We were going to get married in Florida in January but then he started a new job and he couldn’t get the time off.Â I had already ordered a dress appropriate for a Florida beach wedding.Â So we decided to do an Ohio beach wedding but we had to wait a while so I didn’t freeze to death.
We went up to a resort on Lake Erie.Â I picked an officiant from a vendor list based on her having the best website.Â Her wedding page was in between the reflexology and other energy healing pages.Â I knew I had to hire her.Â It was just us and Freckles the flowerdog.Â
Freckles was bored and laid in the flowerbeds.Â We had a handfasting instead of a more traditional wedding.Â The only hitch was that the officiant tied our hands together before the SO got the rings out of his pockets.Â He had to escape briefly to retrieve the rings.Â
Freckles was the star.Â She had a lace bandana and a white leash.Â Passersby congratulated her on her cuteness. She is also the queen of the photobomb.Â We had a photographer and occasionally she wanted a picture without Freckles and Freckles wasn’t having it.Â She’d jump on our laps and pose.Â We had to tie her to a tree to keep her out of pictures.Â Then there was howling.
I don’t have any pictures yet but I’ll post when I get the disc.Â Then
we changed clothes and went looking for something to eat.Â We didn’t find any decent restaurants around but we did find a soda fountain for floats while we were looking.Â We also found this.
What kind of town needs a permanent lice clinic?Â We didn’t get out of the car in that town.Â I love the email on that window.
We ended up back in the lodge for dinner.Â Obviously the surrounding area is dicey.
Actually I think it’s a sign of a fairly well-off town. You know, the kind where people can afford to pay someone to deal with that kind of nastiness. There’s one in our town – very pricey! – and I was sorely tempted when it hit our house. Because, sadly, being clean and educated doesn’t prevent you from getting lice. ~shudder~
Looking forward to the pictures. What did Z say when she found out she wasn’t invited? This ought to be priceless!
