It took us less than half an hour - with the proper tools - to put Son Sean's new TV together this morning. We went ahead and took it into Spokane to his apartment. Forry hooked up all the connections and Sean and I went to get it set up. But Samsung has an auto start setup program that set itself up quickly and flawlessly. It only needed to ask us what time zone we were in and it went from there. So it ended up being a very quick visit and we were back home by noon.
I hemmed Forry's pants and we started getting ready to head for the Harrington area and Colby and Maria's wedding. Colby is the son of the man who leases and farms our ranch. We have watched him and his brother Tyler since they were just little guys. Colby and his Dad Jeff engineered Colby's proposal to Maria last summer by cutting it into the wheat at harvest time.
The wedding was held in a barn out between Ritzville and Harrington. The barn has cement floors and was divided into three sections by the former feed troughs. The left two sections were set up with folding chairs for the guests while the right side was set up for the caterers. There were small white lights wound around all of the beams and pillars. There were vases with wheat bouquets set all around the barn in jars that were painted the tangerine of the bridesmaid dresses. The entire wedding party wore cowboy boots - including the mothers of the bride and groom! Maria had said she wanted a wedding dress that she could wear with her boots and that's what she did!
After the ceremony, tables were quickly set up for the catered buffet supper. My Nephew Nick, college classmate of Colby, was in the wedding party (the handsomest one!). We ended up sitting with my Brother Pat and Sister-in-law Cindy and enjoyed a chance to visit with them. And to visit with so many of our old neighbors and friends from when we lived on the ranch almost thirty years ago.
It was a lovely day!
