Dancing...Two Years Later...A Ruby Reminder

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, November 10, 2009

There was DANCING last night and today TRAVIS of "Trav's Thoughts" gives you the low-down...remember to check him out and find out what went down on the dance floor...We are getting close to awarding that big ole Mirror Ball...It is exciting!

Two years ago on November 12th, the following was part of my post. The 12th was a Monday. That previous Saturday was the 10th...today is two years since that day -

Well...guess what kiddies?!?!?!?!

We finally got to go to the ZOO!

Yup Yup Yup...We went Saturday and had the most incredible time.

HEY Travis! We got to dance for the monkeys and they didn't fling anything!

It is a nice zoo...the animals are displayed in their environment and it is very clean. A good collection of animals...We especially LOVED the snake house...

Lots of laughs and smiles...

we need to develop the roll of film we shot...might have gotten some good shots...

Then Sunday a wonderful relaxing day...did a little buffet with some hot wings, slices of Parmesan Riggiano and Monterey jack, slices of salami, bruschette, pepperoni, sesame bread sticks, anchovy filets and ice cold beer.

More laughs...more smiles...and they feel good...

Overall, like the best weekend we have had in a way long time and so long overdue...

Well... no music...just smiles and laughs and bright blue skies...and the video...From 1991, a concert in Germany...Warren Hayes ripping up on the slide guitar and Dicky just letting that guitar burn...

'lord you know it makes me high when you turn your love my way....'

You see...it just felt so right even on the first official date.

The snake house is where we had our first kiss...

On Sunday morning, I called her and invited her to watch a little football and have a real Italian Antipasto, and she accepted.

The day became even more interesting when she let me know how much she loved anchovies, so put them all out...a gal that looks like she does, talks to me with that oh so sexy Mississippi drawl, loves sports...heck I figured she could be a keeper.

And now we are married 2 months and 5 days.... Who woulda really thunk it???

I am one lucky guy!
