"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

What were you doing?

Well, I just couldn't resist watching it!
After all, I did see his mother and father's in 1981.

I loved the speech (homily?) made by this clergyman.
(Sorry... I didn't write it immediately down... the Bishop of London?...I'm sure to find it someplace. The Rt Revd and Rt Hon. Dr Richard Chartres, Lord Bishop of London)

I hope to later be able to get the text... very good words for all couples and relationships.
I loved the Chaucer quote.
'Whan maistrie (mastery) comth, 
the God of Love anon, 
Beteth his wynges, 
and farewell, he is gon'.

Found on the web...
The short version...
