Eighteen is porcelain **UPDATED**

The Goat is in possession of a mysterious list that advises him on the material with which each marital anniversary gift is supposed to be constructed. For example, the one year anniversary was paper (I got tiny paper mache Christmas ornaments). I suspect the 25th year is silver and 50th is gold.

The internet undoubtedly could reveal the mystery list to me. Due largely to my profound belief in hubris, however, I do not seek this knowledge.

The Goat and I were married 18 years ago today and this morning I discovered this venerable year goes to porcelain.

Despite my magnificent photographic skills, its difficult to see that the rose is porcelain (it is). Happy anniversary Goat.

I swear I can hardly keep my pants on.

UPDATE 7:10 p.m. EST Nov. 28, 2010: That ol' Goat had a little dark blue box for me at dinner.

I love my Goat when he gives me porcelain roses. I love my Goat when he gives me little dark blue boxes.

And I love him when he doesn't.

Congratulations on getting your Goat.

I spy a devil head walking stick behind the door.

EOB, do not read further;

Goat, a tip for the future, Corning Museum of Glass, search for rose on GlassMarket page.

Also a good road trip.

Way to go! Keeping a marriage and family together is challenging and takes a lot of work. You guys have done a great job. I hope I'm around to be reading your blog and congratulate you on you 36th!

My wife noticed that, from the rear, bending over the tub, I approximate a naked goat. I asked her not to milk me.

I raise a glass to you and The Goat.

Although I do not recall a "glass" anniversary, my lovely bride does have a birthday in her future. Thanks for the tip.

You're welcome Goat, I guess I was thinking crystal, but I see that one is past. And I also see by the Swarovski box this ain't yer first rodeo, well done.

May I suggest instead renting Herzog's "Heart of Glass"?

And if you haven't seen it, a quick jaunt next Spring over to Wade Chapel to ogle Tiffany's masterpiece,"The Journey of Life". On a sunny day like this was, beyond description.

Congrats. It's hard to believe it's only '92. When I hear those numbers I think the 70's at least.
It must have been cruel and unusual knowing there was a list and foregoing looking at it, you being a woman an'all. :-D
