Back in Kingston Thursday, July 10, 2008

Kingston City Hall was built in 1844 at a cost of 25,000 pounds, when the city was the capital of Canada.

I'm trying to get caught up on some of the photos I have taken but not posted this week. I'm back in Kingston now, where my parents live. As my brother's wedding approaches, things are starting to get pretty crazy around here.

The wedding itself will take place on the campus of Queen's University where he, I, and about three-quarters of the rest of my family went to school between five and 70 years ago. At least one of my other relatives worked there.

Almost every one of my living relatives will be here this weekend for the celebration, and my parents' house will be the center for most of the pre-wedding action. Tonight, my mother's family will be here for dinner with us and Sue (the bride) and her parents—18 in all. They aren't having a rehearsal, but Friday night we are having a rehearsal dinner—22 plus the photographer. Many more, of course, on Saturday night.

Stuart and Sue are both engineers, so of course the whole thing is well organized. The Four-Day Master Plan kicked into action today, and as the Best Man, I have a bunch of things to do, so this will probably be the last post for a while.

Oh, my grandparents just arrived ... gotta go.
