That's a real wedding feast you have planned there.

I'm off to Canada next week. Maybe I'll find a husband.

Good luck.

It's Sunday, guys and I want to wish you:

A very happy Fathers' Day from one gay father to two others, and:

A lifetime of love, health and happiness as you get married and your lives enter a wonderful new phase.

We are going on a honeymoon in August. We are going to visit England and Scotland.
