Happy Anniversary to you and your darling Ogre, PF.
And your lovely parents, too. ~ Don't worry about the derailing, the OP doesn't mind.
Actually, I figure if people also want to chime in on poorly planned wedding/anniversary dates and events like that, it's in keeping with the spirit of the thread. Now if we go off on why coconut oil is bad or good, then we'll have a problem.

You are an evil, evil man, Andy
. I love
Good stories, everyone. I do have one about our wedding date. Seems we oops'd and picked a date when Ohio State was playing Michigan in the final game of the season. We kiddingly told our priest that we would have to change the date. He was worried I was pregnant...
When we told him the real reason, he offered to hide a little TV under the altar cloth of the side altar. We told him "that's OK". Later, at the reception, my Mom said to me that she felt so bad about one of Himself's friends. "So young to be wearing a hearing aid and all." (This was in 1974 when transistor radios were common.) I asked her if it was Mike with the sandy brown hair and glasses. When she said it was, I told her that it wasn't a hearing aid. *gasp* "You mean he was listening to the radio in CHURCH?!?" Yeah, Mom, and his were the best words in the receiving line at the back of the church: "state's up by 3".
Our best man was driving the car and wouldn't unlock the doors for the photographer until the game was over, either. Didn't matter; with the receiving line in church all of our family and friends were already cozy at the bar when we got there. We knew how to plan these things.
