Post-Wedding (post)

We’re back from my son’s wedding. The wedding was great – pulled off without any hitches, even when it was moved inside due to the iffy weather. It worked out great. Again, all thanks go to John and Lisa for putting everything together – they did all the prep and all I had to do was show up.

It was a great time to catch up with family and friends, and to watch two young people express their love for one another. They wrote their own vows, and it reminded me just how good they are at writing and speaking. Kate and I had worked with Nick on his vows, so we knew them very well by the wedding, but I had not seen Lindsay’s, and her words brought me to tears it was so lovely. After the wedding we went to the Jersey Shore for a couple of fantastic days while the kids went to Hawaii for two weeks. Yesterday they went to the beach with green sand and black sand and saw humongous sea turtles. It’s incredible. They’re having an incredible time, which is what a honeymoon should be all about (Kate and I did not have a honeymoon – I went to work after we got married, and I mean later that day).

I didn’t get a podcast up last week – forgot to upload it from my computer – so I have a spare that I’ll use if there’s a problem one week. You’ll wonder why I talk about the upcoming wedding, but whatever. This week’s podcast isn’t particularly wedding-themed, but there are a couple of songs that would easily fit into a wedding that are included, so let’s listen to Black Box Recorder, the Undertones, the Yearning, Simply Red, Father John Misty, Neko Case, Holly Golightly, Courtney Barnett, the Psychedelic Furs, Love & Rockets, Peter Murphy, Beck, Roxy Music, the Breeders, and the Soundtrack of Our Lives.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
