Three Days of Stress & Relaxation - A Wedding Under The Big Tree

Today's post will be very short as we are making last minute preparations for our son's wedding to his beloved under the afternoon shade of a giant pecan tree at a classic southern venue, Vinewood Plantation  near Atlanta. The groom is fairly relaxed, the groom's father is keeping it together so far, the groom's mother, as always, is a rock and the bride - well - my son said last night he couldn't really find the words. He just knows he is marrying the girl of his dreams. This is my first wedding in the modern era, and things have certainly changed. No more cake and punch in the church basement! But I must say here that I am so proud and thankful for all of the family and friends that have gone beyond the call to make this a once in a lifetime event for Lance and Tara.

Last night, as I was making out various last minute lists and talking and texting my son about this and that, I thought back about my own wedding to the most amazing woman who came into my life and changed me forever.  And now I think I finally understand what my mother meant when she said - One day you will understand. As they watch from another time and another place, Juanita and Chester will be so very proud.

Video Artist of The Week - Another fine British import - Corrine Bailey Rae. With a fresh take on jazz, pop and soul, this unique singer brings the right vibe to every tune she lays down.

Travel Quote of The Week - "My wife says I never listen to her. At least I think that's what she said." -anonymous

Life Goes On,
