Rockin' the Hibachi

Today is our 21st wedding anniversary. We went out tonight to celebrate my birthday, however, because A is too busy to celebrate next weekend. We had W's girlfriend and her family with us. We still enjoy doing things together even though W is gone. We went Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar. Fun was had by all. they gave me a beautiful angel statue that they had bought for me after W died. I just love it because we can talk about W all we want and everyone is glad to talk about him and doesn't think we are weird. They are like family!

I am finally feeling better and more ambitious. I am beginning tonight to put together W's poems into a book for publishing. I am going to email some of the poetry to his girlfriend so that she can illustrate some of it. She draws beautifully. I am so excited about this! I am dreaming that at some point I can get an ISBN number and give a copy to local libraries.
