Whirl Weekend

What a whirlwind weekend.

A concert in Ann Arbor on Friday. A folk singer that my cousin Shannon introduced me to, named Melissa Ferrick. Good show. Some funny banter. I really enjoy when musicans seem to appreciate the crowd they are playing for. It makes it so much warmer to watch.

Then a family wedding on Saturday, for my cousin John. Such a great guy. I'm so happy for him. His new wife, Amanda has a son, Dakota and John is now a dad.

Couldn't ask for a better one. John lost his dad when he was just a baby, but I'm sure his dad would be so proud of the man, his son has become.

The wedding was quite a party, but when there's a shuttle bus and no worries about drinking, all you have to worry about is your liver.

I'm always humbled and honored to be part of such a large, loving family so full of Irish pride that it's truly amazing.

We are blessed, despite recent sad events. We shall heal and grow stronger still.
We are family.

YAY, Melissa Ferrick!

I'm glad the wedding was a success...I'd have enjoyed a drink with you, I'm sure, though I'm such a jaded little cynic, it's probably best if I stick to funerals. ;)

Funny you should mention the Klan...I just gave Gloria the boot. Not that I'm proud to be the bouncer, but someone had to do it! Hopefully my super clever family will come back...

You rawk, sexy!
