I have caved in an ordered pizza tonight. My apartment is stifling and the Safeway seems oh-so-far away. I have coupons from the Entertainment book, so I am getting 2-for-1, which is a pretty sweet deal. I will not have to plan meals all weekend now.

I always thought the Entertainment book was called that because the coupons are typically for restaurants and entertainment venues. Since I have been together with Joan, I have discovered an alternate reason for the title: the entertainment that comes from saving piles of money.

I had owned Entertainment books in the past and found that each year I was desperately trying to use enough coupons to justify the expense. With Joan it is like a game. We see how many great restaurants we can eat at and save. And we have saved piles. We have dined at some of the finest restaurants in both Calgary and Vancouver and paid little more than we would have if we went to Denny’s (not that there is anything wrong with Denny’s).

So a big thanks to the folk at the Entertainment book for taking care of dinner tonight, and a big thanks to Joan for teaching me the proper way of using the book. It is just one more item in the long list of reasons I love her so much.

That was neat to find out that you and Joan use the Entertainment book so creatively, because Uncle Dan and I do too - we get it every year and it leads us to all kinds of neat places and pleasant evenings out.
