Dinner with Tony and Carol & Celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary.

The weather here as been really nice.  Most days the high is mid to high 70's.   Last week John and I visited the outlet mall and finally found some new walking shoes. Sometimes that can be an ordeal. John found a pair of New Balance walking shoes and is happy with them.   I was having difficulty finding a wide width shoe in sizes 5 1/2 or 6.   Last December I was diagnosed with MTP Snyovitis in my right foot and I have to have just the right shoes or my right foot kills me.  MTP Synovitis (Metatarsophalangeal Synotivis) is a common disorder caused by excessive stress where the metatarsal and phalanx bones meet.  The condition is aggravated by activity such as walking or any excessive stress on the joint.  Anyway, the doctor explained to me that the ligaments loosen and the joint may develop instability.  Oh happy day. In my case, the third toe and ball of the foot are affected. It can be very painful at times and and just darn inconvenient.  I purchased a pair of Skechers Sport walking shoes with memory foam.  I have walked in them everyday and so far I am very happy with them.  Usually before 30 minutes are up I have the beginnings of stinging pain in my foot but these seem to work.  Ok, enough of the medical stuff. 

Friday, October 9th, John and I had dinner with fellow fulltime RVers Tony and Carol at the Rib Crib. The food and service at the Rib Crib are great.  If you are in the area check them out.  We met Tony and Carol last month in Halstead, Kansas while staying at Spring Lake RV Resort.  We all just happen to be in Branson at the same time.  It was Carol's birthday so we were glad to celebrate with them.

John and I. 

Yesterday John and I celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary.  Wow, how time flies.  It seems like yesterday when we were two kids just starting out.  I am so lucky to be married to my best friend and sharing my life with him.  Thank you John for putting up with me all these years.  Love you. 

We decided to eat at Florentina's Ristorante Italiano.  We had eaten there a couple years back and enjoyed it so we were looking forward to it.  Unfortunately, the food wasn't as good.  Part of John's entree was cold.  The food was served so quickly it was apparent it was pre made and reheated.  On the other hand the service was great.

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
