ON THE BACK BURNER

March 21

Wedding over but not the celebrating. The wedding service went really well. I am waiting for the video and for the pictures, so I can share some of it. The bride was gorgeous, her dress perfect. The groom was dressed for success: vest, tie, the works. He looked great. It did not  rain. Actually, it was cold.Since the bride and groom thought of every detail, we had blue fleece blankets to wrap ourselves in. If it had rained, they had clear umbrellas ! I haven't been to such a free feeling,happy,no diva's ,no stress celebration like this, in years. It was two families,coming together to make sure that their kids had the greatest day of their lives. There were no orchestrated wedding planners , no band,or MC, just the family doing their thing. The brother  did the sound system and live guitar    during the service, and the play list. Dad did the video. It was perfect. Everyone danced, ate, drank, ate some more and had a wonderful time. I think that besides the wedding , it was that most of us have been dormant for almost 3 years. We exploded.I had to remind myself that the kids aren't really kids any more. They  are grown up,productive adults with bright futures ,good manners,a sense of family and their culture. On the whole, I'd say that the grandma's did good, the mom's did good and these kids will do good.Amen.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
