Ah, an announcement has just arrived in my down under mail box alerting me to the 18 December marriage ceremony of two important friends from southern California.
Congratulations to you both. I know that it is not proper to congratulate the bride, but when have we ever been 'proper'.
the Aussie and I wish you the most delightful, fulfilling, thoroughly exciting 2012 and many years beyond. May bliss follow you both all the years of your relationship.
It is a joy to see the picture of the two of you legally entwined !
