ANOTHER CAPSHAW ANNIVERSARY
 
 I'm floating on air tonight because I am celebrating twenty three years of marriage to....

 My wonderful husband, Dwightie.........

 Last year we celebrated in the Fern Room at Cielo Azul, and tonight we are celebrating at the Fiesta Cafe on the south side of Cielo Azul....

Years ago there was an establishment called "The Fiesta Cafe" near my childhood home on Cerillos Road and that was so many years ago now, that I believe that these prices posted on "our" cafe are probably not too much off from what the prices were at the original.

 We are not, however, having New Mexican fare--we opted for take-out from the Whole Hog Cafe--barbecue!  The ambiance couldn't be more romantic and intimate though than in our own back yard......
 Although we don't seem to be completely alone...........

 I wonder why.............

I am so very happy to have been able to share the last twenty three years with this man......

And hopefully he feels the same about me.......(Picasso guitarist painting courtesy of Giancarlo)

And of course, no establishment calling itself "The Fiesta Cafe" would be complete without the presence of Zozobra himself................(Also courtesy of Giancardo)

So after twenty three years we head out to the future hoping to share many, many more......AND A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!!

THE ODD TALE OF "DIANA'S DUDS"
 
 A few years ago, I purchased a very darling, but, for me, a rather expensive red sun dress for over $100.  I loved the dress, and got lots of compliments on it, and searched on line for one like it.  I eventually ended up talking to the producer and was somehow mistaken as a store owner and my contact, who I think was Bahamian, told me I could purchase the same dress for $18.50 as long as I ordered at least six of the same style.  She asked my store name, and I blurted out:  "Diana's Duds".  A couple of days later, my summer wardrobe arrived in a big box addressed to DIANA'S DUDS--all for less than what the first dress cost me.  So, here is my inventory of my cyber-store:

This is a nice blue tones version with an interesting print......

This is the exact same print in much more vibrant tones...........

Here is a floral version in cream and yellow tones...........

These dresses are actually the same print in two different colors.  Unfortunately, the smaller more lively portions of the fabric are on the back side of my dress, but if you look at the fabric near my hand, you can see how it matches the lively look of Sisi's frock.  At $18.50 I could be magnanimous and get Baby Sister a dress too............

Another floral version in shades of pink...............(Zsa Zsa is dumb founded--as I suspect are some of you gentle readers)

Of course, after all is said and done, I still love my first dress best of all--but just think how much money I got to save my dear hubby by becoming the proprietor of DIANA'S DUDS.......................
