Yeah... So We Don't Really Do Anniversaries

If you don't know that my wife is the greatest person in the world, well... she is. I can't help it. That's really is how I feel.

So, what does all this have to do with the image of the sign I made above? Well, here's the story.

Out of the almost 8 years we have together, a number of our anniversary just have not worked out. For instance, we went to a nice resturaunt, and they were completely out food. Then we went to a Pub that was completely out of Fish and Chips. How is it possible for a Pub to run out of Fish and Chips? Yeah... my thoughts exactly. Then we had the time that my car caught on fire while I was driving it. Oh yeah, there's the year the ladies kitchen caught on fire and the sprinklers flooded our apartment. We lived below her. By the way, this all really happened. In essence, the only anniversary gift that came out ok is what you see above.

For those of you who don't know, I'm a typical artist who has dabbled in a bunch of mediums. At one point, I was a sign designer and fabricator. Later I became the manager and had the opurtunity to use some old scrap for my personal art. With the materials and tools available I decided to fab a sign that reflected the interest of both my wife and myself. Since we both love vespas, it made since to make a cool retro vespa sign. Just to tie in the festive occasion I added "Anniversary Addition".

P.S. The paisley is not part of the sign. It is the back drop I used.

Candi, Thank you very much! But... um... since my mind works faster than my typing, sometimes I forget to explain or add detail as I should. Our anniversary is Feb 2 to be exact. I didn't mean to confuse anyone.

Since we have been in Chile, I haven't been able to take photos of this sign for a post. So, once again, thanks, and we will save it up for Feb.!b :)

Ha ha! Happy (early) Anniversary!

My husband and I met Feb 2, 1991, so that was our first anniversary. My sister was married on 2/2/02! So, I'm saying it's a really good date!
