    what a great concept. no sides, just one family joined by love.

    Still dislike that Arlo dressed way too casually. He looks like he’s dressed for a picnic. He could’ve looked good in tan slacks and white dress shirt, sans tie. Sigh!

    No rehearsal; no rehearsal dinner.

    Arlo didn’t pack for a wedding. I’m sure the kids couldn’t care less.

    that’s the way it is today. honest to blog! a couple of summers ago at the viewing for a family friend who passed away more than a few folks showed up dressed as if they were going to or coming from the beach. God forbid they have to go to all the trouble of going home and changing into a dress or pants and a shirt and tie much less a suit.. manners and decorum are going the way of cd’s and paper newspapers and books. makes you wonder why Mary Loo even wanted a wedding. Gene just wanted to elope a couple of years back and skip it all.

    What happened to the “dressy casual” dress Janis bought for the wedding in the sportswear dept. on 9/14? This jacketed dress isn’t near as nice.

    Reaffirmation for why I stay away from funerals and weddings. If people can find fault with the way comic strip characters are dressed, imagine what they do in real life. :)

    I think I’ll elope, not that anyone cares.

    About twenty years ago, I was at a house-warming party. About two hours in, the host and hostess got people lined up and another attendee performed the ceremony for them! Then we got on with the party.

    You are absolutely correct! I don’t avoid funerals & weddings, but you are right.

    Well, his son did say dress casual. I’m assuming to buy a suit would be expensive; thus Janis okay’ed the casual wear.

    “Reaffirmation for why I stay away from funerals and weddings.
