Nelson and Tammy tied the knot back in Milwaukee. They had a pretty cool celebration close to Lake Michigan. Despite the horrible flight I had courtesy of the now defunct TWA, I was thrilled to make it. I know I had become acclimated to Austin weather too quickly because I didn’t pack any warm clothes for the cool, rainy weekend Milwaukee had.
According to the databases on the Internet, the gift for 15 years can be crystal (traditional) or watches (modern). The former seems rather dumb. I’m sure they have all the dining ware they could possibly want after this many years. The latter is equally silly. Our hectic civilization has displays of the time everywhere. I remember a co-worker stating that watches were obsolete thanks to cell phones having clocks built in. He overlooked the accessory element.
Nelson will probably play it smart. If it were me, I’d try to score something like an Ice Age 3 watch from Burger King to meet the requirement. A new iPhone 3G S is too rich for my blood to pull it off.
Drop Nelson a line to congratulate him if you know him!
