Destination: Iowa

After getting back from Boston, we’re out the door again heading to Iowa for a family wedding. As always, we have a house sitter when we’re out, so stalkers and burglars beware. It will be nice to visit Iowa in spring weather; nice lighting for photos.

Back home again in Indiana

We spent the last couple of days in Toronto doing some low-key stuff. I was pretty tired after doing so much walking around every day all day. We did do some shopping in the Church-Wellsley area (the gayborhood) and we took the subway to Canadian Tire and such. Stephanie loves the subway, but I really

Shoe Museum and Honest Eds

Saturday, Stephanie and I hopped on the Subway and went West on Bloor to see the Shoe Museum. Yes, a whole museum just dedicated to the history of footwear. It was fun, but I wish there were some exhibits on modern styles of shoes, instead of how each culture’s footwear evolved. There were totally no

Niagara Falls, China Town & Kensington Market

Thursday we drove to Niagara Falls to site-see, which was fun. I really had a much different picture in my head of what the falls were like, most from the show “Wonderfalls” which I want to see again now that I’ve been there. It was overcast on the drive there, but cleared up when we

Our Toronto Honeymoon – Day 3

Today, we got married in City Hall, Toronto. Judy in the ceremonial chambers found witnesses for us – Harold and Steve from Houston were scheduled to get married just after us, so they were our witnesses, and we were theirs. They were an adorable gay couple from Houston, Texas — together 15 years, married for

Our Toronto Honeymoon – Day 2

Today we took the subway to Union Station and took photos of the station, then visited the CN tower, where we hung out for half the day and had a leisurely lunch and shopped in the gift shop. The tower is worth a trip: tallest man-made structure in the world, with awesome views. There are

Our Toronto Honeymoon – Day 1

We’re staying on Carleton Street near Yonge Street, which is in downtown Toronto. We got out today and did some walking on Yonge Street south of our hotel. People seem much thinner here in Toronto than Indianapolis. In fact, I think I was the largest person I saw all day, which is not the case

Reading: Ruth 1:16-17

Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to

1st Corinthians 13:4-13

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant. Love does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes

Selections from Leaves of Grass, Song of the Open Road

by Walt Whitman from verse 9 However sweet these laid-up stores–however convenient this dwelling, we cannot remain here; However shelter’d this port, and however calm these waters, we must not anchor here; However welcome the hospitality that surrounds us, we are permitted to receive it but a little while. … from verse 11 Listen! I

Ego dilecto meo et dilectus meus

We bought our wedding rings this evening – they are Latin Poesy Rings that are engraved with the phrase Ego dilecto meo et dilectus meus – “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine” — (Song of Solomon 6:3) And because I failed to show a picture of it before, some images of my

I wanna commitment ceremony you

Stephanie and I were having talk the other day with one of our friends over terminology and what we called our selves, our wedding, and what we’ll call ourselves once we’re married. That’s not an unusual discussion, and gay people have different opinions about it. There are some who don’t embrace the words “marriage” “fiancĂ©e”

I has a package

The post office gave me a notice to come pick something up from them. I believe it would be my wedding dress. Yay! Wow, I’ve had a distinct lack of blogging here. That’s not for want of things to write, just time. I think I have three books I need to note on my “have

Our Wedding Locations

You may or may not know this already, but Stephanie and I are getting married on May 31, 2008. Last week we visited our planned locations to take photos and reserve them. We’re getting married in Great Oak Commons Park in our neighborhood, Old Northside, about a block away from our house. It’s a pretty
