It was twenty years ago today... Answered

On 24th March, 1990, Kitewife and I were married.

The church has since burned down.

Has burned down, or was burned down?
Congratulations anyway!

Thieves lit their way with the enormous altar candles, then knocked them over.

Sort of accidental then, what a shame.

L

They were insured - the shell was OK, so they completely re-vamped the insides.

Oh, the sort of thing a cynic might call an "insurance-job"? I doubt Aviva (ex Norwich Union) would accuse the church of getting God to have the place torched, but I'm mindful of certain persons would would view the entire episode (enjoying their nice new interior) in a similar way...

L

The thieves were caught (trying to sell the silverware), so I don't think it was a "job".

As a general observation, most UK churches have little, or even no, insurance, because they can't afford it, and they can't afford the work (locks, alarms etc) that would make it affordable.


Yes, I can imagine - the old buildings cost a fortune to maintain / heat / light / insure etc.

L

The main insurance thing is being empty for all but a couple of hours a week, and being "known" for being stuffed full of silverware (most of which was sold years ago to pay for the lead that was nicked off the roof).

Congratulations!
(I hate being late to find these things out, lol.)

Happy (belated) anniversary!

Great news!
 Any special plans?

We're staying with my parents in the Easter break, which means we get a night out without the boys.

An actual date!

 That should be nice! Enjoy.

Happy anniversary! 

.  Congratulations!

Being for the benefit of Mr. Kite.

Congrats and many more.

 Interesting way to kill the mood at the end, Hahaha.

Happy anniversary. Hope you have a good day together! (What are you doing on instructables on your 20 year anniversary anyway?)

By the way, why the Sgt. peppers picture?(I'm a Beatles fan, so I have to know.)

Duh, time change *Slaps head*...

Ah OK, I never did know the lyrics to that song.

Congratulations!

Weird coincidence, though--my wife and I were married today also, 26 years ago.

Oh, then congratulations to you two, too.
