Did You Know That…(Crica 2000)

Here’s my version of those “25 facts about me” posts but with a twist: this is the actual list of facts that Gail and I prepared 9 years ago for our wedding reception on July 8, 2000.

Each fact corresponded to a table number…and once Gary or Dave (our awesome emcees) read “your” table fact, it was your turn to eat!

Hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane…some of it’s quite amusing even now.
