    And happy life.

    When Wife said my uke playing is too loud while she is watching her drama, I lightly brush the strings.

    I did ask what they would like but they want it to be a surprise and we mothers are just doing a 10-12 minute set. I am actually thinking of doing “You and I” as one song because there is good advice in there for buying us parents a home in the south of France. So maybe one light song, one sweet song and then I have no idea about the original, which we’ll try to co-write.

    Funny. I didn't realize it was you asking.

    I also like the line about, "Love will pay the bills." Yeah, that really works.

    I'm going to the Gardiner Library Wednesday night, 7:00 - 9:00. Last night in Red Hook, Shelly recommended it

    Thanks for sharing those sites Jerry. I've passed them on to some people who have wedding gigs coming up. Sort of a "do not use" list.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.

    Also thinking of singing ‘Deed I Do. And/or maybe something by Cake.
    Also possibly, All of Me, When Somebody Loves You.

    This is a nice suggestion.

    Nice ideas, thanks

    But for shear sentimentality you can't go much deeper than:

    "Wedding Song" by Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary, or
    "Turn Around", I don't know who wrote it but it was performed by the Brothers Four, Harry Belafonte and many others.
    I’ll have to check these out because I don’t know these songs. Thanks.
