him the (good) news. He chuckled and asked me if I still had the pliers sitting there that I used to get the diamond out. Would I do that? Noooo. That evening Jeff & I were sitting down to eat dinner, when I moved a stack a newspapers, and behold...the missing diamond. Now I had to convince Jeff that I still NEEDED a new diamond. Luckily I didn't have to do too much begging. So on our anniversary, we went to dinner at Tiramisu in Quincy, and Jeff gave me my ring back with a sparkly new, (and bigger) diamond. Here's to 20 more years Jeff, I Love You!

90: NEW YEAR | HAPPY | We spent New Year's Eve down at Donna and Kenny's Lake House. The evening was spent doing what we do best: playing cards, eating and drinking. Brad and Shay had a good time too!
