No Gifts Please


Jeff—Saturday

Today’s the day folks. As the legendary Stanley Holloway once sang, “I’m getting married in the morning…” 


Actually the wedding is this afternoon, but in keeping with the premise of his tune, I’m surely marrying my fair lady.

Yes, Barbara is making an honest man of me.  It’s only taken her a decade, but while waiting for her to come around, I’ve come to be known as “that lucky guy with the wonderful Barbara (aka Photobomer).”

So true.

It will be a tiny, immediate family affair in Scottsdale, Arizona with proper homage paid to Greece, the land where we met and for which we share a deep love.  But there is another great love we share, one for all the many friends our being together has introduced into our lives. You’ve helped us do more than launch a new chapter in our lives; you’ve blessed us with an entire library filled with wonderful friends, glorious adventures, and joy.


Our love, good wishes, and thanks to each of you on this glorious day.

Plus, a very happy and healthy 2020.

—Jeff and Barbara

  6. Barbara making you an honest man? That may be a stretch, but the fact she's taking you on anyway is prima facie evidence of true love. I wish both of you lives of happiness, peace, meaning, and fulfillment. Mazel Tov!

    1. That she's always one up for a challenge is the only explanation I can come up with for her change of heart. :) Big thanks, Keith!
