A friend Andy from high school tied the knot this weekend, so a few of us traveled up north for the big hoopla. I was on a time crunch after my race, so as an old lady, I wore my hair in rollers as I drove up there then got ready at my parents house.
My mom has known the Offerle family for years so she attended the wedding with me. It was beautiful and quick. Just how a wedding should be! The reception was at Pine Valley Country Club where I use to work during my summers home from college. I was a “cart monkey” and got people’s clubs ready and loaded on the cart for their tee time. I ran into the pro-shop to see what was new… the employees were. They didn’t look a day over 17. Oh wait, I was only 18 when I started there. I felt old. Went over to the reception where the adults were and got a picture with the groom.
There were quite a few people there I hadn’t seen since they graduated so it was nice time to do a bit of catching up with some of them. A few of them were fellow runners too. One reminded me and his wife of the time I mooned him during a cross country race. Oops, forgot about that one. She seemed pretty cool and I reassured her that wouldn’t happen again. Here are some fellow Saints, Marcus and Chris.
Sunday was Father’s day, but my father wasn’t feeling the best. He’s had a cough all week, so he stayed home while Mom and I attended mass at St. Anne’s with my Grandma, Mimi. Talk about a sight to see. A retirement home catholic mass. There were more wheelchairs and walkers than prayer books. Just FYI – I did take communion and no, my tongue did not burn off. At the end of mass, my Mom looks at me and says “You can either take the prayer books or grab an old person.” WTF? I guess everyone that visits, helps out and wheels the fogies out so they can get back to their respective floors and rooms. I chose prayer books.
We got back to my parents to find my Dad already about done with 1 of the 2 books I bought him. Maybe the second will last until Thursday. We had a nice lunch and then I headed back to Indy. It was a long weekend, but great memories of it all!
