Well, Sara & Brian were married yesterday (and so were Kevin & Laura, but I couldn't go to both weddings). A dark cloud scudded by overhead during Sara & Brian's ceremony, but no rain fell. Afterwards we all ambled up to the dunes to enjoy hamburgers, barbecue, and lots of other fine food and drink, as well as good conversation, and, of course, wedding cake.
This afternoon I joined a bunch of folks at Deepwater theater to honor Marcie & Lou's newest arrival, little Charlotte. It was primarily a ladies' event, so several of the other guys and I stayed around for the good food, then repaired to the Pub for some beer and "guy talk." We laughed and carried on, but before long it was time to head home. Today the weather is just perfect -- sunny and breezy; not too cool, and not too hot (or humid). So I'll close for now and go outside to enjoy the rest of the day. Talk with you tomorrow.
