My daughter is getting married today!

Her wedding was scheduled for this past Sunday, with a big party in a catering hall, a gorgeous wedding dress, and dancing and open bar for 150 guests, but, you know we certainly weren't going to put our friends and family and the people who cook and clean and serve and the photographers and florist and musicians and everyone they love at risk.
Melanie and Brian are loving, mature and caring people. They have weathered the loss of their jobs to the Pandemic, loss of insurance and fear that they won't be able to get insurance because of he who shall not be named.
So today, in our backyard, they will be married by my boss, a NYS elected official. We ordered a ridiculous amount of food from a local family owned Mexican restaurant ( he had to permanently close his other restaurant, which was our favorite) I'm going to make some margaritas and we will celebrate.
Pleae join me in wishing them a lifetime of happiness, love and good health
They want a Biden presidency as their gift, so let's get out the vote!!

11. Congratulations to Melanie and Brian!

My best friend who stood up with me when I was married in 1985 recently attended the wedding of her daughter and only child via Zoom. My friend lives in California and her daughter lives in Atlanta. No way was anyone getting on a plane.

It is so sad that these wonderful celebrations for so many people have had to be done so differently than planned.

I hope you all enjoy the backyard wedding and the weather cooperates!

21. I, too, voted early as a prescient gift to the newly weds -

and as a gift to myself on my 78th birthday today. It is said that rain on a wedding day is good luck. Let's rain hell on Trump and the sun will shine more brightly on your daughter and son in law and the rest of the world. Congratulations!

42. Thank you!

I’m a fortunate healthy 78 with reasons to live long and well. One reason being to see our country being back in responsible, sensible, science believing, caring, truth telling, Democratic (big and small”d”) hands. Another reason being to see the orangest and biggest perp walk in history.

22. Sent their gift over a week ago. Hopefully it arrives the first week of November.

My husband and I eloped. We had 54 years together. Love does not need all the bells and whistles at the start. They can throw a big reception every 10 years for the next half century if they want to. Blessings.
