Afternoon Tea of 17 yearness

17 years ago yesterday, we got married.  So yesterday we decided to go up onto Dartmoor and eat afternoon tea and celebrate.  It wasn't great weather, but you don't need wonderful weather for afternoon tea.


.
Pp winding the dogs up.

One of the good things about the Two Bridges, apart from the vastness of the teas, is that there's a nice comfy carpet for sighthounds to recline upon.


The tea was far too big for two humans to eat.  Even with the help of the hounds we had a few bits left over to take home.


Walking off *some* of it.



There were too many sheep about for Brythen to run about.  Poor Brythen.  I took them to the woods today instead so they had a chance to hare around.

Happy anniversary guys. Seventeen years is definitely something.

It is: somehow we have avoided killing each other or flouncing off for a quite unfeasibly long time! :-D

Happy anniversary - and the dogs look as if they enjoyed your tea.

Thank you, and yes, they did. (Rosie refused to eat her proper tea that evening, but then she had eaten a whole scone with clotted cream so it's not surprising really!)

Happy anniversary! Brythen looks like that carpet was just made for him.

Thank you!

Brythen is not quite Rosie levels of tea-demanding, but he does appreciate comfort.

Thank you! Any excuse for an enormous tea is a good excuse, but on this occasion I feel we actually kind of had achieved something!

'Poor Brythen' seems to be the story of his life :) That looks a lovely carpet for rolling on, though.

Congratulations!

What a wonderful way to commemorate your anniversary; congratulations to you both! :-)

Glad the hounds enjoyed the carpet and the tea, and they got the chance to stretch their legs, eventually! :-)

We and the hounds were all very happy!

Happy anniversary! We're at 23--it's sort of frightening to realize that our marriage is old enough to have graduated college and struck out on its own.

Well THERE's an alarming thought. Or maybe not so alarming. Maybe these aging marriages are old enough to look after themselves without constantly clearing up after them...? :-D

Happy anniversary!

I love that shot of Brythen making himself at home! Now if only Max could be that relaxed when we go somewhere for tea...

I'd love to claim that behaviour is something I'd carefully taught him, but the honest truth is that's what he does whenever he's bored. I vividly remember his first and only dog-show, when he did that and was very reluctant to stand up when the judge reached him. I concluded that beauty-pageants were not his cup of tea.
