Thank you all.  Overall I would say this is the best looking wedding to which I have ever been invited!

Don't worry Macro, you look just fine.

The tradition of a best man has its origin with the Germanic Goths, when it was customary and preferable for a man to marry a woman from within his own community. When women came into short supply "locally," eligible bachelors would have to seek out and capture a bride from a neighboring community. As you might guess, this was not a one-person operation, and so the future bridegroom would be accompanied by a male companion who would help. Our custom of the best man is a throwback to that two-man, strong-armed tactic, for, of course the future groom would select only the best man he knew to come along for such an important task.

The role of the best man evolved. By 200 A.D. his task was still more than just safeguarding the ring. There remained a real threat that the bride's family would attempt to forcibly obtain her return, so the best man remained at the groom's side throughout the marriage ceremony, alert and well-armed. He continued his duties after the ceremony by standing guard as sentry outside the newlywed's home. Much of this is German folklore, but is not without written documentation and physical artifacts. We have records that indicate that beneath the altars of many churches of early peoples (the Huns, Goths, Visigoths, and Vandals) there lay an arsenal of clubs, knives, and spears. The indication is that these were there to protect the groom from possible attack by the bride's family in an attempt to recapture her

i am not worried.  i think the suit is hilarious, Been.  i am just playing along.

you know what is funny, tho?   i wore it to the company holiday dinner last year, and got nothing but good remarks, including from the wife.
then again, everyone there is an employee, so they might have been looking out for themselves.  Image

WOW queenie ~ that sure did NOT show up in my "Medusa" searches ~ Image ~ but if I can't be Medusa, I'm happy she'll be "amply" represented by gorgeous YOU ~

Actually, I googled grecian dresses and the ample part is really me but the rest is a stretch.  Don't tell anyone.

Real nice, Norse. What kind of soda pop will you be drinking on this special day?
Note to the other guests: Please keep an eye out for attempted underage drinking.

Sorry I'm late, after all this time, we got unexpected company. I'll be in and out as these things go.

I can't find the chat button.

Butterfly, I'm soooo sorry.
