My daughter got married on Saturday

Postby Weetabix » Mon Nov 09, 2015 4:29 pm

We've been living in a whirlwind for three months, but the wedding and reception came off nicely.

The groom is the first guy to come around interested in her that I didn't want to shoot. He's a good guy.

The morning of the wedding, we found out the cellist couldn't play. Fortunately, my oldest daughter knows all the cellists in town, so we had another within 30 minutes. The music was very nice.

The reception was a trial since it was big, and I don't like noisy crowds. I'm quite exhausted.

Don't believe caterers about how much food you need. We have tons left over. I'm going to have to learn to love something that goes with club soda.

Congrats to the happy couple, and we wish them a long and happy life together!

Sympathies to the parents, I know how hectic the entire ordeal can be!

We married off three daughters in nine months, with the last two weddings one month apart. It was... interesting, in a medieval-torture kind of way. (Oddly enough, two of the three original couples are still together, after 20 years.)

That's a blessing. I've done it both ways, believe me, and liking your son-in-law is better than despising him.

Don't believe caterers about how much food you need. We have tons left over. I'm going to have to learn to love something that goes with club soda.
Lots of things go well with club soda. Scotch, for one, or lime sherbet if you'd rather. It's a good mixer.

At any rate, congratulations.

Congrats! It should be a good number of years before DD starts dating, much less gets married... but I hope to end up in your camp.

Splendid! Congratulations and best wishes all around.

Club soda is a nice mixer for Martini bianco. Lots of ice, chill the Martini, the soda and the glass, and add a slice of lime.

Son&Heir wedding shower was Saturday. Big day is right after fall finals in December. Looks like the jarhead is going to clear the killer "filter them out" Engineering semester. He'll be ready for a wedding and party after 4 months of Calc 3, Physics 200, Statics and Materials.

I was looking at the little kids running around it struck me as kind of sad, soon after you get them house broken they become teenagers, then when they get over that and start to make sense again, the leave for another state. Oh well, grand kids sooner or later for revenge.

Thanks guys. She's wanted kids since she was about 8, so I'm betting I'm a grandpa within a year.

She once said, "Are you going to do the same stuff with your grand kids that you did with us?"

Me: "Yep!"

Her: "Uh oh..."

I was an unconventional influence. Not bad, per se. But unconventional.

Make that new son-in-law a shooting buddy. If he ever starts to act up, have him hold up your targets down range while you shoot. :lol:

Necro!

She's in labor right now. 1 year and 9 months or so, so my initial guess was off. They found out the sex early - a boy.

Why do I have the feeling that the "occasionally" part has more to do with the parents than the kids? :mrgreen:

I once bought my 15 yr old hellion brother in law a BB pistol that shot metal darts. Wife wouldn't let me give it to him out of sympathy for her parents. I had lots of fun with it.
