Wedding Date Set

Whose happy?

July 3rd, 2013, 9:30 a.m. Bill and I will be married at the Sussex County Courthouse in Delaware by Justice of Peace John Brady.  Our dear friends Jack and Judy Dawson will be our witnesses.  

Folks, The Day is finally here.  

Here are a few more short video clips I took this morning of all the wonderful folks at the courthouse this morning.  We arrived at 7:15 am and didn't complete our paperwork until three hours later but we didn't mind.  Look at these videos and see the happiness.  Not one person complained about waiting.  As for me and Bill, we've waited 49 years, what's a few more hours?

Next up, a complete video of our wedding.

The following are some videos that I took this morning with my iPhone.  Can you detect the unbridled happiness?  Who can anyone say this is wrong?

  1. What a wonderful day! It's so refreshing to see a group of very happy people on what is surely an historic occasion.

    I never realized it would take three hours to complete the paperwork.
    Of course, I've never been married and probably never will........But I'll consider all offers....and I'll take all cummers.....

    Wow, that didn't exactly sound right, did it??

    1. Jon,

      We didn't realize it took three hours until we left and noticed that the time was almost 10:30. We got there at 7:15 am. Once we got in to see the clerk it only took about 15 minutes. Most of the other time was waiting in line plus she was interrupted a lot by phone calls.

      So you'll "consider all offers.....and take all cumbers?" Jon, I'm shocked. SHOCKED!

    1. Dr. Spo,

      I bet there hasn't been that much laughter in that marriage bureau since before today. Everybody was relaxed and HAPPY! Even the folks who work there were happy for us. Didn't detect one scintilla of disapproval or hate. Plus we made two good friends on the level of you and Someone when we met Bob and Paul. Now I know TWO doctors. :)

    1. Karen,

      This time tomorrow, I will be a "married man." A term that I will definitely have to get used to.
