Happy Anniversary Mrs. C

Happy Anniversary Mrs. C

Another re-run

Today is my fifth anniversary of wedded bliss with Mrs. Cranky.  We married on 12-11-10…Mrs. C is a numbers nut, she chose a date that is easy to remember.  What memory hits me as I think on this date? 

That was the date of my second wedding.  Is that wrong to remember that day?  Let me explain.
That wedding was the day after Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving Day was our rehearsal dinner.   Some 25 guests that Cranky was expected to pay for.  Not a big deal except Cranky was and is a man of little means.  I barely had enough money to pay for the wedding, we were counting on gift money to cover the honeymoon; the rehearsal dinner was a crap shoot.  I figured I would put it on a card and hope it did not catch up to me until after the honeymoon.

When the bill came, over $800, I pulled out my card.  My brother Chris stopped me.  I must have had a certain look on my face, a look that said, “I sure hope this clears.” Chris simply picked up the bill and said, “I got this Bro…let me feel like a big shot.”
I did let him feel like a big shot, though I don’t think anyone knew of his gesture.  Probably not even his Misses. 

How does this tie into my fifth anniversary with Mrs. C?
My first marriage, Chris was my best man.  A black tux and brown shoes foresaw the direction of that union.

My second marriage, Chris stepped up to save me the embarrassment of defaulting on my own rehearsal dinner party; also an unsuccessful union.
Third time around, Chris, now a judge, led the service and pronounced Mrs. C and myself “Husband and Wife.”

I never thanked Chris for his largess on marriage number two.  I think I will make it up to him by making the union he presided over a successful one!
Happy Anniversary Karen,
I love you!

  9. Congratulations and happy anniversary! Being someone's first love is cute, but being someone's last love is priceless.

    My husband and I got married on Thanksgiving Day. Las Vegas, November 23, 1989. All the turkey dinner places had long lines, so we had Chinese. :-)
