Re: What's everyone doing on Memorial weekend?

Man, I had the worst Memorial Weekend yet! I had the NY steaks ready to grill on the new BBQ, the jacuzzi fired up, friends coming over all weekend, the works! Saturday I come down with the worst case of stomach flu, can't eat a thing yet. Watched my dinner guests tonight eat perfectly cooked NY steaks with a fantastic Cabernet and a wonderful strawberry salad. Life is cruel sometimes.

Re: What's everyone doing on Memorial weekend?

WHOA...its over. What a wedding! Thanks REW and LovesLife! Say , Retire@40. What an affair, even the weather cooperated! Party started on Friday rolled out the last contingent about 10pm Tuesday night. Slept real well last night.... 1 down, 1 to go.


I tried to post some pics of the Emerald Society and Retire@40 pinching the bridemaids but they all too large.

I've only been through one so far. Pretty lavish as it was back in my pre ER
days. As I recall everything was damn near perfect. Evem so, I was happy when
it was behind us.

With the number of nouns in that sentence, could you be a little more specific as to the object(s) of the pinching?

Re: What's everyone doing on Memorial weekend?

My first thought when looking at the enlarged picture was "Dang, she's cute, looks really happy, too!"

Second thought, "Wow, what a rock on her hand! My DW isn't seeing this pic!"

Third thought, "Hey, how come those guys in the back are wearing dresses?"

Congrats! You must be very happy!

Re: What's everyone doing on Memorial weekend?

Thank you all. The party started Friday, wedding Sunday, BBQ Monday, swept all the relatives out by Wednesday. Fog slowly starting to lift.

OK, got the pix routine. First 1 was a thumbnail...oops... But now somebody stop me!

The emerald society (piper and drummer) was really something.

Re: What's everyone doing on Memorial weekend?

Q: "What is worn under that kilt?"
A: "Nothing is worn...all parts are in perfect working order."

A fellow enters a pub in Belfast with a plastic bag under his arms.
The bartender asks him, "What might that be you're carrying?"
"About twelve pounds of semtex", replies the fellow.
"Glory Be! I t'ought it was bagpipes!"


Q: What is the difference between pipers and terrorists?
A: Terrorists usually have sympathisers.

Re: What's everyone doing on Memorial weekend?

For the benefit of an old phart father-of-the-bride, can anyone suggest a reason why a limo needs a mirror on its ceiling?






ps: For those wondering... Somewhere among the CDs, I have the under-the-kilt shot. Thankfully "it didn't come out".
