San Geraldo and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary this past Saturday, 16 August.
Well, we didn’t so much celebrate it as we did forget it.
And, to be honest, I don’t know when either of us would have finally realized except that Linda (Jerry’s sister) emailed us on the 18th to apologize for being late with her anniversary wishes. We were on the train heading to Feria Málaga when the email arrived.
“Hey, Jerry, guess what we forgot!” I laughed. He didn’t have a clue. When I told him, he asked, “What month is this?”
At the start of the month, I began to wonder, “Now whose birthday is on the 16th?”
For the next two weeks, whenever the question came to mind, the only person I could think of was Valerie B.
Don’t know Valerie B? We went to Junior High School together. I haven’t seen her or heard anything about her since 1971. Anyway, Valerie B’s birthday was July 16th, not August 16th. So, no, not Valerie B.
One would think, if I could remember the birthday of someone I haven’t seen in 43 years, I’d remember my own anniversary.
So, Tuesday night (the 19th), spur of the moment, we had our second-annual anniversary dinner in Fuengirola at Sandpiper. I guess that means it’s a tradition.

Oh, by the way, apple pie smothered in custard (although sooooooooo delicious at Sandpiper) is not a good idea the day after a waffle and chocolate overdose.

This was the Number 1 hit when I met San Geraldo. Never one of my favorite songs but, well, if the shoe fits! Here’s to My Endless Love.
