Okay then!! Hahahaa...and that isn't half of the photos! I know you're blurry eyed by now but these are the main ones that tell the story. It was a beautiful wedding almost ALL planned out by Samantha. There was only ONE bad moment...Sam's biological father, ROBERT, danced the Father/Daughter dance, OK? Are With me? Samantha's mom, my daughter Crystal, remarried about five years after their divorce, to Tim...great guy, husband to my daughter, Crystal! Love him...Anyway...The mother of Robert (exhusbandbiologicalfather of Samthebride), BRENDA, went over to Everett (Sams new husband), and demanded to know WHY he ALLOWED Samantha, his new wife, to dance a Father/Daughter dance with TIM...Stepfather...The man that raised her...was there for her...I am so angry at that old useless woman...So hurtful!
Oh well...I'm trying to stay out of it... Sami can deal with her through her father Robert (bioDad).
We are SO tired! Can't catch a break...Larry's 94 yr old father is having sort of elective surgery on an aneurysm at the top part of his heart. I say elective because it's dangerous. He was told how dangerous but chooses to have it anyway. He Could live another five years without it or leave this earth tonight if it burst. No way to tell..so...January 7th...We have to have it done in Houston, Tx. The surgeon said he was his oldest patient...Long surgery...long recovery...IF he makes it without stroking out on the table or ending up a vegetable. We wondered if this was suicide by surgeon (lost his wife last year, married 70yrs). SO...please send prayer...he's going to really need it. We had the "talk" and he says it doesn't matter...he's had a great life and is ready to go IF all goes badly.
To top things off, Larry's down with the flu...a week now...it's just stress city around here.
Oh well, this too shall pass...
Well, guess I'll close for now. Sorry for being so late but it's been...joyful and interesting.
