This past weekend I went to the 15th Wedding Anniversary of my cousin Kim and Dennis. I expected something different, you know the old crowd getting together looking to see who’s not showing up, checking out how everybody was dressed and most of all eat all the food.

Memphis, I was totally wrong, especially about this night. Were talking about Kim and Dennis and their friends did not let this night go by without them knowing it.

Remember this is Thanksgiving Evening at 7:00, after everyone has eaten turkey, ham, all the traditional thanksgiving dinner, after everyone has visited their families, friends, grandparents, and tried to catch the last play of the football game, Kim and Dennis got a packed room of friends and family members. Both families took the time from what ever schedule they had and decided to spend the rest of the evening with these two. And this was not a boring crowd, they came in ready for a good time, I know, I was there. Memphis if that is not showing love to these two, tell me what is.

Mark Baker was the DJ and live entertainment, he kept the musical atmosphere together and did a great sax performances for the couple. Mark opened the evening with the Lords Prayer, while this was going on, there, silently in the corner, pass Margaret, behind Kelvin and Tara, was a movie. A movie showing the past 15 years Kim and Dennis, pictures of places they have been, scenes from their houses, cars and of course dogs. The ending credits mentioned the names of past family members, ending with Harold. By the time Mark finished, Harold’s names was on the screen, the room was in tears.

I took the pictures of the event, thats my photo of the wedding party 15 years ago, would you believe that Kim thought I wasn’t there, (that’s another story). To see the pictures you have to got to the site http://www.wemcal.com.

The menu was Hot Wings, Shrimp, BBQ, Potatoes Au Gratin, Salad, Mixed Fruit, Punch and Champaign. There was enough for everyone, it seemed like a big indoor family reunion. Then came the Toss and Roast, Eric got the mic and did he bring the room to the floor. Eric passed the mic around to those that wanted to Toss or Roast Kim or Dennis, even Kelvin got the mic and expressed his feelings.

Then came the time for the dancing and cake cutting, that’s where my camera gear was set up however I took it down, all the photos I needed were taken in the other room. Let me tell you Mark got everybody on the dance floor even Angela got out her wheelchair to do some moves. There was the Kim and Dennis dance then the guess joined the floor.

Dennis like that Johnny Taylor era music, and you couldn’t get him off the floor, Mark got a soul Train line going with all the past dances exhibiting the old school moves, Mark got those group dances going, I cannot name them but he did. I’m looking through the camera lens and I see Dennis’s Mother on the floor, she had a great time. Memphis, let me tell you, this is no lie Mark Actually Brought The Roof Down!!!, the ceiling was actually falling in.

By this time It was time for me to go, so I packed my gear and said my goodbye to everyone, I don’t’ know how long the party lasted but from My conversation with Kim later, they had a great time.

Congratulation Kim and Dennis for 15 years of Marriage.
