Malcolm and Michelle
The Wedding

Malcolm and Michele got married on October 12, 1991 at Yosemite National Park. The event was a weekend party and mini-GSP reunion (without the tents). Many GSPs attended to help celebrate the wedding, see old friends, and enjoy the park.

Malcolm and Michele were married in a ceremony at the Ahwahnee Hotel at Yosemite. GSPs Ken and Ed stood with Malcolm and Belinda read a passage from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's "Gift of the Sea" book.

The Party

Deb came to celebrate her 30th birthday, and Kris was glad to help.  Others took advantage of the chance to see old friends or just relax and enjoy.

Toasters...

I know what you`re thinking. You`re wondering what you`re going to give Malcolm and Michele for a wedding present. A lot of people have been scratching their heads over this, trying to figure out what would be the perfect gift for the happy couple. Well, I think I can help you.

Actually, it was Chris Kent (or was it Susan? I forget) who came up with this idea. It`s not a "group" gift, where we all chip in and buy them something neat, like a microwave oven or a 500 gallon aquarium. This is something that each of you can buy seperately. It doesn`t matter if they all match, and in fact it`s probably better if they don`t. It`ll even fit on an airplane quite easily if you`re flying to California for the wedding. The important thing is that your selection should express your own feelings about the occasion, and about M&M.

By now you`re probably at the edge of your seat, wondering what this perfect gift is. It`s no big deal, really. It`s a toaster.

This seems like the ideal wedding present. First, they said that they didn`t want any presents, which really means that they don`t want anything that is really expensive. Second, it`s something that everyone can probably use (except Eileen, of course :-). Third, there are lots of models available with gobs and gobs of different features, allowing you to choose one that matches your own level of silliness. And last but not least, just imagine how M&M will react when they start opening presents realize what`s going on. Personally, I hope that they open all of the presents in Yosemite so that we can all see their reaction as they open the 20th package containing a toaster.

So that`s the suggestion. If you like it then go out an buy a toaster. Any toaster will do - even a used one. Participation is optional (though I would like to hear from you if you decide to join in the fun). The important thing, though, is to keep this secret from M&M. It won`t be an effective joke if they know about it in advance.

If you have questions or concerns feel free to contact me.

PS. Feel free to spread the word to anyone else who is invited to the wedding. I arbitrarily decided to only send this message to people who I knew (thought?) had a Purdue or GSP connection.

Renewing Friendships

Malcolm and Michele asked everybody to spend the weekend with them at Yosemite. That gave everybody time to renew friendships. These pictures were taken at dinner on Sunday, the reception at Saturday, and on the Four Mile trail between Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point.

Kids....

There are many ways to hold kids. Both Tammie and Tony tried to demonstrate, but Ed had to do things his own way. Unfortunately, nobody captured Eileen's expression when Ed said "Look Eileen, I learned how to hold a baby!" Both Anne and Tyler seemed to have recovered.   But mostly, the kids had fun on their own.
