Hey, Pam, what did you and John do on your anniversary this year?

Oh, well, I rode two horses, worked in the yard and blogged. John, uh, … did other things … in one of the shops … or both of them. I didn’t really keep track … or anything. He’s a big boy, self-sufficient. What do you want from me?

Hmm, how terribly sweet. Did you at least get each other presents? You have, after all been married for 21 years — yes, twenty-one whole years.

Oh, yeah, fer sure. An extravagant gift that we’ll enjoy all year: a quarter of a beef!

What? Isn’t your 21st anniversary the red meat anniversary?

We got married on April Fool’s Day …
