Shula’s Birthday

Map picture

To all husbands- do not forget your spouse's birthdays .....period ,it is worst than coming late at night and saying I forgot how time flies and worse than saying " honey today the dress looks great on you" ....

So I had a reminder on my Calendar but  I did not forget it anyhow.

It was supposed to be a windy cold day and I worked all around it, we started the morning having breakfast in a coffee shop we use to go and got pampered by the manager with extras here and there ( Not on the diet side but tasty)


As Shula was about to give me the “this is it?” look , I turned the car to an unknown to her road heading South rather than North the way home, “where are we going now in this crazy weather?” she asked , and I just smiled my best mysterious smile. and drove to the Old Tel-Aviv Port, once a regular small boat port and today an entertainment place with restaurants, market and bars.

Befor entering the Port Maket I let her feel the the wind and the rough sea as we like to do from time to time.


The Port Market is usually an indoor and outdoor thing , where you can sit in a restaurant , buy groceries, or get a good fish sandwich and sit outside with a bottle of wine or beer.

But today the dictated the rules and everyone was inside (did I already mention that our lives are dictated by the weather??)

So we got a bottle of wine, 2 glasses ,smoked fish and had a great time.


Mean time WE , I mean Shula did some shoping, dry mushrooms,organic vegies, olives and olive oil.


Although it was already around 2 PM we had no desire to have lunch due to our late breakfast ,the wine and the fish sandwich and I still had some plans for late afternoon which I was not ready to revile yet, so mean time we took a drive along the beautiful beach .


As Shula started to get comfortable with the way things are going till now and was ready to hit home I pulled the tickets for a Jazz in one of the small places in the Port.

One and a half hour of good music,dancing and zipping some more red wine was the great finale of this great day.


So do not forget the Birthdays ….even after celebrating them withe same women for many years.

Now I have to check my calendar to make sure it is marked for  2018…
