Do These People Look Like Criminals?

Daughter #2 and her cute fiance are trying to save money. You see, two weddings in our family was not in our budget this year. So anywhere you can pinch a penny is good. They made their own invites and included a homemade DVD inside. In order to save on postage they hand-delivered many of the invites to our friends and neighbors. Well, after a while they got kinda tired running from door to door, so they decided to put the invites in mailboxes.

One lady, (no names will be menitoned!) called and said, "Vivian, I just wanted to let you know that your daughter and her boyfriend can be put in jail for putting those invitations in mailboxes. It's a federal offense, you know! Do those two want to go to jail???"

I couldn't believe it. Yes, yes, I know. I'm sure it's a federal offense, but they were just trying to pinch a penny!

And BTW, Daughter #2 is certainly affected by the WGA strike. For two, she is an aspiring screenwriter and this kinda puts things on hold. Her screenwriting professor at the college told her to get out there and picket. But carrying a picket sign doesn't pay the bills. And two, she is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and they are not working, in support of the WGA. It's a bad predicament for her to be in...especially when she's trying to put a wedding on!

So what to do? What to do?

Go on a road trip with your friends to Utah. Daughter #1 and her husband bought their first home and move in this weekend. Daughter #2 will help her get all settled in.

No, this isn't Daughter #1 with her husband in Utah, but it could be! "City girl moves to the country." Oh, how will she survive?
