Hey Scott (it is Scott, right?) great to hear from you. Thanks for being in touch. It was great to see your name on the screen when I logged in just now.
So, how cold is cold? I thought your beautiful country had a fairly temperate climate.
When's the big day? I'd like to toast it with a rum and coke. I'm still toasting David's birthday with regular rum and cokes (that, plus steak and ice cream is my anti-cancer diet) (if it's going to get me, I figure it can have me a few months early ---- but, I'm going with a burp) but I'd love to go get a new bottle to celebrate your wedding.
I think it a real advantage, by the way, getting rid of those testicles pre-nuptual. For most of us it's the painful process of the wife stomping on them afterwards. (Lord, don't tell my wife I said that or she'll get the jack boots back out for the next stomp.)
Please, keep in touch and keep us posted on the weather, the wedding and the PCa
