Every other year Colleen and Deke have spent Thanksgiving with their friend, Toby Malina, and her husband, Jim Heid, who live in Albion, a few miles south of Mendocino on the northern California Coast. This is the 4th year that they have set up a tent in their yard to entertain 40 or 50 guests.
When dinner was over, Toby announced that there would be a wedding! Colleen and Deke were married by Toby who spoke eloquently about them. This was a surprise to most of the guests, though our family knew about it for several weeks.
Wheeler and Colleen; Deke, Max, and Sam enter the tent after the main dinner.
Colleen’s son Wheeler and Deke’s sons, Max and Sam McClelland, were the attendants.
Cutting the cake: Congratulations, Colleeen and Deke!!
It was an exciting day!
