Wedding Reception

28 Oct

As I’ve mentioned before, our grandson and his bride were married on October 11 in the Bahamas, and the reception was today at a country club north of us.

We are so pleased for both of them. The bride is a sweet and lovely girl. She works at Hopkins Hospital and is studying to be a nutritionist. Our grandson works for Baltimore Gas & Electric (guess what he’s going to be doing for the next week or so!) and is buying his own home. A very level-headed twenty-five year old – and a wicked dancer!

We really had a grand time. I even got The Squire out onto the dance floor – once – to do the Old Folks Shuffle.  The young folks danced to a lot of the same tunes their parents enjoyed, which was a lot of fun to watch, as even the grownups were out there doing the Funky Monkey and the Electric Slide.

Our daughter and son-in-law went to the same high school, as did most of their friends, so the groom and his sister grew up surrounded by the children of their parents’ friends, all of whom were at the reception. A grand family reunion.  I had met the bride’s mother at the shower, but had not met her father. They are a very nice couple – only to be expected with such a dear daughter.

Weather update: At the moment, it is very, very still, but cloudy. It is 64, and expected to go down to 55,  with the rain supposed to start tomorrow afternoon or evening. Considering how close the stream is to our house, I think I’d rather have snow, but I doubt that’s going to happen.

The really frustrating thing is that we have been unable to purchase flood insurance because “we are not in a flood plain”. Well fine. If we’re not in a flood plain, then we should be a very low risk. We did have one fellow offer to sell us flood insurance, but it would only cover items on the second floor. With a little luck, a tree will fall on the place.

      Actually, the dear boy is my grandson and I have NO idea how he got so old. Last time I looked, he was about ten.
