cha ching

Got a wedding coming up; checkbook is being hit hard.
Just found out we have another wedding coming up. Egads !

I am over-the-top happy that my beautiful, smart, daughters, (they take after me, but I have the humility) have found wonderful men with which to spend their lives but really girls, what’s wrong with elopement, I did it. Look where it got me. Shut up!

Funny how we didn’t want, or have, the money to spend on ourselves back then, and here we are, decades later, planning and spending for two weddings.
Hey… anybody got an extra advance kicking around so I can pay for these nuptials?
No..oh well back to writing.

When my husband and I got married, we both wore jeans, and we sneaked up the Calgary tower with a minister (so we didn't have to book it), and had her marry us 500 feet in the air. My mum, dad, brother and his fiance were there as my husband's family were unable to make it. It worked out well, as the glass floor made for some great photos, and all it cost was $22 each for admission plus the cab ride there. Fun, memorable and cheap... like me! Wait...

Hey Feaky, we got married by a JP in his house next to a cemetary, he was head of the cemetary commission too. I remember looking out the window at the rows of stones thinking, wow, lots of people at our wedding but they're all dead.
Best part...married a really nice guy.
Worst part...no gifts.
