The Wedding Bells Are Ringing

My wife and I must attend a wedding of the son of one of my relatives.  We do not know the fellow well, but will attend anyway.  Two mildly enjoyable aspects about wedding dinners for me includes:

a) I typically will drink gin and tonics while at the reception.  With the people I associate with, gin is not particularly popular, so I do not buy it, nor do any of my drinking buddies ever have it.  But, I must say that gin (and gin and tonics) are my favorite flavor of a alcoholic libation.  So, to have them at the wedding will be quite enjoyable.

b)  I take one dressier, seldomly used, but in very good condition pipe with me.  The one I typically take is like the image above.  It is pristine in appearance of the bowl, looks brand new, and in one that nicely complements the sport jacket and tie I will be wearing. 

Usually, at weddings, the people who indulge in tobacco now congregate in an outside area by the hall, and you often find very interesting conversations.  While I am out there, I should look fairly dapper with my neatly trimmed beard and moustache, shinny, new pipe and sport jacket and tie. 

So, even though attending weddings of people you do not know particularly well is definetly not my favorite thing to do, I do have two enjoyable aspects that are helpful.

A man is not complete until he's married, and then he's finished. :-)

Wonder if you strive at looking dapper when camping.
