You Get What You Pay For

You Get What You Pay For

What are You Wearing on Your Wedding Day?

I had met my daughter’s husband only once before he asked, “I would like permission to date–no court–your daughter.” Court? I had never heard a person his age ask such a thing. I was waiting for the following line; this had to be good with that type of lead in. He continued and stated that […]
