Fifty Years Ago


We’ve been celebrating all year, partied with family and friends in May, and most recently sailed across the Atlantic to celebrate our 50th Anniversary today here in London, England. We chose Rules, London’s oldest restaurant for our celebratory dinner. Everything was fabulous from the cocktails, to the Steak & Kidney Pie, to the Sticky Pudding, to the service. And we topped it off with Cognac once we got back to La Gaffe. It’s been wonderful way to celebrate our fifty years together. And yes, we plan to keep on celebrating all year long, and next year, and for years to come.

We arrived in Maiden Lane half an hour before our reservation
So we made a visit to the Shrine of Corpus Christi

Then enjoyed a fabulous meal with very attentive service.
