Super-post:  I am combining this week’s contribution to the That’s A Look! files with a submission of retrospective images of my soon-to-be husband, Jimmie R. Martin.  About this time next week we will be amidst our global friends in a ceremony to unite us for eternity.

And I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to post this priceless image:

Tinker, a well known staple of the Internationally renowned Reno Housewives Themed-Camp readies and primps to perform entroupe as bridesmaids at another Black Rock City wedding.  A stunning example of Haute Couture collision in the high desert.

Jimmie, a.k.a. “Tink”, was one of the original founders of the Sierra Safari Zoo in Reno.  We host, and are privileged care givers to over 150 guests, who are our extended family through good and challenging times.  Jimmie is an astute and dedicated papa, whose heart is as big as the universe. He’s an amazing man,  Lo amo caro!

We have a great community of human and non-human members – at the zoo AND out on the playa!

This year our campmates get to be “our” bridesmaids!  But, we’re still ready and raring to maid-it for all the other happy couples out there.  We love making processions through the dust, or is that we love making dust through processions!! 🙂

At the end of September we head off to Washington, DC for our legal wedding, but the important one will be here at home camping out amongst our spiritual siblings, and enjoying the joy.

I present my love and life-mate, Jimmie:

Jimmie, and Alfie as a baby
