Got a telephone call tonight to do an outdoor wedding at a local marina on August 27th. The wedding will take place in a large pavilion, right next door to a very popular restaurant. Yeah, I know, I'm fully retired, but I couldn't pass this one up. No it wasn't the pay that lured me, and in fact, the job is a freebee. The call was from my son. He is marrying a very intelligent, beautiful lady that is exactly one year younger than himself (they share the same birthday.) and I couldn't be happier for them. I'm a proud papa!



Cheers,

Gary cool

Gary ... congratulations to you and Carol and to your son and his fiance ... I am glad to see he looks more like his mom than his dad ... wink
he has a very fine taste in women ...
The great thing about being the father of the groom is that you just have to shake hands and make sure people have a drink ... grin

Tony, I know you're not gonna believe this, but he looks just like his dad, and even Carol will admit this. smile I have been told I was a hadsome guy when I was young.I guess the years haven't treated me as well as I would have liked.;)

Here's a photo of the old man and his daughter taken in the radio station where I did news casts and recorded voice overs for car commercials.



Here's one from 20 years ago, when I still had a fair amount of hair, and fewer wrinkles.



Now, when I got married, I looked like I was 15 years old, and Carol looked much younger.

Congratulations Gary,
Lovely looking young couple.

You must have been married for quite a number years , you look like a couple of kids in that wedding pic.
We sure did get married young back then. Haha

Thanks everyone. Riki, we were very young, I was just 21 and she was 20 when we got married, 54 years ago this coming September. My son is now 50 years old, his fiance is 49, but they both appear much younger.
