Wedding Bell Blues

Wedding Ring

69-year-old Aretha Franklin recently announced her engagement to Mr. Willie Wilkerson. Today, she's announcing that there will be no wedding. Apparently, things were moving too fast.

Excusez-moi? Aretha, honey, you're 69. Time goes faster with each passing year -- and it's just going to get faster. And how do we know that other stuff doesn't slow down, rust, or crash or something exponentially each year? You know what I mean? Good grief, girl, go for it! None of us are getting any younger.

great respect for aretha --

common chain of fools -- will be interested to see how the new gig goes... who's zoomin' who

P'raps she figured he might have wanted her for her money. But you're right. At 69, one doesn't have tons of time to mull things over. LOL! Happy Tuesday!! xo

Maybe they couldn't agree on a Pre-Nup?

Serena said...

You may be right, /t. As a natural woman, I'm sure she's just looking for a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t -- and no zoomin'. Wishing you a great week, too, on this Hump Day Eve.;)

Maybe so, Marion. But shoot, at their age, they might as well spend and enjoy it. Happy Tuesday to you, too!

Could be, Mr. G. I still say they ought to just go for it, though, while they're both ambulatory.:)

This is why you and I must get hitched post-haste, with no pre-nup. I want at least one litter. Hopefully a few with be redheads.

Serena said...

Oooo, this IS an exciting proposal, Pugsley. We'd probably fight constantly, though, over who gets the cutest collar, the most kibble, the window seat in the car.;)

And, the 5th Dimension...shades of yesterday!

Thanks, Quid.:)
