A Royal Celebration

My cousin Leslie celebrated her birthday today which also happened to be the day of a royal wedding. Did you get up at oh-dark-thirty to watch it?

Leslie asked that the women attending her birthday party wear a bridesmaid dress and the men wear their favorite wedding tie. Kathy, my sister Barb and I conspired to create a throne for Leslie. Gold paint, purple fabric, red trim, tons of fake jewels, an adjustable pink crown and a hot glue gun was all it took.

A posh time was had by all.

The birthday princess and her Queen Mum.

Sometimes it hard to tell the difference between the royals and the ladies-in-waiting.

Accompanied by my beautiful wife of nearly 31 years, I have finally reached my goal of becoming the least interesting man in the world. Kudos to Stephanie for bedazzling my tie.

Simply Smashing! Thanks for the write up from the sister who really, really missed being there!

I'm laughing, but not at your tie (mostly). This is awesome!

And no, I didn't.

Sorry you missed it. I'm sure you would've enjoyed it.


Please laugh heartily.
