ZOMG Florida!!!
First same-sex marriages, this afternoon.  (One of the couples are friends of mine, and just the sweetest people!!)

12:01 am, Missy and I are officially recognized as married by the State of Florida, for what that's worth . . . but much more important, other couple can marry, here, without having to go to a different state.  I would have wanted to get married in Washington state in any case, but for many others, this is home.  It's where their hearts are.

They'll start issuing marriage licenses in some locations at 12:01, and mass weddings go off at 3 am!!  Sweet dreams for everyone tonight.  I can hardly believe it!

The first moment I heard this, I thought of you, at last, legal and recognized in the state that spawned Anita Bryant!

The triumph of love over hate and narrow mindedness. It is a sweet thing to see. My heart is overflowing.

we've come a long way, baby

A couple of weeks ago, we met with a guy who's going to be overseeing the installation of our new front door.

He sat on our couch and, in between discussing door hardware and such, told us a lovely story about his brother, who had worked at a very trendy restaurant in Miami Beach back in the day. Anita Bryant came in to the restaurant . . . and the brother threw her out.

Politely. Very politely. But he refused to serve her or allow her to remain in the restaurant. We cheered.
