Rodney Goes To The Wedding

Dave and Laura and Cake

We went to Dave & Laura's wedding on Saturday in Champaign-Urbana IL. And yes, Rodney was there.

Dave and I shared an office through our MS and Ph.D. days at Michigan Tech. The Rodney Reindeers had come out from Hallmark the year before, so I introduced them to the Physics grad students. (grin) This particular Rodney was my second Rodney, but my first Office Rodney, affectionately nicknamed the Laboratory Retriever. Dave and I spread the cult of Rodney for years.

The wedding cake had vanilla or chocolate cake, but the German chocolate cupcakes were made by Dave, using his late mom's special recipe. (Click on photo for larger.)

We'll be more serious later. (grin) But Congratulations Dave & Laura!
