Congratulations! My  web to yours

Professional handshake. On the  firework night remember the squeeze?


Here is your wedding gift. I don’t like her by the way,

That woman by your side; you don’t match one bit.


Have a happy married life! Cliché saves the day,

If one of us is happy, surely the other will darken as night.


Say cheese for a photo! I see you for the first time,

Love the four lettered for what it is-

Donkey’s ears.

    ha this was a little playful…but perhaps the humor is the best way to deal with the angst…

    I love the voice in this one…a bit tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic even. Fun read and Brian is right. Humor is a good ointment for pain.

    I am laughing and applauding all at the same time! Thanks for your beady-eyed view of some of our favorite social exchanges! And the illustration reminding of the dark side of the moon was most appropriate!

    Perhaps my moon shot brought to mind ‘honeymoon’? (LOL!)

    It could Eric:)….I wanted your half moon to show what a jilted lover felt…the darkened side of the moon…….
