Melvine and I want to thank all of you who have remembered our anniversary by your calls, cards, and emails.
On Saturday, we invited our son, Gregory Holmes Morgan, to go with us for our anniversary dinner. Greg drove us in our Honda CRV to Social Circle, Georgia, an historic town to the Blue Willow Inn for an early dinner. They have the best smorgasbord in the known world, serve the best fried green tomatoes in the South with a dip that will tantalize your taste buds. Their Italian green beans and collard greens are the best I have ever had. The entrees are many. The desserts are heavenly. They even serve pecan pie, peanut butter pie, chocolate pie, and lemon icebox pie. Desserts to die for. Every time you enter the formal hall of the magnificent Greek Revival mansion or are seated in one of the elegantly appointed dining rooms you have the feeling of dining in the ante-bellum South in its glorious past. Seconds and even thirds are encouraged in the bountiful array of Southern dishes.
What I enjoy, too, is their Champagne of the South--sweetened ice tea. I normally drink unsweetened ice tea, but at the Blue Willow Inn, I do make an exception.
Melvine and I exchanged anniversary cards. Her Hallmark Card was far superior than the one I could find for a wife. So, it forced me to write out of my heart my love for Melvine. When we married, we married for life, and I am so grateful for all these many years we have been married. We have lived in many places, but for me it is home wherever Melvine is. I gave Melvine a dozen pink roses with baby breath. Her favorite color is pink. In addition I purchased her a US Weekly magazine about the Olympics. We have enjoyed watching the various games. We are proud of the athletes who represent the United States of America.
