When we went on the European tour in August, 2005, we were Accompanied by our good friend, Bucky Barrett, and his fiancée, Gigi. Miro Simic, who has been a friend of Scotty's for many years (see his visit to my house in May), arranged for them to be married by his friend Jean Luc Martin in Stockholm who is a minister at Englise Reformee Franaise, a beautiful French Reformed Church in the heart of Stockholm. Gigi and Bucky both looked beautiful for the ceremony.

Our good friend Vidar Thomt was with us.  He drove us down from Norway in his great big Ford Expedition and stayed with us the whole time we were in Stockholm. He could not get that big car on a plane, so he had to leave us at the airport when we left Stockholm to go to London.

After we went back to the hotel and changed clothes, we all went to the bridal supper at an ancient restaurant in Stockholm.  I don't know how to spell it in Swedish, but the translation of the name was Five Small Houses, and it had been built in just that many, many years ago.  I don't remember how many centuries back the buildings were built, but American memories don't go back that far....it was before Columbus discovered us!  We got to sign the guest book there, and I guess our signatures will be there many years after we all are gone.  And the food was great, too!

This was the beautiful wedding dessert made for the couple by the restaurant.  It was a special day for all of us, and especially Gigi and Bucky.

--Happy Wedding and many good years together, guys!
