Congratulations To Jenna And Henry On Your Wedding Day

I've been struggling all week over what to give Jenna Bush as a wedding gift. Today she is joined with Henry Hager in Holy matrimony and indecision has kept me waiting until the last minute to send a token of my best wishes. To be fair, and I always like to be fair to myself, just what was I supposed to send to a woman who seems to have everything? She is marrying a Republican, she is from a family of means, her father is the leader of the free world and she's pretty easy on the eyes. My usual musical card and Best Buy gift certificate just didn't seem to fit the bill. Well, after much thought and consideration I have finally settled on a couple of things which I hope they will appreciate.

Jenna and Henry,
My first gift is heartfelt hope for your happiness through this sacred Apache wedding prayer.

Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place
To enter into the days of your togetherness
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
My second gift to you is appropriate for any occasion and I'm sure you will love it, love it, love it. So enjoy this picture of Cha-Ka the Pakuni.

Congratulations, Jenna and Henry!

    Thanks, Freadom. You know, it's tough for us guys to know if we're on track with the whole gift thing, but as long as another guy agrees I think I'm fine. :-). Plus, it's Cha-Ka after all.

    I'll take the Best Buy gift card...

    You have to respect the fact that they kept the wedding such a private affair when they had the opportunity to go big time with a huge White House televised wedding of the century. You know they are good together since that first step was such a wise one.

    I do like that they didn't pull a Nixon and hold it in the Rose Garden.

    And, db, you're not getting a Best Buy card because I can't trust that you won't run off and buy one of those horrible "M-rated" video games. You'll get Cha-Ka the Pakuni and you'll like it.

    LMAO. The only games worth playing are rated "M"...no fair!

    I'm not sure . . . what can be more fun than Mario and Luigi chasing around mushrooms in order to change their sense of reality . . . wait, what the hell is that game rated?
