It’s Blast from the Past day on Google+. It’s also Robin’s birthday! So I’ve combined the two and chosen this picture:
This is a list Robin made before we got married in 1973, itemizing expenses. She can give the details … her dad gave her money for school (she was going to Cal at the time) and added a bit for the wedding. She was expected to take care of both school and wedding with the money. It was an inexpensive wedding, even in 1973 dollars. She saved money by making her own wedding dress (and my wedding shirt). We got married by a friend who was a judge, in a public park, so no expenses there. There is no record of how close we came to the budget she laid out here.
