My sister got married yesterday in a no frills ceremony at the courthouse. There will of course be celebrations later, and the marriage was a long time coming. They finally decided to tie the knot there after trying unsuccessfully to plan a wedding that in the end was just too much trouble. Don't blame them a bit, there.
Congratulations to Joan and her new husband Dale, whose first introduction to me was when I arrived at the door and playfully flipped off my stepdad for teasing me. Welcome to the family.
