The Race Is On

The race is on to get everything ready for the big day on Saturday. Last night we went to a rehearsal at the Church and after the exhaustion of my birthday celebrations at the Dog Races from the previous day I was still feeling a little worse for wear. At one stage I found myself proclaiming "we do". Just who I have married, I am not entirely sure about, but at this stage, who cares?


  1. Happy Birthday belatedly and all the best for the weekend :)
    Have a splendid day!

  2. May your son and wife have a great life together...and may your event provide joyful memories for all. And then you can come home and get back to your life. I was really surprised to see a blog from you today! Yay, Alan.

  3. Have a wonderful weekend...relax and enjoy! :)

  4. Happy Belated and do enjoy the wedding!

  5. Everything in moderation, Alan. Too much happiness and joy can be pretty exhausting. Cheers!

    Sri Gita Govinda

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
