Family News

Miss BookMoot as been distracted by some family news of great import.
I'm going to be a MOB!

I need to give Hailey Abbott's The Bridesmaid to Entling No. 1.

Her parents were the proprietors of the Dove's Roost Chateau, one of suburban Boston's most popular catering halls. There young men and women came together to vow to love one another forever and ever. And there, mothers of the bride threw hissy fits over flower arrangements...

(Me? Oh dear, I hope not)

...fathers of the groom shook their groove thangs on the floor until their pants rode down.

(No, he seems much too dignified)

Grandmothers and great-aunts and first cousins once removed drank exceptionally large amounts of pink champagne and went onstage to deliver very, very embarrassing speeches.

(Well, maybe some French champagne.)
(also, thanks to the ent-niece for helping me find this quote)

It will be a grand celebration and great fun!

Apparently, the Lord of the Rings theme wedding will have to wait for Entling No. 2.

Wow, that's wonderful news! My girl was Eowyn at age 10 for Halloween, but I despair of having the LOTR themed wedding. ;-)

Camille said...

Hey Brian,
Entling no. 2 has an Eowyn dress (I made it) and she was Eowyn for Halloween too. She's in college.

Thank you ,everyone, for all your good wishes.

With 3 female entlings, I knew this day would come someday. Someday is here.
