Reading

I’m looking at the photographs. They are hanging in the hall, I’m smiling at the memories, looking at the pictures on the wall. My son Robert’s married now. I’m living in LA. My daughter’s working in Detroit. I’m very far away.

Today is a very special day, it’s my wedding eday, and all my family and friends are here. Everybody is having a wonderful time. My wife Jane, is standing in front of the fireplace. She’s wearing a beautiful white wedding gown. Uncle Harry is taking her photograph and Aunt Emma is crying (she’s very sentimental). The band is playing my favourite popular music. My mother is dancing with Jane’s father, and Jane’s mother is dancing with Jane’s father, and Jane’s mother is dancing with my father.

My sister and Jane’s brother are standing in the yard and eating wedding cake. Our grandparents are sitting in the corner and talking about the “the good old days”. Everybody is having a good time. People are singing, dancing and laughing, and our families are getting to know each other. It’s a very special day.
