    The 2nd Happiest Day in My Life

    I rarely if ever post something personal in here because it's, well, personal.........duh.

    However, the happiest day of my life was when I married my wife almost 45 years ago.
    She's been my best friend and companion and I can't imagine life without her.
    I was kind of hoping our son would find the same in his life, not because I was trying
    to mold his life but because of what my life has been with my wife.

    Well, last Saturday our son married the most amazing young woman I have had the pleasure to know.
    They are both 35, too busy to get married or anything but work until lately. They met about a year 1/2 ago
    and I guess it was instant attraction. They are fun to watch together, they did good.

    I am so damn proud of our son, he is the man I wished I had turned into 50 years ago.
    Smart, hard working and gets along with almost anyone.
    Last month he was promoted to the head of the quality assurance division of an aero-space company.
    She is an electrical engineer specializing in hospital systems. So smart she makes my head hurt.

    This is my favorite photo that was taken by one of the crowd attending the wedding.
    They are just walking away from the area where the ceremony took place
    and she is beaming from ear to ear and he is looking at his new wedding band
    like he is thinking "Uh oh.........I guess I went and done did it folks".
    The professional photos won't be in for about a week.

    So......that's it.
    I am happier than I can describe. Pleased to death for both of them and hoping for a grandchild someday.
    I'm 72 and no grandchildren......what can I say?
    I need to spoil a child and then hand it back to the parent and go "Hahahahahaha....good luck. This
    is for those years you drove us nuts. By the way he/she likes sugar cubes right out of the box".

    Now I have to get back to the relatives.
    We have the wife's sister and husband staying with us until tomorrow
    and then they go back home. This is the first time I've had a chance to pop in here
    since the wedding. I will be back when things slow down a wee bit.
    I'm pooped............
    Remember:
    Life is short.
    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    Opportunity may knock ounce, but temptation leans on the doorbell.

    It's been my experience that children are a reflection of their parents. If he had turned out bad you would have been blamed. So don't be too quick to duck the credit.

    Now, all seriousness aside, the caption for that picture should be:

    Him: "It's so shiny!"
    Her: "GOT HIM!!!"

    Wish them all the luck and happiness in the world.

    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.
