Wedding Day

Wedding Day I can say that I had a bit of a headache. We should have had more drinkers If we planned to float the keg. I left in plenty of time...to be on time. I had my tuxedo complete with shoes. And, maybe those aspirin would do the job! Well she was upset...There's no such thing as 'on time'! Lots of pictures needed to be taken... This day must be recorded...not repeated! My brother...the Best Man...forgot his tux! He wore Robert's...another brother. I felt bad for him. I'll never forget standing up front Waiting for her to enter. Then they played the song. I didn't have a headache anymore. She was BEAUTIFUL.... Of course! I watched as she approached with her dad. He looked relieved to put her hand in mine. It was like a foreboding moment... But don't worry...It's all been good! I just wish she could forgive me For forgetting my street shoes! When we left the reception With me in my tux shoes, Johnny gave me his mastercard, "Put the motel on this," he said. Good thing - I had One Hundred Thirty Dollars to my name! We drove straight to our little duplex And spent the first night together... We were so tired, we went straight to sleep. We would have wedding cake for breakfast! The rest of the story is yet unwritten, But so far...So good! P.S.- 35 YEARS IN AUGUST

    Funny, that your poem is your happiest day...my own entry ("If...for instance") is the story of meeting my hubby for the first time....so we both think of those as happy days!! (Lucky US!!)
