Happy Anniversary Maw & Paw

Today is our Maw & Paw's 9th wedding anniversary!!! We sent Maw these beeyoutimus flowers. The man in the jean shorts delivered them (FedEx).



















Maw & Paw were married on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, on a private estate on the autumnal equinox on a Wednesday. They had a "New Age" type ceremony and the witnesses were the photographer and the Hawaiian guitarist.

Maw bought her gown in Colchester, England; the city that Paw is from. She carried it on board back to DFW, (and had to pay a big duty). Then she had it altered, and then carried it on board to Hawaii from DFW. The flight attendents kept opening up the gown bag and looking at it. Maw was skeert Paw would see it when they were doing this. Maw says she would have never tried this after 9/11 because of the crazy flying restrictions in place now. Nope.

Maw arranged the entire ceremony over the internet. She never talked to anyone in person. The gown pressing, the flowers, the vows, the photographer, guitarist, and cake were all arranged via emails and internet.

Paw was measured for his morning suit here in DFW, then it was ordered to be delivered to a tux shop on Kauai. That was kinda nerve racking because the man in the brown shorts was late delivering it on the day he was to be fitted.

But efurrything worked out totally perfect and they had a wonderful, private ceremony in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.



In other noos, Reno has won the 200th post contest at Eric & Flynn's!!! He is so furry iscited because he nefer wins anyting. Even when he's rasslin' his brudders and sisfur, they beat the snot out of him because he is smaller. So he is so happy!!!

And in even more noos! Last nite, we saw Orinch leap up to the bird feeder and snatch a morning dove right off the feeder and then run up a tree with it! It's not as if Orinch wasn't full, because he had just eaten his food on the back patio. We were all furry shocked, and saddened for the poor dove.

Luf, Us

Happy Anniversary to your Maw and Paw! Those are some very, very beautiful roses. I'll bet they smell as pretty as they look.

My Mommie does almost everything on the internet too, but that is very adventurous to plan the whole wedding on-line. It sounds like it was a really special day, too.

Congratulations to Reno!

Oh what beautiful flowers and what a gorgeous picture. Maw's dress was awesome. I agree with her, after 9/11 I wouldn't try that with a dress either. Wow .... congrats Reno!
