Wm. Tell Overture Performed by Your Mom

I am so totally yanking this video from my favorite Bean Counter.

My son weds a week from this Saturday and, although he's way too old to be fussed at by his mom, we both laughed at the video below. He's sitting here next to me while I play hooky from work this afternoon.

We're remembering, watching silly YouTube videos, talking about his career; I'm telling him he's marrying up, (he is!), and just having some slack time together; listening to Leon Redbone and laughing at this:




Fixed the title. Thanks, Jimbo.

Of all the ages and stages there are, my favorite is the 'adult' phase...hehehe!

Thanks for that video, JOA -- whew, it feels like it goes that fast and then they're getting married. I bet there will be some hilarious toasts at that wedding. Cheers!

Funny as hell.

P.S. That would be the William Tell Overture. The 1812 Overture has cannons and shit.

Thanks, all!

He fixed us shrimp and grits, true Charleston fare, for dinner tonight. OMG!!! I'm gonna miss him when he goes.

Christmas isn't too far away...

Wait a sec...where's he going? I mean, I know he's getting married and all, but will be be so far away?

I loved that video, btw. I've seen it a hundred [read: two] times, and never get sick of it. She's so cute, that silly mama singing that song.

My mother never said stuff like that to me growing up, although I did hear a lot of "because I said so."

I am so glad I don't live with those wacko parents of mine anymore. I love 'em, but...oy.

Son left home at 18 to go to college (Go Gators!) and has made his own way in the world for the last nine years.

See, that's the other thing, if you finesse the deal, the kids actually leave home when they're supposed to!
