Wedding was lovely. Nearly eaten alive by bugs, but otherwise spiffy. The bride showed up in a 90-year-old electric car, and the ceremony went smoothly. (I discovered about half an hour beforehand that I was best man, but since I didn't have to make a speech that wasn't a problem.)

We stopped by the Maffra Hospital beforehand and saw the photo & plaque of my grandfather Oscar on the wall. At the reception, some of my stepmother's family talked about their memories of him (this is the one who died before I was born). At the reception we had a local bush band... and it turned out Oscar had been the one who brought their lead singer into the world, many years ago. From all accounts, Oscar was a memorable fellow.

Speeches. An old friend of my father's mentioned that in his undergraduate days, he'd been known for his 'fiendish laugh'. The things you learn...

Probably more later when I remember it, but for now, happy and mellow. Family is what you make it...
