I was racing through stores on main street in Virginia, Minnesota looking for ballet slippers. We were getting married in a few hours and I still had nothing to put on my feet. They were found ... along with some surprise friends who had come for the wedding.
We were married in the Faith United Lutheran Church in Iron. The weather was a wee bit chilly for my southwestern groom. He donned long handles under the tuxedo he wore. Who would have thought that 25 years down the road, long handles would be his regular winter attire.
