Are You Serious?
Yes, yes we are.
Again, yes. We’ve even told our parents.
Why did you pop the question?
’cause I love her and it was the right time to do it.
It’s the baby, isn’t it?
Nope, Albert or Kennedy had nothing to do with this.
Did she know?
Rae didn’t have a clue.
Did you buy the ring beforehand?
I sure did, and this caused the delay ’cause I couldn’t get up to Shepparton to buy it. Everyone in our family has bought their engagement and wedding rings at the same jeweller, a close family friend, for over 30 years so I couldn’t mess with that tradition.
Is it nice?
I think so. She thinks so. So yes.
When’s the wedding?
We have an idea but need to check some things our first. It will probably be post Albert or Kennedy.
What does Phee think?
She’s over the moon and guessed what was going on with one glance.
Did you get down on one knee?
Sure did. (Thank god for anti inflammatories.)
Why on earth would an intelligent woman like Rae say yes?
I have absolutely no idea, I’m only glad she did.
