My husband says he felt a shock go through him when we first met. Sparks flew you might say. I didn’t really feel it at the time because I was dating his brother. Interesting story that my husband loves to tell, but I digress. Fortunately I married the right one. He promised to show me fireworks every year and so far he’s been true to his word.
Most of the time lately it has been the safe and sane ones that we can shoot off in front of our house but we have seen them at the Giants games as well. One year we went to Lake Tahoe with some friends and watched them being shot off over the lake. Wait, was that with hubby or his brother? Or was that the other guy I used to see? Oh well, whoever your with, watching fireworks is a fun date.
Festivals are great dates too. We have a big one near us every Labor Day weekend, the Millbrae Art and Wine Festival. There is something fun about wandering up and down the street with a glass of wine (or beer) in your hand. We don’t go every year but as you can see by the glasses I’ve collected we’ve been a few times. The last one was in 2019, just before the pandemic hit. They didn’t do it of course in 2020 but I think by last year they were running again. We didn’t go.
Our own city, San Bruno, used to have street festivals but they were never as big as the Millbrae ones. Bayhill is a shopping center and they had a champagne festival one year. Fun fact, Bayhill is right by the YouTube headquarters.
And just because I’m trying to keep with 3 ideas for each post, Fishing is another idea for a date. I know my husband likes to fish but I’m not big on camping (you notice I didn’t include that on my C day) so we really haven’t gone fishing much. I can think of two times though. Once was on a camping trip shortly after we got married but before we had kids and the other was on a boat with the company he was working for.
I can’t remember whether he caught a fish or not but he got a certificate for being there! That’s me in the background with the Pittsburgh Pirate’s hat on. Maybe I don’t like fishing because I am a Pisces and it’s like I’m capturing a relative? Nah, can’t be that because I love to eat fish!
Okay, that’s about it for F. Not bad for kind of doing it on the fly, huh?
