It was actually her birthday, and I think the anniversary well wishes came from @mreams99 commenting that it was his anniversary. Wires crossed, but no harm at all. Now, the answer to the burning question is I have been married 44 years. Yes, I am the victim of being a child groom married off by gypsy parents after losing an election bet. And, yes, the meal was quite good.

37 yrs here....shouldn't have done that first marriage thing, wasted a good 10 yrs on her....BUt if I read her obituary tomorrow, I'd say....Hey, how about the Cubs,think they got a chance this year?

This year’s Birthday gift to myself. I’m not sure what colour this is, so I defer to the brain trust of this forum. I was so frantic, I took photos as soon as I ripped them from the box. Lol! No clean up. I definitely got lucky on this acquisition.

I have checked several sources and find them being called both Mahogany and Ravello. I guess you get to choose their color. Great looking pair.

Thank you Sir! That’s what my research discovered too. I’m happy with whichever they are. This pair is suitable consolation for not getting hold of any Colour 4. Lbvs!

Wow TC. That is a really unique color. Man, you really hit the rare bird lottery with those. Very nice.
Thank you Shawn. I definitely see the allure of the Alden LHS now, especially in shell cordovan. No one does the penny loafer better!
