Father of the Bride
I have already mentioned that my daughter is getting married. The first of the two ceremonies that I mentioned a few days ago takes place tomorrow. All I have to do is show up in a suit, pretend to be happy, and allow my photograph to be taking (remembering to smile).
This is the less-romantic portion, because it is conducted by a civil servant and there is no white dress. At least it takes place in a nice castle (one occupied for a short time by Napoleon on his way to Moscow to get a haircut), which is now owned by the government.
To mark the day, I'm including a cartoon that I sent to the groom to warn him about what was to come...
