It's Official

Yes, it's official.

The Little Princess is getting married.

No date has been set ... or at least shared with us ... but this weekend, LT asked the Little Princess to marry him. And she said "yes."

Last week, LT invited the Wife and me to dinner. We'd taken him to dinner on occasion, and he'd taken us to dinner on occasion. This was going to be another one of those occasions.

Or not.

When we got to Outback, we saw him sitting in the back.

After a bit, he told us something that he had on his mind. And that was the Little Princess.

He wanted to marry her and asked for our blessing.

I told him as long as he made her happy, he had our blessing and support.

This weekend, he went to Glynn County -- the Little Princess is taking courses in Brunswick this semester -- and asked her to marry him.

She said "yes."

I've said before that LT is a fine young man. And the Little Princess seems to think so, too. And that's what's important.

What I think really doesn't matter ... although I do think highly of him. What really matters is that she's happy.

And for that reason alone, LT will be a welcome member of the family.


  1. Well, that is fantastic, Basil! Congratulations!

  2. What a beautiful ring! The LT has good taste! Congratulations all around and I hope they'll be very happy!

    Basil's going to be a father-in-law! Time flies, doesn't it, Pops?! :)

  3. Congratulations. Hope you and Ole Butterbars have as nice a relationship as me and my f-in-l.

    Hey Bro, Mama called Saturday to share the news, but I would not say anything until you did. Congrats. The LT is a good guy, but somewhat gullible...I even have him fooled into thinking I'm nice. :) He does make the Little Princess very happy. I love the way her face lights up when he is in the room. Thank you for the picture of the ring because I have not seen it yet. Aunt Meanie will be in touch about wedding plans later.

  5. Congratulations, Basil! From what you've told us about the LT, he will be an outstanding addition to your family.

  6. Congrats to the entire family. I hope the LT can contribute some to WTW.

  7. Congrats to the Little Princess and the LT.

  8. Congratulations all 'round! Does this mean you are live-blogging the wedding? LOL

  9. Fabulous! Congratulations, Basil!
