We were all up nice and early today. I was, as per usual, up to get to work.
Susan and Epril were up early because we were having the dirt in front of our house along the road sodded with grass today. They rode out with Ron (who kindly supplied us with a ride) to the place that sells the grass turves to pick up about 2,000 pounds of 8 x 8 inch squares of Bermuda grass... only 2.5 pisos each, installed.
The grass is now down, and well... lets just hope that it "grows into the part" because right now it looks a bit like a lumpy checkerboard. (I recommended that somebody get one of those big rolling drums to flatten everything out, but people just looked at me funny. Obviously they've never heard of such a thing.)
It was Epril's and my first anniversary today. We decided to have a party to celebrate the occasion, which was held at the swimming pool of Basamanggas Resort, where we were married. Epril bought me a nice shirt for as a gift. My anniversary present to Epril (and myself) — a new camera — unfortunately was delayed in its arrival from America. (Mike Bird was supposed to be back from Ohio before our anniversary, but his mother's health problems delayed his departure/arrival by more than a week... perfectly understandable. He'll be here next weekend.)
Anyway, we had (as usual) tons of food including the standard sacrificial swine. Everybody ate and swam and sang karaoke. I'd say about 25 friends stopped by throughout the day to wish us well and have a bite to eat. We had a lot left over! That's a first for a party that I've put on.
Anyway, we've got photos.
Purple for both of us.
I like this photo: Everybody is so excited.
People stopped by, congratulated Epril and me, ate, had a swim, and then went on their way.
