News from a far country

Got a card today from people I didn't know in northern Indiana. Turned out to be parents of a bride. I opened it up and there was a picture of a young couple with info on how to access their wedding website. *Sigh* People don't send invitations anymore, just "Save the Day!" cards.

I mentioned the couple's names to collinsmom. She said, "Who's that?" Showing her the picture, I said, "Well, you would remember him as an 11-year-old Boy Scout in Lynnville."

Yup. Charlie Irvin's gettin' hitched. Well, well. Time to shop for another cast iron skillet.
