Both Natascha and I would like to thank everyone who Liked and made such wonderful Comments (200 approx. Whew !) in my wedding post, plus, thank you to >>>
Your emails were lovely. Thank you !
Talking of emails, Al sent us this lovely poem >>>
“Hi Ralph and Natascha! I just wanted to say again how happy I am that all turned out well for you, in spite of all the roadblocks you encountered. You look like a very happy couple and I wish you much love and happiness in the coming years. I didn’t get a chance to send you anything, but I thought maybe a little poem would help convey my sincere best wishes to you both. It has been a pleasure blogging with both of you. Here it is:
Natascha and Ralph were in love, and fit like a hand in a glove
The quest was then started, to be married, not parted
In the ceremony required thereof.
With so much at stake, they were required to partake
Filling out so many forms, which came at them in swarms
That they hardly had time for a break.
With red tape galore, much angst was in store
For quite soon they found, that mistakes would abound
But they always kept up “esprit de corps.”
After much tribulation, there was cause for elation
For approval arrived, and their spirits revived
Henceforth, it would be all celebration.
City Hall now awaited, as their marriage was slated
And it happened were glad, to this sweet lass and lad
And thus, here’s this rhyme, though belated!
Awesome ! Thanks Al !
