    My weekend activities:Wedd'in, Mrs & Mr Ambassador visit!

    Well, quite the weekend!

Family utilized the empty bedrooms and family room couches. This weekend we had a

    WEDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    This is my mom and dad. They walked MY bride to the chairs! Then mom went over and helped my sister in law Elaine at the organ because Elaine couldn't see when to change songs. Then mom came back and sat with dad during the ceremony.

    Now trust me when I say this. I would have been bummed to find out Mrs and Mr Ambassador dropped by and I missed them. I was getting ready to change and we had to take Tess' truck with the gifts to their apartment as they were going to open gifts in front of family. A knock on the door, I get there and SHAAAAAZZZZZZAAAAAAMMMMMMMMM!!!!!! My dear friend Larry in the flesh with his bride. A perfect completion to a perfect weekend.

    God has been good to me. We left the hall to the sounds of tornadoe sirens. Tornadoe coming from North Judson to Culver (we live outside of North Judson), it passes over Plymouth (where the kids apartment is) and we find out later Sunday, my niece Emma who used Lou's camera to take the above photos (except for Larry and Randi and me) her town was actually hit by the tornado, my nephew Zach's town was actually hit and homes destroyed (his was spared). They all stayed with relatives in Knox and Hamlet so all were safe and sound. Wow, what a weekend! I did do some wood working. A nephew stayed at my house and I showed him how to use the pen wizard to embelish a pen blank. He left with a very nice pen of Clairo Walnut with spirals cut in it. I also finished in time for the wedding the pen stand for the kid's guest book. BUT, I don't have a photo of it! Randi does though. So maybe she will post it so we can see the ho hum design I came up with for the kids. Thanks for looking at my weekend activities. Sept. 5th, get to do it again with the oldest daughter, Fina (rhymes with china) except she wants to get married here on the farm, so, got a bunch of cleaning and building and cleaning and cleaning, did I mention cleaning????????

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Congratulations Jonathan, did you cry?
    Looks like a great time. Eric is a lucky guy, Tess looked stunning.

    So with two weddings this year will you becoming empty nesters or do you got more hiding in the corners?

    I remember wayyyy back in '81 my parents went from full to empty nesters in the space of 3 months. My brother joined the military, my sister got married, and I went away to college. Quite the abrupt change for them...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Wow thats what you call a weekend.

    Congratulations to all.

    Hey you clean up well looked pretty smart in that tux.
    I liked the Bride and Groom colors too. Not often one sees a mix of red as a contrast and it showed off well. All the best to the new couple.

    Glad to hear you all missed the weather. I only got to see about it on our morning news today. Now i know why my rain barrel filled overnight.

    Sounds like you got your work cut out till the next wedding.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.
    cheers

    Yes sir, I agree, God did bless us in many more ways than described above.

    Hmmmmmmm, the beard, my dad grew a beard for a centennial celebration our town had in '64 and never shaved it off. It was one of those celebrations that if the man didn't have a beard he got "thrown in jail" and the bond was collected and given to the town (a fundraiser of sorts). Anyway, I grew up with my dad having a beard when many/most didn't. Guess my brother and I both are either to lazy to shave or liked the look! Dad in the above picture you notice now does not have a beard. Maybe ten years ago now, dad is a colon cancer survivor but when going through chemo, radiation, the electronic device they had on him feeding through a shunt, he lost his beard, not a hair on his head ever fell out, but his beard and moustache disappeared and have never grown back. Oh well, like having him even without a beard! I shaved mine off a couple of years back and caught holy heck from Lou Ann, so in another couple of years it should be as long as Larry's, just takes me a while!

    Thank you Mrs. and Mr. Tom! I do not doubt one bit in 27 years they will be wondering the same thing. It was a beautiful ceremony in a beautiful setting, couldn't ask for a nicer group of people to share the time with, I am amazed all bills are paid and we have a couple of nickles to rub together to get a new crop of money started for Fina's wedding.
