I know I haven’t been posting much and for that I don’t apologize. Since we got back form Scotland I have since been hired on as a permanent employee at work and that means a couple things, First, as long as I can stay healthy until October first, my health care woes are finally over. Second, it means I am also working a full schedule and trying to come to grips with less free time. But it is a very small price to pay for peace of mind and the extra cash that come with a full schedule.
But there are even more changes for me, in less then two weeks I will marry my best friend and soul mate … Dawn. We have both been down the isle before and frankly the idea of a traditional ceremony seems a bit … well … not us. Also, we realize it’s not the ceremony, it’s not the party, and it’s not about supporting the Wedding Industrial Complex (WIC). It about us, our feelings for each other, and knowing that we want to spend our lives together.
So we sort of decided that since the state of Michigan requires that our marriage license be “solomized” (be careful who you say that in front of…), we would do it in whimsical fashion. So sometime next week end on Mackinaw Island Michigan we will be having a pirate wedding in order to signify the money we will be stealing form the WIC. They will not have our money damn it, we will spend it ourselves.
In that vain however I thought it would be amusing to show off my groomsman outfit.
What a dashing Pirate am I!!! and fearsome too!
