Here comes the bride ...

My oldest daughter Charis is getting married this coming Saturday! You should see the twins in their little three year old tuxes. I mean, the twins are three, not the tuxes. I, on the other hand, tried on my dress uniform for the first time in a year -- and will be eating nothing for the next five days.
I'll likely be a bit sparse on the internet for the next week, but rest assured I will put some time into the writing biz along the way. By the way, Charis' fiancee gave a wedding gift to me (a dowry?): my furnace is now up and running thanks to him, and just in time.
