Hap-hap=happy Holidaze

Is it me, or are the years actually getting shorter?

It's certainly been a busy year, with a new job,and lots of other stuff to be done.

But the most important thing is that each of you stay well, healthy and safe through this holiday season.

And enjoy the upcoming year. 2014 promises to be a big one, what with weddings and the like. Help!

Me either. But I have two. A colleague from the radio station gets married in Malaysia in three weeks, and silly ole me has agreed to be the MC there. Just put a bucket underneath me and I'll be fine.

And then Leigh gets married in November. Father of the groom. Proud father of the groom. That'll be me.

Our youngest daughter is to be wed in the middle of March 2014. I have to finely sandwich the event between two overseas trips. Or should I say, I have to fit the two trips around the wedding. Now, as father of the bride, this are my big questions for the day:

1. Do I leave my camera at home?
2. Do I wear a tie?

Ozi.

I shoot in colour, but the question revolves around keeping the missus happy during proceedings. :lol: I think I may have to hide a camera somewhere and sneak it in. BTW, we do have a pro wedding photog lined up for the day.

No. The question was "Do you shoot (at the wedding) in B&W or colour?" :) :)

Actually, the more serious question is, WHEN do I shoot (or threaten to shoot) my son-in-law? :lol:
