Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)


Twenty-six years ago today, I was suited up in a type of tux.

As Jewish folks do, I entered this one room at the hotel, and met the rabbi and this astonishing, breathtaking vision in white, and we signed the legal documents that in the Jewish religion meant that we were being wed.

Following that, it's all a blur, though I remember shaking so hard I almost spilled the wine on us.

Next thing I knew, we were taking a carriage ride out into the local belt of woods, out in the Chicago suburbs. My new bride, still in her wedding gown, took the reins from the driver...

Seems like twenty-six seconds ago.

I'd do it again in a flash.

I'm the luckiest man in the world, and today is a day to reflect on that.

Thank you, dear. Thank you for all the adventures; all the cuddles; all the talks. We are a team!

Love you.

Bits and pieces:

I've slowly picked up and read a few more comics. They include Fables #138, 139. Am I getting hints that the series has an end-point?

Then, Fairest #14, 15, 16; a bit better than before. These are characters from Fables.

And then last night, I read the new issue, Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3, which I found to be pretty solid. I especially like what they did with Kaylee...

While my beloved was at one of her quilt guild meetings last night, I streamed a fairly bad movie that I was pretty sure wouldn't have interested her, The Last Stand, which was essentially a standard Western, with our former governor in a tiny town taking on the mercenaries of a Mexican drug lord and stopping him from escaping from prison. Pretty bad. Perfect for airline flights.

#34, 35

The last several days also allowed me the time to read a couple more books.

First was Osprey New Vanguard #197: M103 Heavy Tank 1950 – 74; these tanks were the ones that I used to see to emulate WWII vehicles in a lot of movies made during that period. It seemed like after that the movie-makers would actually seek out period appropriate vehicles to use. Anyway, I found this a bit boring. Pity.

Then, Osprey Elite #186: Vietnam Infantry Tactics. I've been enjoying the various books that detail tactics; this is one more of the same. I found this one to be a pretty solid read.
