So Good!

The upcoming nuptials between my niece Carrie and her fiance Al are now just weeks, not months away. We love Carrie like a daughter and we are very happy that she found such a great guy. There’s just one very, very serious problem. Al is a die hard New York Yankees fan. Egad! So, here in Boston Red Sox Nation, it’s a mixed marriage. That fact, however, was difficult to discern today at Carrie’s Boston Red Sox themed bridal shower!

Lots of behind the scenes planning and plotting by Carrie’s sister Kate, their Mom (my sister) Gail and Carrie and Kate’s Auntie Linda made for a great afternoon hosted at Auntie Linda’s home in Rhode Island. Gail flew up from Georgia to surprise the bride-to-be, laying low at our Mom’s home until the shower. It was a fun wing ding and a good time was had by all!

Hi DMM -
What's a family to do?
You raise them up with allegiance to The Boston Red Sox and they go and fall in love with a fan of The Evil Empire!

Hey Roo -
Cricket would have been a blessing!!!
Heck, he could have been a Chicago Cubs fan or even a New York Mets fan --- but the Yankees???

Hey B2B -
Hopefully Carrie and Al can overcome even this great a gulf!
