Greetings from Milwaukee

Dearest Friends,

We made it back without any problems and right on time.

We are, however, sorry to report the we newly weds have had our first argument.  Just who was going to carry whom over the threshold.  We just said, "Fuck it!", and the fight was over.  (Ric tried to "order" but to no avail.)  More to follow soon.

Gods speed and bonne journee to you all.

With all our love, Ric and Thom

LOL... I've got this image in my head of a scuffle at the door... ::)

Congratulations you two, I only wish I'd been there to share in your big day. I was there in spirit though, hope you knew.

Guys it was an honor being a guest at your wedding....  I am so pleased and proud for you two.  Keep in mind I do have pictures and will most assuredly share those with you.   Sure was great meeting the two of you and sharing a very special GATHERING with you and everyone else.  I got back tonight around 8 PM.  Big Kiss....Big Hugs :P :-* :D

As for who's caring who over the threshold....Pleasssseeeeeeee!  Who cares?  YOUR MARRIED! That's the main thing.......Wishing you many many years of marital bliss :P

Great meeting both of you guys in Montreal!

Just carry each other the threshold. That should be possible, no?

Wishing you many, many happy years together,

That look in your eyes the moment before you kissed?

I was all the way in back, and it physically pushed me back in my chair.

To see that such deep love is not only possible, but enduring... a person cannot witness something like that and remain unchanged.

Thank you ... thank you both ... for letting me see such an intimate, powerful force in action.
