Favorite Photos from the Weekend

My youngest son, Cord, went to his first high school prom last night. Earlier in the week we'd dashed to the nearest tuxedo rental place at nearly the last minute, where a tailor asked him to fill in a form with his name and address. None of my sons have ever cared about their handwriting, and Cord's C's look like L's. So when the young girl at the computer later entered the order for Cord's tuxedo, he became Lord [last name]. We laughed about it at the time, and the girl made no effort to change it.

When I went to pick up the tuxedo on Friday, I used my best British accent when I asked for Lord [last name]'s tuxedo.

Here is milord (on the left) and his friends:

Since the light yesterday evening was so beautiful (overcast after a rain), I came home and shot some photos of my middle son and his girlfriend. This is a favorite - a shot I copied from a photo my niece did of a couple and their John Deere tractor.

Cord is an unusual name...? Lovely photo by the way - your son & his girlfriend are very photogenic!

That picture of the tractor reminds me of the Kenny Chesney song "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy"!

You have always posted lovely photos. As for that tractor and the last comment, I now have that song stuck in my head.

Ah, thank you for explaining that – I saw the ‘Lord’ in your Facebook, but didn’t dare make a funny comment in case there was a deeply painful and/or embarrassing story behind it.

I trust he will bear his title with honour and dignity, unlike British peers of the realm, who are generally a pretty dodgy lot.

Once again, great pics.
