I started coming down with That Ting What's Goin' 'Round late Thursday. I decided to spend Saturday in bed, unconscious for as long as possible, as I was to preside at a wedding that evening. The Hogar de Niñas de la Capitál was holding a feria at Instituto Episcopal San Cristóbal and the Lovely Mona attended, with our camera. This is a yearly fun-raiser for the Girl's Home. There is food (but I didn't get any codfish cake, 'cuz I'se sick) and entertainment. One of the Folkloric Dance Troupes from IESC performed, and folks had a good time.
Later, i presided at the Wedding of Griselda Sterling and Jean Bertrand. It was a beautiful wedding, and everything started on time; a first for a wedding in Panama in my experience. My day-long nap helped me somewhat and it wasn't necessary to wheel me in to the chancel on a hand-truck. The church was beautifully decorated, and they left all the flowers for our Sunday morning services. When the newly married couple exited the church, fire-works were set-off; it was really something!
