I love weddings. They are one of the happiest occasions we as humans celebrate. My niece was married in Georgetown, TX this past weekend. During the photo session after the ceremony, I handed my iPhone to one of the groomsmen and asked him to take a photo of our family with the bride & groom. As we were being positioned by the photographer, he snapped this candid with a very nice “Hook ’em Horns” in the foreground. I really like this shot, as it takes me back 20 or so years to the time in my life when I served as a groomsmen in several weddings. This is something I would have done had the uncle of the bride asked me to snap a pic on his cell phone. It brought a smile to my face when I first discovered it in my camera roll late last night. To the anonymous groomsman I say, “well played, sir!”
Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. ~ Genesis 2:22-24

My daughter took this pic of our Golden Retriever, Lucy, and called it “Business Dog”. Whether working or just having fun, Lucy craves human contact and she loves being around us. And she always has this happy look on her face. This is our first Golden, and I’m a fan of this breed. Maybe I should bring her to work and let her charm my prospects!

“Leave it to the pros.” It wasn’t too long ago that I scoffed at that notion. Why call a pro when I can save a few bucks and repair or install it myself? Case in point: our kitchen faucet bit the dust last weekend. It had been showing the signs – hard to rotate, slow to shut off, and when I nearly pulled the handle off the other day I knew it was time for a replacement. My wife bought a lovely Delta faucet at Lowe’s Sunday afternoon. As I perused the directions and prepared to undertake my project, that voice inside me said, “call a plumber.” I tried to ignore it, but it was quite persistent and even resorted to calling me names. “Dummy, call a plumber.” I finally gave in, and am I glad I did! After just over two hours’ work, including having to grind away a lip of our sink that was partially blocking the hole in the granite countertop, I happily wrote the $247 check to the man that did such a good job. “Leave it to the pros,” indeed!
