My wife and I celebrate our fifth anniversary today. I don’t think that’s as big of an accomplishment at 50 years, but it’s a good start by most of today’s standards. I was looking for some information today on the fifth anniversary and found this….

Imagine my surprise to find that the theme for gifts on the fifth anniversary is nothing other, but our favorite subject around here, WOOD. Anyway, I’m trying to convince her that we need to spend the evening working in the shop…..

Why don’t you taker her out to eat, buy her some flowers, and then work in the shop? Happy anniversary and I hope that you have many more to come.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!
Be warned though. Have kids around. My wife and I have been together quite a bit longer than you two. Still though, if she and I try to work together in the shop without kids around, for some odd reason, we never seem to get much work done.

BTW. I’m going to start a shop rearrangement today. You remember the oak you got from me? The one’s that were 3/4” thick and 2”-4” wide and about seven foot long, the strips? I need to know if you want more of them. My son and I are moving that whole pile today. We are going to seperate the oak and pecan from the cottonwood. I’m hoping you wanted the hardwood. If not, and I can’t find someone else to take it, then I’m going to have to cut it up for firewood. I just don’t have room to keep storing it. I hate to burn wood that pretty though. PM me and let me know so I can start contacting other people if you don’t want it.

I thought going out to eat, a card, and flowers were just an understood thing, but I think we’re going to wait until tomorrow to do that. I really hate going to the busier parts of town on Friday nights. It’s funny though, there’s nothing new about waiting to us, our initial wedding was actually postponed by two weeks because of Hurricane Katrina.

Five years doesn’t seem so long, time flies when you’re having fun!

I think you could consider my wife and I had a traditional “redneck” wedding. We went to the church with just me her and our kids. We got married. She drove the van. I showed up after a wrecker call, in the wrecker (had to change shirts before going into the church). We got married. Then we went to Pizza Inn for lunch. After that we had a conference to go to at one of the schools. Then I went back to work and Lisa went and moved my bed into her room since before that we slept in different rooms because of the kids.
Thought you might like a little humor.

That’ll be nice. That will also give you both something to do with each other tomorrow as well. Ain’t life grand! Have a good weekend.

Happy anniversary!

You’ve got it all wrong. You are supposed to spend your 5th anniversary working with wood, but not in the shop. You’re thinking of the wrong kind of wood.

So, just a follow up to this post, I didn’t spend the 5th anniversary in my shop. The wife and I (and a friend with a truck) actually went to visit William and his crew at their shop. William had some wonderful scrollsaw work that was to be my wife’s anniversary present. Fun evening to say the least.
