My little angels wedding day!



No we hadn`t had a row although it looks like it :o)) the photo was taken by an unofficial photographer (professional) Tee Hee! seconds after the official one had taken theirs, and it was "B" cold.


My speech commenced with me slowly pulling a single barrelled shotgun out of a parcel explaing that it had been used at my wedding to prevent me changing my mind and that it had also been in evidence on their day in case, too. Initially the audience didnt realise what it was. I presented it to the groom explaing that the stock was a collapsing one. And then having explained that this facility would stand him in good stead during his marriage, as it had for me! I collapsed it revealing a colourful feather duster which I plucked from the breech and handed to the groom, much to the hilarity of the audience! the speech got better from then on. The other speeches were great and far better than mine :o((

Well the bride looks very happy and so beautiful. Those are some fine looking hats too I dare say - something you don't see much of at weddings over here in Canukastan.

Clever bit about the feather duster.

Happy New Year!

Ahh Thats very kind of you Tana!I think that "decoration only hats" are unnecessary. I dont blame the canucistani women from not having them I know what the mother of the bride paid to have her hat made, and it had an even greater profit markup than boat bits! I could have run my boat on diesel for a year, (not quite tee hee) yea I know she was robbed :o)) Have a great day!

Awwww. Many congrats!

rob said...

Thanks Fuffy! I love her to bits but I though I would see less of her now she has a husband but I`m looking after the dog and she brings her husband home, and she is pregnant too :o(( so I guess the baby will be left on the doorstep while she continues her career. I hope it learns to swim early :o))Tee Hee

Fuff said...

Even bigger awwwwww. I bet you've got your fingers crossed that she will leave the baby in the morning, together with the pup!!! :)

rob said...

Hi Fuffy!
Mmm, well, I`m not sure, I think that my wife is keen but I`m a bit worried that it will curtail my time on the boat :o((. What to do! what to do? how selfish it is to have your children later in life as the Grandparents dont have the time left really to fully enjoy them by the time the baby is old enough I will be 70 and unless I am wrong that isnt really the time to start playing football at any level, but I guess dolls houses etc is OK :o)) but then again I wont be at the boat ! What to do What to do woe is me ! Tee Hee, I bet I`ll love it really? mind you trying to house train the pup is enough of a pain let alone getting her to walk nicely on the pavement she`s all over the place (terrified of cars) but it`ll come eventually? probably about the same time Im expected to play football. :o)) Ho hum! Thanks for popping in Fuffy, sorry to bore you.

rob said...

Oh fuffy I forgot, even much more bigger and best hugest hugs to you! :o))Tee Hee! oh and Fur too, of course.

Lovely bride ~ she's just beautiful! Congrats, Rob!

rob said...

Thanks for that jamie! she`s in St Lucia at the moment on honeymoon, alright for some eh, we went to Butlins at Cliftonville, 42 years ago(it was a bit like a boot camp, well worse actually :o)).) How are you feeling, when is the actual due day? Have you heard from "Toe in the Thames", hows she doing in government? she said that I would get a news letter but I guess she`s too busy. Take care!

Jamie said...

I'm suffering from pregnancy-related insomnia right now (1:00 am here), but overall doing well. Should deliver them mid-Feb, but who knows with twins ~ they do what they want! Our girl was appointed to the Senate spot which she was seeking, so it's v. exciting for her. I sent her an email nudge reminding her that you should be on her list, but you're right, she's a busy, busy lady! Thanks for being company in the middle of the night ~ you're the only person I know who's awake!

rob said...

So glad your OK! dont hesitate to call what ever the time!
Take care
Thanks for reminding "Toe in the thames"
Take great care!
