An Anniversary Memory

For our 29th Anniversary, Scott planned a wonderful mid-week celebration. He rented a town car, got a suite at the best motel in Salem, and took me out to a wonderful dinner at Morton’s. I had just gotten the cast off my right leg (On my birthday, he took me to the dump. Not once, but twice that day. Ever so the romantic. Anyway, I was collecting junk from around the yard and tripped. I re-injured my right Achilles tendon and had to wear a plastic cast for almost three months.)

I was so pampered those few days. The town car was as big as a Rose Festival float! The food at Morton’s was superb! There was a bouquet of candy and a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. Some flowers too. Later, we sat in the spa tub in the room and watched ‘Mars Attacks!’ All in all, a great couple of days.

The dinner at Morton’s was memorable. We don’t drink much. So the wine list was lost on us. We did enjoy the couple at another table that made a fuss over the wine to have with appetizers, the right wine with dinner, and then wanted the perfect desert wine. We chuckled. The next day, at check-out, there was the same couple trying to navigate the lobby on their way out. We chuckled.
