Some of you have asked to see my wedding photos, and this is nearly the only good one we have, as our photographer (and I use the term loosely), left a lot to be desired. The color has changed over the years and it was not good to begin with.
I could never open my eyes in the sunshine, and that day was no exception. The weather was lovely; hot, but not too hot, and low humidity.
I made my heavy lace dress and my hat too. It was crusted with seed pearls around the crown. You can read about our wedding and see another photo here.
The trip to the hospital tonight was pleasant. Mr. kenju has a new roommate, and he is a perfectly lovely gentleman of 76, who suffered a heart attack about 2 weeks ago. He is jovial, grateful to be alive and an interesting conversationalist. We all talked before my daughter and I left, and as we left, he and mr. kenju were chatting happily, trading histories and "war stories", as we used to say. Mr. kenju may not admit it, but he was lonely after we left each night at 8pm, and now he has someone with whom to share - and I am surely glad about that. The roomie announced that he was a sound sleeper and would not mind if mr. kenju snored (he will) or talked in his sleep. In our 43 years together, I have only heard him talk in his sleep once, so I hope he won't start now.....LOL
