I got married last Monday to my best friend and de facto partner, Adrian Kosky.
We made the mutual decision to get married on Monday afternoon. By Monday evening around 7:00, we were a married couple finishing our meal at the Atzimba Mexican Restaurant in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

|Randall Andrews performed the marriage ceremony.|
|We admired the fancy Mississippi Marriage License.|
|I have a cute little Wal-Mart wedding ring, |
because the local jewellery store was closed Monday.
|Our friend, Robin Colonas, happened to be at Atzimba's |
and snapped this wedding pic with her iPhone.
|The wedding feast was our favourite mexican meal: chicken chimichanga.|
|We went to the Shack Up Inn on our wedding night|
to hear an Australian band, Money for Rope.
|Our first breakfast as a married couple: donuts from Delta Donut|
|Part two of our first breakfast as a married couple: egg & cheese biscuits |
at the famous cross roads of highways 49 & 61 in Clarksdale, Mississippi
We have been a de facto couple in Australia for five years, although in the U.S.A. we were not considered a married (or legal) couple. So, the new bit that we are really enjoying is the decision to use the words "husband" and "wife."
Other "new" things that I have experienced within the past six months are related to my health. I have had a tumour removed and am, thankfully, recovered from the surgery. Also, I have been learning to live with diabetes.
Now that these things have been blogged out.....I feel a bit better, and I'm grateful that my unusual life can continue, as usual.
