What A Happy Day - Nothing Could Make It Less Than That

This afternoon, my wife, daughter, son, daughter's boyfriend, his parents, my wife's mother and brothers, and my brother's wife all came to our place for a BBQ. Little did my daughter know she had been set up. After we ate, she and her boyfriend took our 4 dogs for a walk. During the walk, he said something to the effect of "Hey wait a minute, what does Lucy have?" (Lucy is one of our Chihuahuas), he dropped to his knee, pulled out the ring and started to propose. He told us later, that Celina just said "I don't care what she has, let's get going". He mumbled this and  stuttered that and then just spit it out, that is the big question, and finally she was paying attention. All the while, 2 of his friends were nearby taking pictures of all of this. She said yes, and suddenly people from a nearby house were applauding. It seems the two young lady photographers had to ask some folks, nicely, to get off of their own lawn so as not to be in the pics and they obliged. They also stood watching through their window for the big moment and wund up being the cheer leading section. Very nice of them indeed!

Well, when the love birds got back to our house, we had the decorations and Champagne ready. Celina showed off her new rock. Everyone was happy. It was a good day all in all, what could make it stink - nothing at all no matter how bad. After all, it was her and his day. It was really nice for them and for the rest of us.

All the best,
