Today is my beloved Susan's birthday. I would make a joke about her age, but she sweetly informed me earlier that, while the first five or six comments were uproariously funny, it was wearing a little thin.
Today is all about Susan.
About a month ago, I asked Susan what she would like to do for her birthday. Travel? Go to a nice hotel downtown? Go to a spa? She said that what she really wanted was to visit the art museums here in town.
Am I lucky or what? If someone offered me the same opportunity, I might say "Let's buy some fire-engine red lipstick and go kiss Oscar Wilde's grave!" (Not that I am a HUGE fan--but who can resist Paris?)
But Susan opted for San Antonio. So today, after we stop by the gallery and help the new artist open up, we're off to see art. Our first stop will probably be The San Antonio Museum of Art. Neither one of us has been there for some time, so it will be fun. They have a great collection of Precolumbian art and some nice Americans as well. Then we're off to the McNay. This is one of my favorite museums in the world. It has some great modern pieces. The McNay was closed for many months while they built a new building and renovated the old. I can't wait to see it all! Finally, we will go to the Greenhouse Gallery, which is one of Susan's favorites, to look at contemporary art.
Somewhere in there we'll stop for lunch at Twin Sisters.
Then we'll come home and nap before dinner with family at Texas Roadhouse.
It should be a wonderful day.
I just want to say that I am grateful that Susan is. She makes my life so sweet.
