30th "Celebration" OUR Style


For any celebration we eat lunch out, not dinner, as most of you do. We go to bed much to early to eat dinner out.

We decided for our 30th Anniversary we wanted a BURGER.. Five Guys was our choice because the balmy temps were at 75 and brilliant sunshine, blues skies and white puffy clourds. PLUS Five Guys has  picnic tables on the sidewalks.


We sat in the filtered shade of 3 palm trees, and people watched. The day was perfect, the burgers were perfect, the company was perfect..  FG is next door to a Mexican Restaurant and Petco.... a steady stream of dogs going in and out and sitting under the tables while their owners eat, gave us much joy. Free entertainment.

NOTE: we had Sara Lee Coconut Cream Pie for Dinner at 4 PM...


We stopped in Petco for the 40 pound bag of dog food, and as I was doing you know what, Bob said....

"I am taking your camera if you don't come ON"... what ever could he have meant?

The Thing IS.... on the way to the car I took one more photo... can you guess what this was on?

Scroll Down
for the answer....

A brand new Shelby Cobra Mustang... can you believe 2 OTHER old ladies were laughing at me while I stooped down to take this in the front grill?
What is wrong with them?????

We ate at 5 Guys last week. Love them but like you it is a rare treat. That sounds like a perfect day and what a pretty setting. Bob made me laugh about taking your camera away. We are so like kindred spirits.

Ginny said...

What a perfect day! And it looks beautiful! So cool you watched a movie while you ate. The movie being "Come on boy, lets go to the pet store! Now, where's your leash?" I have had a Five Guys one time maybe 15 years ago. Our son adores them. And they must be great if that is where you went to celebrate. They just built a new one in town. I always take pictures in pet stores, they are a wealth of blogging. That being said, how on earth did you snap the birds and the guinea pig without cage wire in the way???

I so appreciate your style of celebrating, Sandra! Our anniversary is in December so we don't eat outside, although I would enjoy the free entertainment.

I have no idea why Bob would want to snatch your camera!! He ought to know by now what's REALLY important! And those silly "ladies" laughing at you? I just don't get it. ;)

recognized the cobra mustang logo. :) and i LOVE 5 guys! have to drive almost an hour to get to the nearest one here and that keeps me from having it but maybe once or twice a year. :)

Happy Anniversary! I had my first Five Guys in Florida and wasn't impressed but am in love with them now. When Mark and I go to the show together we will often stop at the one next to the theater. Yummy and their fries are good too.....

What a perfect 30th!

DawnTreader said...

Sounds perfect. I prefer going out for lunch rather than dinner as well... And rather "ordinary" food to the most fancy stuff, most of the time. Happy anniversary!

Happy Anniversary you two.
I love your sense of adventure. It's really not where you go , but who you are with that counts the most to me.
Great shots at the PetCo...
You would think after 30 years Bob would know you NEEDED to capture some shots to remember the special day...(:0)

photowannabe said...

I just read your preceding post and just had to say the "ghost" picture of your Honey is fabulous.
Very artsy and captures your Bob so well.

Rose said...

I did guess Cobra...the women laughing at you do not know how to live dangerously...and happily I would say. LOL

Linda said...

Happy Anniversary!!!! You guys sure know how to PARTY!!!! Right up my alley except the part about going to bed early!!
We love Five Guys!! And I ALWAYS love your photos! Since I met you - I take a lot more pictures of STUFF and THINGS!

Rebecca said...

:) Any 75 degree balmy day is an eat outside day in my book. Rebecca

Ann Thompson said...

we have a Five Guys here. They have awesome burgers and their fries are so good.
So what's so funny about taking a picture of the front of a car? Those ladies must have been a bit looney....lol

SweetMarie said...

sounds perfect! you make me want to be there with you! I knew what the cobra was from because of Kyle, my car boy. :) those ladies laughing really wished they had as much fun as you! :)
your dinner sounds delicious!!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Five Guys is a good choice. I enjoy their burgers and burger is a treat to me.

Terra said...

You are so right, what is wrong with them? Don't they know you are the Mad Snapper? My husband and I celebrate with lunch out, too.

Chatty Crone said...

Happy anniversary to you and Bob. I haven't been there in awhile - will have to go back and check it out again. And I can see why he would have to take your camera away - sometimes - lol.

ClickNCamera said...

Sounds like a perfect outing and a lovely view. Happy anniversary!

Kathy said...

I was ecstatic when a Five Guys was constructed only 45 miles from where I live!

Glad you had a great day on your anniversary.

A Quiet Corner said...

LOL! We don't go out at night either...we celebrate with either lunch or breakfast!!! Happy Anniversary...:)JP

Gail said...

What a perfect way to celebrate.

Happy anniversary!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Sounds like a nice anniversary outing! I love Five Guys hamburgers.
I can't imagine why anyone would laugh at you. After all, doesn't everyone love to take photos of car emblems? :)

Linda P. said...

A great way to celebrate in the sunshine! It sounds as if you had a relaxing one finishing off with that Coconut Cream Pie later in the day. I'm sure those ladies were laughing with you as your sense of fun is so infectious.

Ida said...

Happy Anniversary. Sounds like a great day was had. The lunch sounded good, the pie even better.
How fun to photograph some cute animals and I would have taken a photo of the cobra emblem too.
