awesome!!!!!

that little speach about bursting hearts and the nearby sound of her dress really worked, then huh?

lol.

ya know, for some reason, i was thinking of you tonight as i drove in to work. your karma yesterday probably triggered the thoughts.
i was thinking how strangly nice it was, the longing that you felt when she was away. you're in the zone. you're really living, man.

and now it's even nicer to see that she knows you, and helps to fulfill you.

it doesn't get better. enjoy this.

and report here frequently...

We are cooking stuffed salmon wllington, fish stew, portugese cod and strawberry cream puff pastry. It should all be happening next week. I am really looking forward to it.
That's a great gift. Congratulations on choosing such a wonderful wife Have a great time.

No - she is not a great fish eater & shellfish are a definite no no - the menu is based on my ideas. I really want to know more about cooking fish so I mentioned that and some ideas about dishes I was interested in. The pudding is in for the boys (& DWs) pleasure.
