These are a few of my favourite things

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

I had the pleasure of attending another wedding today, for longtime friend Chris, and Lindsay. They had it outside, at Baker Park, up near Bowness, which actually worked out much better than I thought it would. It’s a nice place, even if the skies were ominous, and the weather slightly nippy. Which was to be expected in September.

The reception was a good time as well, if a bit of a drive (down at Heritage Pointe golf course). The speeches were  basically one long continuous burn on Chris (and mostly nice things about Lindsay, though they had their share of stories as well), which was to be expected. Dude can dish, so he’d better be able to take it.

The father of the bride- who absolutely killed in his speech- even had someone dressed as a pirate come in during his bit, on account of it being “International Talk Like a Pirate Day”. Outstanding. Even more than his opening with “Lindsay, good call on the creamed corn and potatoes.”

I guess you had to be there for that one.

That done, I’ll leave you with this:

And it’s a heave (hey!) hi (hey!), coming down the plains
Stealing wheat and barley, and all the other grains
And it’s a ho (hey!) hi (hey!), farmers bar your doors
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina’s mighty shores

    Hey dude,That video was filmed in Caronport. LOL!!!! The tree, the chapel, that elementary, Chandel’s old place, the lump of dirt at the elementary that one teacher built because it’s so flat all bring back memories of living on the strees of caronport for a month. The son of the dairy farmer (because you see dairy cows in the background) sang at our wedding. I’ll have to get Chandel to try and name the kids in the video. They have to be local. I’m giving you a few props. Papa-G

    Also of note were the throngs of men who expressed disappointment that Chris is off the market. Yes, I did say men. Another good time was Kurt’s speech (as best man) wherein he offered praise of Chris’ “flawless” driving record. Except for all of those Sasquatch sightings that resulted in a little ummmm turbulence. Good recounting of the events Dave. And mad props (well…2 props) for the song reference.Mike
