DH and I had a joyous celebration of our anniversary on Sunday. Fifty three years ago, shortly after we met and shortly before he left for the Peace Corps, I visited him in St. Louis and he took me to the Muni Opera in Forest Park, the oldest and largest outdoor theater west of the Mississippi. We saw “Meet Me in St. Louis.” On Sunday, our 51st anniversary, we saw the same play, in the last performance of the Muni’s 100th season. The play ended with fireworks and since it was the last performance of the season, the entire cast, crew and audience sang Auld Lang Syne. And, of course, everyone sang Meet me in St. Louie, Louie with the cast during the curtain call.
