I was very excited to learn that my dear friends Shannon and Roddy are getting married this summer in Austin at the Salt Lick, where I shared Easter lunch with them in 2006. Shannon and I worked together one summer at the Mustang Island Family Camp. Her full name is Shannon Eileen Kelly, like each of my three sisters (Shannon, Brigid Eileen, and Kelly), so naturally my parents liked her instantly.
She is one of the brightest, funniest women I know and her fiancee is altogether too much fun for a professor. I had the opportunity to have dinner with them last year in York and am looking forward to toasting this great couple in Austin, perhaps with a warm Busch tall boy in Shannon's honor.
