I'll have more pictures of the wedding later, but I need to talk about food today.
After the ceremony and the 40-minute cocktail hour where we just kind of milled around and hugged lots of people, we finally found table 3. We shared it with 7 other nice and funny people, none of whom I ever found out the names of, except maybe Chris who did the service and his girlfriend Amanda. We all got familiar enough to takes each others' pictures bunches of times with those disposable cameras and find out all about each other - just no names.
These are some of the decorations on the tables.
Mama, me, Debby, and my brother Mike, the bride's father. All us looking fairly presentable, I think. I even managed to keep my shoes on the whole time until we were walking back to the hotel. I think Debby and I behaved very nicely - except for just a tiny bit of texting to Mike and Emily that went on.
Mama not only rode in her first limo Saturday but ate her first lobster. She managed to stay grounded though and still wanted a McDonald's sausage and biscuit for breakfast the next morning.
I mentioned 2 feasts so here is the second one, totally opposite from the first one, but just perfect for me on this rainy day.
On the way home from Tuscaloosa Sunday morning, Debby, Mama, and I stopped at Durkins Market fruit and vegetable and everything else you might want store in Clanton, AL.
It's too early for good peaches, but we still got some. And squash. And Watermelon. And tomatoes. And boiled peanuts. And maybe some peach ice cream for the trip home.
Mama cooked squash and onion yesterday, and it was delicious.
This is my own personal watermelon. Beautiful!
With cucumbers and watermelon, it was delicious.
