AJ & RAY FIRST SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN RHODE ISLAND
Thursday, August 01, 2013
AJ AKA AS LUNARHUNK AKA AARON AND HIS PARTNER OF 10+ YEARS WERE THE FIRST SAME SEX TO BE CIVIL UNION PARTNERS IN RHODE ISLAND AND TODAY THEY BECAME THE FIRST SAME SEX COUPLE TO MARRY IN RHODE ISLAND,
I believe Aaron was the first blogger I met and exchanged comments with and we have been talking ever since. Though I have never met or talked to Ray I know he and Aaron are a good match. I promised them I would be at their 50th anniversary!
The other good news I got was that my oldest friend---not in age but in time we have known each other--Chuck and his partner Terry, both living in Memphis, will be going up to Washington D.C. at the end of the month, for the softball games, and, marriage being legal in D.C., will be getting married there. I am so glad they decided not to live in sin!!!
It being Thursday Allen and I went to the Cafe Vico--he had garlic shrimp with angel hair and I had eggplant parmigiana. The chef seems to outdo himself every week. There hasn't been a dish less than excellent at this place.
As always there is something to rock the boat and though nothing major it annoys me. I went to the dentist for my new 'flip' but it seems it was just a fitting and I have to go back in two weeks. I am use to my old dentist doing the work in his office but this one has to send it out. Oh well I AM managing to eat! LOL
I, also, was approved, for the MRI and MRA to be done in the hospital and I have to be there at 8 AM--OMG! 8 AM--on Tuesday August 20th which means I have to get up at 6 AM to go to the hospital only to go to sleep! LOL
Last, but not least, it being summertime I am taking a little vacation. I will still do blogs on new restaurants and new movies and once in awhile other topics but in most cases I am going to repost some old blogs. I came across a series I did a couple of years ago called "Summer in Fort Lauderdale" plus a few from 6-7 years ago that I hope all the people that haven't read them will enjoy them and others rereading them will remember them fondly though looking at the names most have left blogging!!
