The wedding in Maine brought me together with all four of my sisters and my mom for the first time in many a moon. We are all barking mad, and tend to get even more lunatic as a group.

Above, my youngest sister Roe, on the left, helps my oldest sister Libba roll utensils in napkins for the rehearsal dinner Libba hosted with her husband Simon. There were a hundred guests, and Simon cooked all the main dishes, salmon and beef, himself. It was a grand success but stressful. We kept Libba from hysteria beforehand by making her laugh at really stupid jokes.

In the end, no one was seriously harmed by any of the cutlery.
