Just another day in the South



I just wanted to pop in for a moment. Nick and I are better, we’ve talked and we will be talking some more. But that’s not want I’m posting about today. I want to tell you about Mollie’s weekend because it was interesting to say the least.

Mollie has to do a senior project. She chose photography as her subject. In addition to an 8 to 10 page paper she must have a ‘product’ to present. One of her teachers had an acquaintance whose son was getting married but they had no money for a photographer. The teacher asked if Laura would be willing to shoot the wedding, touch up the pictures on her computer and with the bride and groom’s permission, make a second album to use as her ‘product’.


Everyone seemed happy with the suggestion. Nick went along to help – he took wedding pictures years ago. They went to the rehearsal Friday night to meet everyone and see the best placed to set up some shots. When they arrived Mollie said she was a bit uncomfortable to realize everyone else was wearing jeans while she had put on a dress. You know how teens are; they hate to be different in a crowd. But then finally someone else showed up in a dress – only thing was, the other person in a dress was the father of the bride. Yep, nice black dress, green platform shoes and a long auburn wig. Hmmmm…

It makes me of Julia Sugarbaker’s quote from Designing Women –

“I'm saying this is the South. And we're proud of our crazy people. We don't hide them up in the attic. We bring 'em right down to the living room and show 'em off. See, Phyllis, no one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family. They just ask what side they're on.”

What side they're on...How about sides in my case! I love the South even though that sounds like a Vegas or L.A. thing!! Happy you and Nick are better!

ROFLMAO. I don't know how Mollie
will be able to keep a straight face when she takes the family photos for the wedding. I only hope the father doesn't upstage the daughter at the weddding by having a nicer dress... hahah

Paul,
Talking, thinking, wondering but always love hearing from you.

Mthc,
Yeah we have a few on each side too.

Ronnie,
Yeah and I'd like to have seen Nick's face too. I think the project should be interesting.

C,
No fear, the daughter ask her dad to dress as a man for the wedding and he did. But he looked stranger as a man than dressed as a woman

As long as he wears a nice dress that is appropriate for a wedding, what is the problem?

And nice that your daughter is helping out the bride and groom and also helping her project.

Also good to see that uou're talking. A good step in the right direction.
