Finally found my "Flower Child" wedding photo

I finally found one of my wedding pictures and as you can see, I had a "flower child" wedding, even though I was 23 years old. Those were the days of bell bottom pants and mini skirts, but my dress was knee length. This was taken in our trailer after we went to the Justice of the Peace. When we had our marriage blessed in the Catholic Church, I have no idea what happened to those pictures, but I wore a simple dress, then we went home for a little family get together. Al look like a gangster is this suit and I always laugh when I see it, but having a simple wedding lasted longer than any of our friends. All 7 of our best friends had big weddings and have all divorced since then.

I had my epidural yesterday, and I am feeling a little drunk today and want to eat everything in sight because of the steroids. I have to watch my sugar intake because of the diabetes---steroids make your sugar level rise.

We have been having rain every day since Alex started in the Gulf. Oil is worse than ever and you could see it in the waves as they broke on shore. It will be decades before the beaches are safe to go into the water and I for one, am not going into it until I know it is safe to go in the water.

Not much else going on. Just waiting to find out when my surgery will take place. I never knew neurosurgeons were so booked that you had to wait forever, but that is how things stand for now. I hope you all have a great day. It is dark and gloomy here today and I am supposed to rest for a couple of days, but I can drive starting tonight and that is a good thing as Al will be coming this afternoon, so I can go and pick up a few things I need. Love and Hugs, Pat

Hah, we ALL look young in those pictures, sugar! Mine are terribly frightful to think I was that....well, you know what I mean. We certainly "BLOSSOM" as we age. I mean get better looking. I was so homely it was pathetic...

Ohhh, Pat, you were just too adorable for words! Love this pic of all of you! Who are the other couple? Love your cake and topper, too!

I'll be so glad when you get your surgery out of the way and can start feeling better. Enjoy your time with Al~

BTW, did you ever get my email with my address?

I forgot to mention the other 2 people in the photo. The man is Al's brother who is deceased-he was murdered and the other girl is my youngest sister and the only reason she is in the photo is because my other sister went into labor the day before and had her baby, so my other sister stood in. I wanted one of my friends instead, but my mom was upset about that, so I just didn't care as long as the little wedding went okay. Thank you all for the sweet compliments. I have aged too fast from all the surgeries and the stress it caused.

I think that is one of the best wedding photos I have seen. So simple and honest and beautiful. I also love the curtains in the background.:)
Thanks for stopping by my blog and telling me about the Coke with salted peanuts in it. I have never tried that but want to sometime. It must be a southern thing as I know no one here in Ohio who does that.
