Anniversary Murder Weekend

This weekend is my 23rd Wedding Anniversary with the wife and it's going to be a fun one.

All the years past I planned what we did for that special day. Some years are well planned out surprises and then some years all it is a "plan as we go" kinda night. Either way it always ends up a special time and a wonderful night.
It seams every year I wanted to outdo what we did the year before. The question, "How am I going to top this next year?" always ran through my head at the end of the night. 
I remember when we were just starting out so many years ago and being dirt floor poor, all I could do for our day was have a picnic down by the lake. We would lay on a blanket in the moonlight and watch planes fly over, day dreaming about where they came from or where they were going. We would tell ourselves that one day we would be on one of those planes and going wherever it took us. Those nights we would lay there, holding hands, telling each other our dreams and making plans for the rest of our lives.  
Those were good times and they have gone by so fast.

This year is different though. Being I have been working so much, I have not had the chance to plan anything so I left it up to her this year. After all, I have planned 22 of them already. It is my turn to be wined and dined and not worry about anything.

So she booked us for a nice little dinner at a Murder Mystery.
I ain't ever done anything like this before so this is outside the box for me.
You go into this dinning room and mingle. Then, someone dies. Then they feed you while you participate in an active investigation of the murder. It's kinda like the old game of Clue, but you are actually in the game. It was the butler, in the dinning room, with the pipe.
I read the reviews and it seems like a fun thing to do. It's different I give her that.
I just wonder what she is going to do next year to top this.

Have a great weekend.
See ya on Monday,
