Rain, rain, go away…

come again some other day.
Today’s my anniversary day,
so, just for now, please go away!

Back when we were planning the wedding, I carefully researched the weather almanac to discover which days had the lowest incidence of rain in recorded history for Seattle. July 29th was #3–it had only rained twice on July 29th since people started keeping track of that stuff. Make that three times, now. Because today, it’s been raining off and on all day. It was quite nice on our wedding–which was good since it occurred outside. Even though it had rained like the Dickens for two days before and we worried the ground would be too muddy, in the end it was OK and I didn’t get mud on my white shoes. I’d post a photo of me in my thin glory with long blonde hair and short white dress, but… while I still have the dress in storage, I have misplaced the photos. At least I haven’t misplaced the groom, and in spite of foolishly leaving my wedding ring in washrooms many times, I still have that, too.

But, no, we won’t be celebrating #14 in the great out of doors, so I don’t suppose it matters that it’s a bit moist today. No, we’ll be dining and then hopping off to see The Dark Knight–which is appropriate since our first official date was to the movies. Jim won’t tell me where we’re having dinner though… hmmm….

    well, golly gosh, I forgot the date! Happy Anniversary to you both. It was a beautiful wedding and you looked smashing!!! One of my most dear memories. Many more wonderful years to come for both of you. Thinking of you both…. ah… now I’m off to travel down that memory lane you just opened.

    lol, happy anniversary, i’m getting married in november so rain is practically a cert.

  3. Dave B. says:

    Aww, that’s sweet! Happy Anniversary!


  4. Sandy: I suspect the idiot DJ still doesn’t know how much he owes his life to you. hehe 😉

    Aw thanks y’all. It was an awfully good date. We ended up seeing Hellboy 2 since neither of us was in the mood for quite so much intensity at the time. So we still have a great movie to look forward to.

    Adele: Best of luck, my dear and Congratulations! Fall may be wet, but it’s often so very pretty.

    Too true about the DJ. That was memorable wasn’t it?? What a time we all had, doesn’t really seem that long ago and then again, it does….

  6. It was long enough ago that I think I need another excuse for a major party sometime in the next few years…. 😉

    This time we shall not allow DJs in sharkskin suits.
