Well, we’ve been traveling, so I have an excuse for not posting in a while.The trip to Naples, FL, to visit our friends was a wonderful as expected. We had plenty of time to catch up on each others’ lives and families, relaxed, had a couple of great meals at a couple of really good seafood restaurants, and generally goofed around.Now we are in Indianapolis, IN. We decided to come for a wedding for a young lady we have known for 25 or so years, whom we watched grow up, mature, and, now, wed. It was a gorgeous wedding and, as a bonus, we got to visit with several friends we left behind when we moved to Florida.We are now enjoying a few days with our two offspring. I even got to play one round of golf with my son before the weather turned cold and he had to go back to work.Monday, we begin our trek back to Florida to arrive Tuesday evening. Get back to the ‘ol routine, dontchaknow.

As promised, here is a follow-up to previous posts (Wedding a Huge Success and John and Cara), here is the newly wedded couple, John and Cara Erickson.
As you can see, the bride and groom dressed in Middle Eastern attire. The wedding was held at The Holly Street Bar & Grille, who specialize in “specialty” foods and entertainment. The meal was Middle Eastern and hughly delicious. I especially liked the parsley salad (I forget the real name for it).
It was a hot afternoon (I’m guessing about 98Â°F), but that didn’t wilt anyone’s spirit. The groom and best man wore knee lenght black jackets trimmed with a decorative border. The bride’s dress was breathtaking. It was custom made with all of those gold appliques.
And of course the real test of the success of a wedding is a yes answer to the following question: Did the bride and groom get married? Everything else is icing on the cake and this cake was well iced. I’m hoping that the parents of the groom have recovered as they spent lots of time and love in preparing for and bringing off the wedding.
Congratulations to Cara and John. May your marriage be blessed.
Well, as announced earlier, John and Cara were wed yesterday. When we get home I’ll post some photos and give some more details, but, I must say that everything went well. The bride and groom are married, families enjoyed each other’s company, the toast was great, the food wonderful, and the parents survived.
What could be better?
