The words this week Are                                                         OPERA. RECOMMEND. CHAMPAGNE. EXCITEMENT. SUNSHINE and JAM.

                                          An evening at the Opera.

It was during the eighties when my wife Rosemary and I attended our first Opera- a Gilbert and Sullivan "The Mikado". The tickets had been provided free gratis by a well-heeled business associate; However, The hire of the pretentious costumes was a wallet killer.

Rosemary my dear lady wife could hardly contain her excitement. Still, in her forties, she loved  to flirt a little and loved to be told she was pretty as she really was without a doubt despite mothering five sons

We had previously attended a champagne party in air-conditioned comfort but travelling along George Street in busy Sydney on a hot day in a traffic jam was something I would not recommend especially in a Taxi with faulty airconditioning
However it was mainly a great day, and to see my Rosemary so happy, made my day.
Women are the decorative sex, whatever they have to say, they say it charmingly.

I like the way you use the words in a real life story. I remember seeing The Mikado too, I'm a big fan of Jon English and went backstage after to get my programme autographed. Sadly I accidentally threw it away several years later when clearing out random accumulated stuff.
I do hope this is a true story. Even if it isn't, love for your wife drips from every word. I know you believe you were a lucky man to have her in your life, but I think it's safe bet to say she felt equally as fortunate to have you in hers.

Great use of the words!
