Who Are These People and Why Are They All Getting Married?

I am off for my fourth wedding since June, this one in the Shenandoah valley. The young man involved is the brother of this bride, and of course inquiring minds want to know if the costume will make a re-appearance.

I don't think so. I've met his fiancee but once, and she impressed me as being a sweet, soft-spoken little thing (what tempted her to hook up with a gangly goofball like my nephew Bruce is the million-dollar question). However, she's a Virginian. My experience with Southern women is that there are things up with which they will not put, and I imagine a groom in a gorilla suit falls into that category.

But regardless of what the weekend brings, I will not be posting again until Tuesday.

Were any gorilla suits in evidence?

No. The reception was held at the American Legion post in Staunton and Bruce may have been warned that there were a couple of vintage Vickers in the attic.

Never piss off a Southern belle.
