no problem. the big question in the e-mail was about sarah and luke's wedding.
1st off, luke's father? didn't show. luke blamed his mother for that. later he would learn, from her, that his father had gone banktupt. for that reason, he was embarrassed to show.
so his father didn't show.
sarah needed some thing old to wear. she went to norah's where she saw broadie. they were polite to each other, he wished her well and excused himself. she and norah (sally field) went upstairs to go throught he various necklaces and rings.
sarah found the necklace she wanted to wear.
norah lied and said it was tacky. she didn't think that. but sarah didn't know that broadie gave that to norah back in high school. she was afraid of the fallout if sarah wore it.
sarah pronounced it perfect (not knowing the backstory on the necklace) and said she and kitty used to play with it and other pieces. she said that she'd ask her (norah) why she didn't wear it and that norah would say it was too special to risk losing.
so that was her something old (the other stuff was taken care of).
they get to the church.
kevin's taking care of last minute details.
sarah's freaking out. tommy's ready to walk her down the aisle and that's when she tells kevin and tommy she has to go for a walk - by herself.
she leaves the church, walks down the sidewalk and that's where she sees broadie's rv. he's there and explains he wanted to see her walk out of the church in her wedding dress.
i was expecting her to say, 'now you have, go!'
and he told her what i wrote about last night (going to her high school reunion, etc.) and she asked himif to give her away. so they went back to the church.
how did she look?
sarah has looked very good this year. they've got a hair do that works for her and the make up's done right. she used to be (my opinion) kitty's plain sister. now her own natural beauty has emerged.
and the dress was perfect. i really loved her dress.
and for any 1 who wonders, this was her 2nd wedding but luke's 1st and he had already told her he wanted a big wedding because this would be his only 1.
so broadie's wearing very casual clothes. he hadn't planned to attend.
he walks her down the aisle and every appears touched - not just the walkers - so you have to wonder: did every 1 but sarah know that broadie might have been her father?
was every 1 talking about it for years and years?
sally field did narration throughout the episode. it started with her messing up her intro on the radio show and explaining her week - the wedding and other things.
so afte rhe walked her down the aisle, there was sally doint narration and we didn't get the exchange of the vows
it moved very quickly, which i think wasthe point.
it was a really nice episode.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
