Happy Anniversary to Us

Before I turn this blog back to its usual purpose (ranting and inanities), did I mention that last Thursday was our fifth wedding anniversary? That's right, back on November 24th, 2001, we got married. Happy Anniversary, Shelby — I love you! Marrying you is the very best thing I've ever done.

Being lucky that this wasn't one of the years where our anniversary fell on Thanksgiving, we celebrated the night with a very nice dinner at La Fondue down in San Juan Capistrano. La Fondue could be considered to constitute a very small statewide chain, as they've got two restaurants — this one and its Northern California parent, up in Saratoga. When we lived up in San Jose and were in the mood to splurge, La Fondue was one of our favorite local restaurants — so when I found out that they'd opened a branch right here in Orange County, we marked it down on our List Of Things To Do. While chatting with the woman at the front desk, we mentioned that we'd lived in the Bay Area, had been to the Saratoga restaurant, and loved it so much we had to come by. She turned out to be the owner — who'd also lived in the Bay Area, and she and her husband loved the Saratoga La Fondue SO much that when they moved down here, they contacted the Saratoga restauranteurs with a proposal to open a second restaurant. "I liked it so much, I bought the company!"
