Descartes and I have made it another year. Phew. We had a lovely dinner at a New Orleans style restaurant with delicious food and fantastic service. I told the restaurant that it was our anniversary and we had a great table and were each promptly served a glass of champagne. I love champagne, and I really appreciate it when businesses do that one small thing that can make a customer feel special. It probably did not cost them very much for that champagne, but I will happily recommend the restaurant to anyone.
We took CalTrain home, it had been our plan all along, but it felt rather decadent, almost as good as a car and driver. Unfortunately I had us waiting for a week-day scheduled train and it was a Saturday. The ten minutes we left the tracks so I could use the bathroom was the time when the train actually came... so we waited another 45 minutes or so, chatting on a bench. We don't get to do that very often, and certainly not when we are both a little filled with good food and famous Hurricane rum punch.
