Anniversary on a budget


Well, yesterday was our anniversary. Kathy and I have been married now for 31 years. Where do you go when you are unemployed, but want to celebrate? If you get the right emails, you can celebrate on a budget and get a good meal. We went to the "Historic Smithville Inn." We had buy one get one free deal, as I'm on their email list.

Smithville is a nice quiet town, not that far from Rittman. I think their main source of income is state route 585. The locals know what I mean. The weather yesterday made the dinner more of a treat. We both ordered creamed chicken over biscuits. We had plenty to eat and with the drinks and discount, the bill came to $11.03. And I did tip based on the full value, before discount, of the meal.

I hope everybody is having a super day!

No fried chicken? Their fried chicken is acceptable, but not like Barberton fried chicken. Happy Anniversary you two!

Happy Anniversary Cliff and Kathy!
I think the best part of the dinner was the 31 years you've shared.

Jen put it best - the 31 years you two have shared has to be the best part of it.

Happy anniversary!
