AFFAIR TO REMEMBER
Keith is handsome, Elisabeth beautiful. Wisconsin is cold. Florida is warm. Their eyes meet and anyone who knows “that look” knows what’s about to happen. The details aren’t important. The story could be same all over the world. They fall in love. They decide to marry. The family lives in Wisconsin, important friends live in Florida. Life is complicated. Family north and good friends south.
A plan is hatched. They marry north in the company of family and hold a party. Then fly to Florida and arrange a big reception in the clubhouse in Pine Lakes where they live and invite their friends. After the big party in Florida, they take a cruise. The cruise to nowhere and the cruise to everywhere.
I noticed the mail in my box. Ms. Elizabeth Morris on the outside of the envelope. Inside was a colorful invitation. Keith and Elizabeth – January 29 – 4-8, P lakes, Living Room, Phone Number, Regrets only.
On the left side of the invitation, “Two less fish in the sea!” I couldn’t place the name. Then it hit me. Pine Lakes. The community across US 41 from Magnolia Landing. I photographed the Pine Lakes Panthers Softball team.
Keith Morris turns out to be Keith Burington, husband of Elizabeth Morris. Keith is in the back row, the fourth man from the left.

Dishing the dirt with the girls.
Have I got a story to tell you, girls!
At the end of the evening, Keith and Elizabeth open the gifts.
