More pic-spam

Why? Well, because I still have photobucket.com up, and the way my life has been going recently I might never get another chance to spew pictures at you. Just some family pics from, or in some way related to, the wedding:

The Happy couple at the "I pronounce you" moment:

My father and I; I'm the one in the costume.

My uncle Charles is a retired career navy man. His brother, who passed away a few years ago, was an Air Force vet. I always wondered if they got into fights over it ... In the center is my brother Jeff, the hippie, along with his wife, Cathy.

My sister Tracey with her daughter -- don't look into Isabelle's eyes for too long! You WILL be enchanted.

Chopper the cat, my guest while the happy couple was on their honeymoon. Mostly I included this picture to ask the question, Why would the people who owned the house before me put carpet in a kitchen? :-)

Poor you - cat sitting - I thought you were allergic?? Cute kitty though. Nice photos - thanks for sharing.

I -- I -- a -- achoo!
I am allergic, and so is Jillian; but I'm also a dutiful dad, and she's a cat lover, so we said yes. On the night Charis returned to take the cat back I started doing laundry and cleaning floors ...

Aww nice pictures , love the outfit!

the outfit
Thanks -- I dropped 10 pounds to be able to get back into it! Congratulate me, I've only gained two of them back ...

More great pics - and boy is that cat shiny!
Oct. 27th, 2006 05:39 am (UTC)
Well, I had just finished polishing him ... :-)

It's lighting, mostly, but Charis does take care of his coat.

my mom's house used to have carpet in the kitchen. i think it was a 70s thing.

The carpet was there when I bought the house in 1988; it's certainly possible it had been there for a decade before that. The part that scares me is that everything in the house dates back at least that far, including the furnace ...

A person named Fred Markey scratched the date 1879 into a garage wall, which makes it one of the older homes in town. They told me it was built in the 30's when I foolishly bought it. Bleh. I like new, lower maintenance homes.

Don't you look like your dad? Actually your uncle and your sister look like your dad too - a definite family resemblance. Isabelle is gorgeous - what a little charmer she is going to be!

As for the carpet in the kitchen - yeuch! And houndstooth carpet? It looks like the lining for someone's raincoat I'm afraid. Don't you think you could justify replacing it with even just cushion-floor or similar on the grounds that it will be harbouring cat hair, and cat skin dust now - so it is in the health interests of both you and your daughter. See - a woman can always find an excuse for buying things!

That's an ace cat by the way.

Yes, the Irish/Cherokee family face certainly has been passed from generation to generation; Jillyh2009 has it, too. I also sound just like my dad, something I never realized until a few years ago. Also, we all share terrible sinus problems. *sigh*

I have all sorts of ways I could justify replacing the carpet; in fact, all the carpeting in the house should have been replaced many years ago. But I barely have the money to pay the utility bills, let alone repair or replace anything. Someday, maybe when I get my first three-book deal, I'll celebrate with linoleum in the kitchen and new shag in the living room. By the way, I love that description -- the lining of a raincoat. :-)

Chopper's a cat who likes to explore, jump and run. A LOT. How Charis can stand it in her apartment, I don't know.

You know, I think you complained about your glasses once, but I don't think they look bad on you.

Teehee, hippie brother...Sorry, it was amusing....

Carpet, in the kitchen? Were they feakin' nuts?
Oct. 27th, 2006 05:37 am (UTC)
carpet in the kitchen
Oh, that's not the worst of it -- the same carpet's in the *bathroom*. There's only one room in the entire house that's not carpeted: the downstairs sewing room, which has been my bedroom for several years but recently became my office. It has hardwood floor. I'd like to put linoleum in my kitchen and bathroom, but I've got that whole no money thing going on.

Thanks for the compliment on the glasses ... well, sort of a compliment ... :-) My biggest problem with my glasses is that I just don't like to wear them. I'm getting of the age that while wearing them I have trouble seeing things close up, but I'm too stubborn to get bifocals, so I'm constantly whhipping them off, Giles-like.

Yes, my brother was once a full-on, stereotypical hippie. Now he's a home owner and factory worker, hippie-like only in his looks and taste in music.

1. Is that West Noble's auditorium room I spy?? My NEPHEW (gawd, that makes me feel OLD!) had his reception there several years ago.

2. Your daughter takes VERY good care of her BEAUTIFUL kitty! Such a shiny, healthy coat. Hope your allergies didn't bug you too much while kitty-sittin'.

Re: BTW-
No, it's the Kendallville Convention Center, not far from the old Wal-Mart. But I suppose all those kind of places kind of look alike!

My allergies didn't bother me too much; I started washing stuff the evening he went back to his mama. :-)

Pretty pix! It's the groom's eyes which look enchanted, and you look very thin and handsome. Shiny kitty!

Yes, I remember kitchen carpet from the 70s. Ours was avocado green aka barf green. Yuckity. Your's is just delightfully retro, though.
Oct. 29th, 2006 12:26 am (UTC)
She called me thin! *blushes*
I'd never heard of the idea of kitchen carpet until I bought the house. It's retro now, maybe; but I'm sure it was quite modern when it was installed!

Just saying I enjoyed these pics too, and that I don't think I realized before how close to Fort Wayne you are. I lived there over twenty years ago, across the street from Johnny Appleseed's grave. (If I already told you this, blame mental pause. I know I mentioned Johnny to someone recently, but I'm not sure it was you.)
Oct. 29th, 2006 02:15 am (UTC)
I'm not sure if you've told me before or not; I'm continually amazed at the number of people I meet on the internet who used to live in this area, or at least know somebody who did. Of those who don't, I'm sure many would be amazed to discovery Johnny Appleseed was real!
