Another visit to 1979 -- 08/30/04

When the Sunday Brunch e-mail arrived yesterday (after I had already written and posted an entry) I knew that I had just found my Monday entry.

About two months ago I posted an entry about our wedding and then I posted two entries about our trip to England and I said I had one more London installment to write, but then I was busy (so what else is new?) and then I was rearranging my den and the scanner had been put away during the furniture shuffle (which actually included stuff like repainting the walls, etc.)... and then we had a grandson visit and then there was JournalCon and here it is late August... So I can use Sunday Brunch on a Monday as an excuse to finish off nostalgia for England twenty-five years ago...

1. Indoor or outdoor weddings?
Nancy and I had an outdoor wedding. My son Adam and his wife Leah also had an outdoor wedding.
2. How many wedding have you been in?
In? As in a participant -- groom, best man, usher, witness, reader -- seven.
3. When you were married (or if there is a wedding in your future),
what type of wedding did or would you have?
Had a fairly informal outdoor wedding that we designed and wrote ourselves (see question 1).
4. Have you caught the bouquet or garter?
5. Tell us about a funny, scary or memorable wedding moment.
Go to either (or both) of the links for question number 1; for me those were both very memorable weddings.

(If you're new here, here are links to part one and part two.)

Nancy is a tennis player and a big tennis fan -- and since we were in London in late June and early July, we had to visit Wimbledon.

On television you see the big matches -- semi-finals and finals -- but there are a lot of courts besides Centre Court -- more than a dozen (I think 18?) and during the early days of the competition, they are busy all day long.

This is Court 6 and that is Nancy standing on the right side of the picture.. 25 years and 2 months ago.
And this is me on Salisbury Plain with Stonehenge behind me. Now that was an awesome sight. We saw architectural marvels and fascinating historic sites -- St.Paul's, The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Winchester Cathedral, Salisbury Cathedral -- plus the British Museum and the Tate, etc. -- but Stonehenge is just incredible.

Just imagine -- those huge stones transported and moved into position and put into place and piled on top of each other all without power equipment -- without even wheels!
And, just to show we really were there together...
Stonehenge Salisbury Plain Salisbury Cathedral

In fact, I think I will close this entry with another Stonehenge picture...
