Today I got two great things in the mail ...
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 09:03 PM by ronnykmarshall
One was our official certified marriage licensee issued by the state of California.

The other was a card from my 92 year old Step-Grandmother who sent a wedding card to us and wrote: "I'm proud to be the step grandmother of two fine young men. May every cloud have silver linings." Love Marie

My step-grandmother is a wonderful lady. When Al Franken used to have his show on AAR she told me that she listened to his show every day. Her old AM radio was a bit scratchy to pick up the signal from San Luis Obispo. So I made sure that I worked that radio so she could hear him.

I'm writing this for a reason. I know that we all want Barack to win the election. And really think he's gonna. But on a personal note, I really have to fight to keep my marriage legal.

Please. If it's only $5, donate to fight to keep gay marriage legal in California. Polls are showing right now that 51% support gay marriage. But we all know what polls in July are like.

Here's a link .....

To me this along with the Presidency is the fight of my life.

I thank you guys from the bottom of my hear.

4. She is an amazing woman.
I don't get to see her very much. But every time I do she just knocks me out. She grew up in Canada and came to California in the 70's. She is a wonderful lady and I am so glad that she came into my life.

3. I am really happy for you.
I hope the people of California keep your marriage legal. It just seems odd to me that it is even an issue, that there are people who see your lives differently than their own.
