Wedding Belles

I’m sure you all remember my little niece, Celia? From last year’s Star Gazing Astronomy Night at the Big White?

Well, now days little lenses grow up really fast it seems. Not only is Celia all grown up already, but she’s getting married this weekend!

I’m not exactly clear on all the details, all I know for sure is it’s somewhere in Michigan – you know, fly-over. I think she is marrying into one of the old-line mirror families out there. There used to be dozens of them, providing rearview mirrors to the auto companies, but apparently with the downturn in the auto industry there is only one left, and that’s not the one she’s marrying into. So she’s hoping to get a job at the University of Michigan’s planetarium.

But anyway, because of all the weekend-long activities, I won’t be able to spend as much time as I would like on my blog. I’ll try to keep you posted on any key activities taking place with the O’s on their Fantasy Dessert Desert Island vacation, relying on remote transmissions arranged by Raj. Don’t expect much activity though, the O’s have no public appearances scheduled.  But I most likely will not be able to keep up with all of your wonderful comments, so please, “talk amongst yourselves” as they say on real blogs.


And it really was just a coincidence that Big Guy was in Michigan yesterday. No truth to the rumor that Big Guy is a robot in need of longer lasting batteries. Well, he doesn’t need longer lasting batteries anyway. You’d know that if you’ve ever heard him read a speech.
