What do you think of when you hear the number 31? For me, the first thing that comes to mind is Baskin-Robbins ice cream.  And today, my wedding anniversary.

Tony and I were married at noon on August 2, 1980. Tonight we're going out for dinner, but other than that we don't have big plans. After all these years, we don't need them. Just enjoying each other's company is enough.

In honor of our day, here's a corny composition, using the names of some of the original and current Baskin-Robbins flavors.
Dear Tony,

All those years ago, it didn't take many Date Nuts to know you were the one for me. You're quite a Peach. Honey Nut Crunch, life hasn't always been a Cherries Jubilee. We've had our share of Rocky Roads. However, I hope you don't think that I'm Nutty Coconut when I say you're World Class Chocolate.

Call me Old Fashioned Butter Pecan, but I can't imagine my life without you. We've had some great times and raised three wonderful boys that are Chocolate Chips off the old block.

How should we celebrate our anniversary? We could go stick our feet in the Mississippi Mud, or exchange presents wrapped up with a Gold Medal Ribbon. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, so maybe there will be a Rainbow Sherbet we could look at. Whatever we choose to do, let's finish the day with some German Chocolate Cake and a nice cup of Coffee.



  1. Awww! Happy Day! LOVE anniversary dinner out! Congratulations!
