Joe Gets Married

My friend Col. Joe is getting married.  Whether that is a good idea will play out later.  Joe is something of a stickler for details having retired after a 30 year Air Force career, during which he worked with Colin Powell on the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  As you might imagine, The Colonel's wedding has been planned with military precision.  My favorite parts are in red, with my comments in blue.

Darn. I would have liked to have been there for Joe. We could have been home at 1700 and call it a day.

Cute! Hope we see pix.

I love this schedule! The happy bride definitely doesn't have time for being fashionably late for the ceremony.
Keep us posted about any delays and disturbances during the day. Maybe a video documentary for the bridezilla-show?
