....it was time to call it a day..
Last night, PH's eldest grandson got married. Would you believe we actually got out on the dance floor..and my sweet husband crooned " Unchained Melody" in my ear! It was lovely..romantic.
Here we were 77 and 80 years old...me widowed twice and him once. Lots of heartbreak and yet here we were ...helping celebrate a new couple just starting out..
It was a precious evening.
It went so well..and then an awkward moment arose.
There we were..dancing, lost in our little world of a beautiful song..the music ended and before we could get off the dance floor..
the DJ pointed us out and said into his mic..."How long have you folks been married??"
We looked at one another...speechless for a moment..and then I said.."Well...actually just six years but there are circumstances..." The poor man looked shocked and a little embarrassed. I don't even remember what he said. I just remember getting off the floor knowing that everyone there probably thought we were a very old divorced couple...who knows.
So...should I have said "Well..between the two of us one hundred and one years!??"
I sort of wish I had.
They had a photo booth and PH and I found our way into it. I ruined the first set of pictures by hitting the cancel button...so we had to go back when we found out and do it again.
The hat? One of many they had in a box there so I popped one my head. PH had a top hat on..but it fell off or something.
I LOVE HATS! :)
By this time we were beginning to wear down..fast! Shortly after these pictures were taken, we stumbled to the car and went on home..
Today went by in a blur of saying goodbye to his daughter who was here from Maryland for the wedding.
Since I didn't get to sleep until about 4 this morning...I am off to bed. It's been a long and hectic week.
The pictures are pictures taken of pictures because dummy here does NOT know know to get them onto the computer. So I took pictures with my camera and did it that way.
Ho hum! You cannot teach an old dog new tricks they say.
I now believe it!
I did a darn good job camouflaging my black and blue right cheek from an infection I am fighting. The doctor said NO MAKEUP and of course...being me..I obeyed him! :) HA!
I never get by with anything..so believe me, I will pay the price.
I just could not go to a wedding looking like I'd been in a cat fight! At least the swelling has gone down.
I love weddings...and yes, I always cry. That was our Sunday.
Bless all of you for your support and kindness to me.
I am so blessed to have all of you in my life.
