Posted in Snapshot365 with tags , , , , , , on December 24, 2010 by AZSalsman

December 24, 2010I bet that you thought that this day’s picture would have to do with Christmas.  It is, in fact, the eve of the birth of Jesus.  However, in keeping with festivities of the season, today is the celebration of the birth of my wife, Carol.  Lunch outside at The Farm at South Mountain on a gorgeous “winter” afternoon under blue skies and the barren pecan trees made a lovely little gala.  Happy birthday, Carol!

Please note that there are plenty of fine carols to be sung this time of year but none so great as my Christmas Carol (hee hee)

Okay, it is my wife’s and my anniversary today and I hear you ask: “What do peanut butter and green beans have to do with our anniversary?”

Okay…I will tell  you.

I have been teaching 4th and 5th graders Computer Graphics and Animation at Arizona State University during the afternoons for three weeks.  Friday, I asked the students what I should get my wife for our anniversary (mostly, I was just creating bonding time with the class.

One of the boys in the back yelled out “Peanut Butter”. Surprised by the option, I asked why?  “Because it is AWESOME!!!!!”..

Right after that, another quiet boys in the front squeaked out “Green Beans…I like green beans”.

This year, I shop for an anniversary gift in a grocery store.  maybe I will pick up some ice cream for dessert while I am there.
