Ricky and DD’s wedding 7-16-16

I decided to drop all of this onto one page…. It’s only been 3 years, right? 🙂

Partly Sunny Weather MotifIt’s cooler in the valley this morning than here, 53 rather than 58, but it’s clear there and here it’s overcast. It’s supposed to be pretty much the same today as yesterday, on the coast, but it’s going to get at least to the upper 70’s where Tempus and I are headed.

wedding boxYesterday started with a real blow. The alternator on the car decided to give up during Tempus’ Thursday night paper route, so we spent the early part of the day trying to find a part, a shop to work on it, a rental car or something. Nobody could get to it until next week, no rental cars available… oiyoiyoi…..

Tempus got back with the part and started working. By dark he realized that he wasn’t going to get it done in time, so we decided to take Amy up on her offer of a ride. He got supper and fell asleep and I worked on some writing.

wedding ringsThe shop is open today. Ruth and Stella volunteered to keep it open for us so we could go to see the kids get married, bless them! They won’t be taking plastic, just cash, because that was too much to worry with. Ruth has said that she’ll do readings, though.

We had such a great time, yesterday! I’m short of time today, so I’m going to get this out quickly and tell you about it tomorrow, but thanks to Amy giving us a ride there and back our kids are married and it went off, as Ricky said, “With the right kind of hitch!”

Today is a very busy day, too. We not only have to unpack things, but an old friend is coming to spend a couple of hours during a beach trip with her family and the House Capuchin’s Project Day is the afternoon, too. So, I’m going to go get to that!

071616 Kimberly Riley gardenI promised you a bit about the wedding in today’s newsletter, but I spent all day yesterday running around like a headless chicken! I *did* get the pictures edited, so I’ll put a few in here and then spend some of today writing things up. The photo above is Amor, Arthur, me, Tempus, then Ricky standing on one side of DD’s dad with DD on the far side of him.

Yesterday was long. We were tired. I got to see Arlys, a long-time friend, for a couple of hours, which just flew by far too quickly. I 071616 Amor&Pookadid several readings during the day and edited a lot of pictures between. House Capuchin didn’t do much yesterday.

Today Tempus has to finish getting the alternator back into our car, so we don’t have to depend on Jeanne’s. Bless her, she’s been driving us or letting us take the car for several days, now! 071616 Wedding01

…and one of the funniest things to me…. Folks were catching Pokemon at the reception and got pix of them with Ricky and DD!

Yesterday went. 070716 Flower3Not much went on except the alternator is in the car and it’s working, so Jeanne has her car back! I didn’t do anything useful or at least it felt like it. I was dealing with a hurt foot. I’m not certain what I did, but I sliced it open on the outside edge some darned how. I limped all day yesterday and really didn’t want to move around much. It’s better today.

More wedding pix. The kids are gamer and sci-fi nerds, so it really showed at the reception. Even at the end of the wedding ceremony, they recessed to the Star Wars Imperial March!

Today, obviously, we slept in. I’m a the shop, now. No we’re not open today, but it’s a lot easier to use this computer for newsletters. Tempus has to run the old alternator in to Newport. I have a bunch of writing to do, updates mostly.

One last batch of pix

Some of the pictures that didn’t make it to the newsletter…. 

We had breakfast with Ricky and his groomsmen once we were in Tigard. These were some of the flowers and bees we saw while waiting and there’s one pic of the boys.

The Wedding – It was a lovely ceremony and ended with not the usual “cackling hen” recessional, but the Imperial March from Star Wars!
