This is Chris and Amanda, the lovely girl he married. She is a very sweet girl and our whole family likes her a lot. We think they are going to be very happy together.
The two of them are pictured here at their engagement party. It was held in the hills above Corona and it was a very windy day. The tent they are shown in blew over when most of us were seated.
Dick and me. We were supposed to come dressed in Western Wear, but this is as close as we got. Dick in a hat somebody loaned him and me in a bandana. I think I did wear jeans.
I am getting to kiss the handsome groom to be. This was taken at the "rehearsal dinner" the night before they were married. Nancy and Charles hosted this affair, and it wasn't just for the wedding party. There were over a hundred there and the restuarant they love closed just for this evening so we could have our private party. It was a long drawn out affair and I was totally exhaused before the evening was over.
The bride and groom are cutting their wedding cake. What a lavish dinner this was. It was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Garden Grove and there were 250 people there. The most delicious filet mignon is what we chose and believe me, it was a good choice. Unfortunately Dick wasn't in the picture taking mode as he doesn't like to take photos anyway. There were so many people taking pictures and he didn't want to fight the crowds. I think we will have to depend on some other family members to get prints of theirs. It will give you an idea though.
Sorry I didn't get one single picture of me in my new suit, but I think I looked pretty good. One of these weekends I'll get Dick to take one of me when I come back from church.
I want to say, too, that I am so happy that so many of you tried my chicken stew and everyone liked it but Jill, who said it was a little bit too hot for their tastes. It's funny, but I didn't think it was hot at all, but those of you who don't like hot spicey foods (Im one of those people, by the way) might want to use just a fourth of a spoon, or none at all.........no red pepper flakes!
I'm still feeling dizzy and in fact have been quite nauseous today. Darn, I'm sure this will be my new normal.
Take care all of you.................I don't know what is going on about all these follower problems that everyone is worried about, all I can say is that I don't want to lose any of you. If I do, I will just stop blogging.
