Will you steady me? Love to dance with you.
That is the question I had to ask the pretty women at the recepton and dance. No problem with Leone , daughtrs and granddaughters or even great grand daughters but for any of the others I had to be sure they knew they were about to dance with an old guy who doesn't have a lot of balance. Kind of hard dancing with a walking stick.
Since the ceremonies were held in the bohemian alps, look it up, about every fifth dance was a polka. Had to sit those out but would have loved to have been on the floor with the dancers. Always loved it when the polka was finished you could look at your paartner and both would have a huge smile or even laugh.
Bride was beautiful, the couple are a little different in size. Grandson is very tall while she is only 5'2 but they still made a great looking couple.
Grooms attendants, fathers and grandfathers were in tuxedos, still wonder why anyone thinks those look better than a good business suit.
Music was very unusual and quite beautiful. Brides brother plays classical mandolin, no, I had never heard of classical mandolin either but he and his girl friend who plays the piano played music like Jesu, joy of man's understanding anf a Bach number I'll have to look at the program to remember. Classical mandolin isn't strummed but each string is plucked and with the piano accompanyment it was beautiful.
Now we have run out of single grandkids and the oldest great is only 15 so would have to wonder if I'll even be around for the next batch of weddings, don't suppose so and in the long run it doesn't matter anyway. Time goes on or is it "time stays but alas we go on".
